If yes, then according to a recent study you could be seriously risking your health in the process.
A new study recently linked binge-watching to increased risk of insomnia, fatigue, and poor sleep quality. They defined binge-viewing as "watching multiple consecutive episodes of the same television show in one sitting on a screen, be it a television, laptop, computer or tablet computer screen". The binge-watchers were 98 percent more likely to suffer from poor sleep than the participants who did not binge-watch, according to the study.
People might sleep an appropriate amount of time (seven to nine hours for adults), but the quality is not always good, says lead author Liese Exelmans, a researcher at the Leuven School for Mass Communication Research. Each subject was asked about the quality of their sleep, as well as insomnia, fatigue, and how often they had binge watched shows in the month before the trial.
The study surveyed 423 participants between the ages 18 and 25, and about 75 percent of the participants were students. Binge-watching happens when people spend successive hours watching a television show in one sitting, which makes them more alert and prevents them from falling asleep quickly.
The study showed that increased cognitive arousal prior to sleep is the mechanism explaining the effects of binge viewing on sleep quality. Men binge-watched less frequently than women, but the viewing session almost doubled that of women. They were assessed on their TV habits as well as their sleep quality, fatigue, insomnia and pre-sleep alertness.
Regular TV viewing does not have this problem, the research concluded.
Co author Jan Van den Bulck, professor of communication studies at the University of MI, said: "Our study signals binge viewing is prevalent in young adults and that it may be harmful to their sleep". "We think they become intensely involved with the content, and may keep thinking about it when they want to go to sleep".
"This prolongs sleep onset or, in other words, requires a longer period to "cool down" before going to sleep, thus affecting sleep overall".
The researchers compared the results to the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and they found that the variables are correlated. They also were more exhausted and felt less rested after a night of sleep although they did get reasonable hours of sleep. Such a trend is concerning, not just because it is becoming more frequent, but also because poor sleep can lead to problems like reduced memory function, obesity, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.
