Researchers are saying the human brain has a bed time–even if you don’t!

The human brain was not meant to stay awake past midnight.

A recent study found that those who stay up past midnight tend to have changes to their brain that impact how they interact with the world. They may view the world more negatively, engage in harmful behaviors and make impulsive decisions. Murder, violent crime and the use of illicit substances are common after midnight.

Grandma was not lying when she said nothing good happens after midnight.

Limiting screen time is also a must. It is one of the worst things to do to our brain as we are trying to shut down.

On average, what time do you go to bed? Do you watch tv or your phone before you fall asleep?
