This is where it's at. If people know sleep is good for x, y, and z, but continue to watch Netflix or play video games the research is lost. We need more research on how to influence behavior change.

Increased bright sunlight exposure (but not outdoor temperature) is associated with lower fasting insulin, increased insulin sensitivity, and lower blood triglycerides. 🌞🌞🌞

Wow, love it 👏. Absolutely, I see this as having so many benefits. I could see improvements on stress levels, grades, mood, wellbeing etc. Not sure any empirical evidence out there, so would love to do a study on this 😁!

Yikes, hopefully this has improved with more schools on board to start schools later.

Yes challenging, and new study found evening ex 7-10pm shifts circadian rhythms later . Napping good strategy but keep short <30 min and cut-off by 4pm. Don't want it too close to bed or will make falling asleep worse. Recovery nap next day an option too.

Studies reveal the heritability of chronotype is 50% and that of sleep duration is 31-65% (Kalmbach 2017, Lopez-Minguez 2017).

I'm very proud of these undergrads who helped with our depression + exercise study N=17,000. We found non-exercisers had ⬆️ scores on the depression scale, 3 days of exercise per wk had lowest depression scores + 45-59min session was sweet spot for lowest scores.

Katie Bouman led the creation of an algorithm that helped capture the first ever image of a black hole. We asked her what this breakthrough means for science. For more reaction from other scientists, visit our YouTube channel:

Yet we continue to show pictures of babies who are not sleeping in a safe environment, which perpetuates the problem. 1) Not on back 2) Loose bedding 3) Pillows in background 4) Not in crib Alone, Back, Crib (ABCs) for safe infant sleeping.

The "nappuccino". Should add that info in! My concern is the effect on recovery that night. It is a fascinating area to explore!

Did you know that caffeine can increase - or decrease - your energy level?
