Staring at a screen before bed is bad for your sleep, but we do it anyway. If you like watching TV to help you fall asleep, Napflix might be a good compromise.
Screens mess with your circadian rhythms, but watching TV also affects your cognitive stimulation. In other words, it gets your mind working when you should be relaxing into sleep mode.
The problem is, some of us like falling asleep to the background noise of the television. That’s where Napflix might help. It’s a website that curates quiet, boring video content to help you relax. As they put it:
We all know the feeling of insomnia. Your body wants to sleep but your mind is still awake and active. So how can we steady up our mind.
Napflix is a video platform where you can find the most silent and sleepy content selection to relax your brain and easily fall asleep.
The site includes videos of burning fireplaces, rainfall and lava lamps. Some of these “relaxing” videos are subjective, though. There’s a video on a lecture about the Higgs Boson, for example, which seems like an odd choice, considering it’s a pretty interesting, stimulating subject. There are healthier ways to fall asleep, but if you like the background noise, head to the link below to check out Napflix for yourself.
