(Video) Beware! Many People Might Suffer From ‘Revenge Bedtime Procrastination’

The ‘Revenge Bedtime Procrastination’ or also known as the ‘Bedtime Procrastination’ is actually a psychological phenomenon, where many people would stay up later than they own desire in an attempt to have control over the night. This is because they perceive themselves perhaps subconsciously to lack influence over events during the day.

Although revenge bedtime procrastination can be so tempting at the moment, late nights followed by early mornings can directly lead to very serious sleep deprivation. Cutting back on sleep can have significant negative effects on mental, physical, and also emotional health with short- and long-term consequences. This is definitely not healthy.

Revenge bedtime procrastination has been on the rise because of COVID-19 and stress associated with stay-at-home orders. Surveys have found that working from home has often extended working hours. People have had a reduction in normal leisure time since the pandemic started. These factors may actually trigger stress and sleep procrastination and contribute to the fact that nearly 40% of people have had sleeping problems during the pandemic of COVID-19.

The best remedy for sleep procrastination is actually healthy sleep hygiene, which involves creating good sleep habits and an environment conducive to sleep. Remember that it will take more than one night’s sleep to truly get into good sleep habits. Having set routines can make behaviors feel almost automatic. Some of the routines could be:

  • Keeping a consistent bedtime and wake-up time, including on non-working days.
  • Avoiding caffeine late in the afternoon or evening.
  • Stopping the use of electronic devices, for at least half an hour, and ideally longer, before bed.
