The benefits of reading before bed
There have been studies done around the world that have highlighted the numerous benefits of reading before bed.
One positive is that it can help reduce the amount of cortisol in your brain. Cortisol is a substance that helps provide energy to your body. Of course, that’s not very helpful when it’s time to get some sleep! High levels of cortisol can come from being stressed out, and reading can help lessen stress.
In addition to stress, reading can help lessen your chances of being affected by other mental issues. Studies have shown that reading books can help with everything from depression and anxiety and to helping you avoid Alzheimer’s later in life.
When you read before bed, you also get yourself away from the potentially harmful light that your TV, phone and other screens emit. Blasting your eyes with such rays can make it harder for you to fall asleep, which in turn can lead to a variety of negative health effects. So keep that in mind next time you go to grab your phone for reading and scrolling before bed!
