The Doctors share that nearly two-thirds of Americans sleep with the television or lights on -- and it may be responsible for weight gain!
So how do these two seemingly unrelated things connect? The Doctors explain light from TVs can affect sleep and cause sleeping issues (like waking numerous times in the night) and a lack of sleep can lead to weight gain. The study found that the light from the TVs affects the participant's circadian rhythm and leading to a disruption of their metabolism and melatonin levels.
In order to get better sleep, The Doctors suggest having a regular sleep schedule and to shut down all devices, TVs, tablets and phones, 30 minutes before going to bed.
