Have a social media detox

21 Day Wellbeing Challenge, Day #11

The purpose of a social media detox is to take a break from the constant stream of information and stimuli that social media provides. It allows you to disconnect, reduce stress, and focus on other activities that promote well-being.

Establish a habit of disconnecting from social media at least 2 hours before bedtime. The blue light emitted by electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep, making it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep.

In addition, engaging with social media before bedtime can be mentally stimulating and may cause you to feel anxious or stressed, which can also disrupt sleep.

By disconnecting from social media at least 2 hours before bedtime, you give your brain time to wind down and prepare for sleep. This can help you fall asleep more easily and sleep more soundly throughout the night.

It’s important to note that the exact timing of your social media detox may depend on your individual sleep needs and habits. However, establishing a consistent bedtime routine that includes disconnecting from electronic devices can help promote better sleep and overall well-being.
