Though it sounds confusing, sleep procrastination is when we deliberately delay our sleep. It could be to catch another episode of the show we are watching, or scroll through social media, lying on the bed.
We could sleep if we want to, but choose not to and spend precious sleep time on something else instead.
It may seem like an innocent hour of doing nothing in particular, but it can add up and even cause chronic sleep deprivation in some cases.
Sleep is great for our immune system, reduces chronic health issues and keeps us in shape.
We should be sleeping seven hours each night, but Netflix, Instagram and many other services hire talented people to ensure that we don’t sleep and keep using their products!
Sleep procrastinators can be busy people who simply need some free time when they do nothing, and workaholics who wish to forego sleep and do something more productive.
Ego depletion is when we lack the willpower to resist doing something that is not good for us. We had been so responsible the whole day, and then we just let go in the evening, tired of holding back.
