The impossible task of turning off and forgetting about the deadline the next day or the game you wish to complete seems a fight every night. The thing is that people don’t understand they are ruining there sleeping patterns by doing this.
As the picture above shows we all do it. We all have “Oh just one more go” or “one more paragraph” then it turns into another two hours and, its turned 4am and your up at 6am for an important meeting or school. You need to get to a time and say “that’s enough”. We all need to work but our bodies also need to rest and switch off. It is healthy for us, now matter how much you wish to play your game.
Keep The Office Separate
You know that moment where your sat up doing work and you start feeling tired and fed up of sat up in a chair? So you think ill take my laptop and lie in bed with it? Well don’t. Your bed and your bedroom in fact is your place for relaxation, your break away from the work and the struggles that keep you busy through out the day. It is very important that you keep the office away from the bedroom and keep the bedroom as relaxing and with very little reminders of the work that feels also very heavy on your shoulders.
From my experience, I do use my consoles, PC and work in my bedroom but i play the consoles, and work sat up at my desk but that’s because i have no other choice. I find if i sit up and work enough, and then when it comes to that moment of about 11pm and i am fed up of slouching, i turn it all off. Then when i get in my bed it feels like a nice relaxing place to be and it helps me shut off. If you do have the space to have a separate office then definitely do it.
Work hard, Relax harder.

Now a day’s, we all enjoy the use of different types and cultures of media and provides us with another lengthy list of distractions and things to keep our minds busy. I am going to talk about different aspects of media that keep us awake and make the next morning impossible to get out of bed.
Gamers have always had a reputation for being anti-social with abnormal sleeping patterns, but are our assumptions correct?
A number of, sleeping, research studies have been directed at the younger generation. And the modern day teenager loves nothing more than a good “shoot ‘em up” computer game. So has the new generation of gamers become the cause of teenager’s non-existent early nights and lack of motivation to get up in the morning? Studies suggest due to hormone imbalance melatonin is released at a later time during teenage years, meaning for some it just isn’t possible to have an early night, also their natural body clock shifts to a later waking time – so being a zombie waking up for class is for most teenager’s an unavoidable reality. So before we even reflect on the effects of gaming, it is clear that younger gamers (who make up the majority of all gamers) are often already lacking the necessary quantity of sleep.
