TikTok Is The Worst App For A Good Night’s Sleep


If you’re someone who likes to wind down before you go to bed by scrolling TikTok, like me... we may want to think twice about it. A new report suggests that the social media app may be keeping us from getting a good night’s sleep.

  • We’ve all heard that that the blue light emitted from phones can cause sleep issues, and now a new study has looked into the effects of all that pre-bedtime use of social media.
  • It claims that those who use TikTok right before bed have the most trouble falling asleep.
  • In fact, after scrolling through TikTok it takes users one hour and seven minutes to fall asleep.
  • In addition, they only spend 14% of their sleep cycle in REM sleep, half the recommended amount for a healthy adult.
  • And TikTok isn’t the only app that’s bad for you:
    • Instagram users take 58 minutes to fall asleep and spend 15.5% off the night in REM sleep.
    • Snapchat users take 56 minutes to fall asleep and spend 16% off the night in REM sleep.
    • Twitter users take 50 minutes to fall asleep and spend 18% off the night in REM sleep.
    • Facebook users take 45 minutes to fall asleep and spend 19.5% off the night in REM sleep. 
  • In comparison, those who don’t use their devices before bedtime spend 23% of their sleep cycle in REM sleep.
