3 Reasons to Quit the Late Night Binges

By Genevieve Cunningham

Today’s society loves the late night binge. With on demand TV, the internet, and plenty of devices to keep us awake, there’s nothing better than snuggling down for an all night Netflix watching session or a spiral of YouTube videos.  But even though we all love them, the late night binges may be damaging our health. If these little sessions have become a part of your regular routine, take a look at these three reasons to quit them sooner rather than later.

We’re Severely Sleep Deprived

As a group, we are severely sleep deprived. Many researchers are even beginning to take notice. But what does this matter? Sleep deprivation can increase the risk for major problems with our health. Diabetes, heart disease, mental health issues, and a weak immune system are all problems that plague the chronically sleep deprived. Our bodies desperately need sleep in order to function efficiently and effectively. When we don’t get enough -- which we definitely aren’t -- we’re ruining our health possibly even shortening our lives.

It’s Affecting Work

When we don’t get enough sleep, productivity plummets. And who notices this more than work? A lack of sleep can cause an inability to concentrate, apathy, and lower productivity levels as a whole. Feel like you’re dragging at work? Is your boss on you about getting your work done? Take a look at your late night habits, and you may have the answer you need to improve your productivity and step it up at your place of work.

It Might Be Contributing to Weight Gain

Most people in today’s world carry around a few extra pounds. Unfortunately, this number has risen over the past few years. There are more people who are considered obese than ever before. Why? It’s definitely in our diet … but it’s also in our habits. Late nights often lead to stressful mornings. And the more stress hormone you produce, the higher percentage of belly fat you’re going to have. Late nights are also generally ridden with late night snacks, meaning more calories and heavier diets every day.

Though a few random late night binges probably won’t hurt anything, doing them on a regular basis can really harm your health. Put a stop to these regular sessions to save your health, boost the way that you feel, and improve your productivity a little bit every day … and for the rest of your life.
