The term "bedtime procrastination" was coined in 2014 by Dr Floor Kroese and is defined as going to bed later than planned while not having any external circumstances for doing it.
Revenge bedtime procrastination is the phenomenon where people who don't have much control over their daytime life refuse to sleep early to regain some sense of freedom during late-night hours. Instead of going to bed, you decide to scroll on social media at the expense of your sleep.
Research differentiates between bedtime procrastination (procrastination before going to bed) and while-in-bed procrastination. In both cases, there are three common behaviours to pay attention to:
Sleep loss is more common due to increased working hours and an emphasis on active leisure. As a result, people tend to compromise their nightly sleep, becoming chronically sleep-deprived.
Studies show that people can't learn to manage with less sleep. Too little sleep will have adverse effects. Your body won't properly recharge, leading to irritability, impaired decision-making, thinking, and memory, reduced impulse control, and health issues such as metabolic disorder and cardiovascular problems.
Staying up a bit later to carve out some leisure time may feel good in the short term but may be damaging in the long run.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
