👉 Go to Revenge Bedtime Procrastination by Anne Helen Petersen - Culture Study

I have never heard this term before, but it is an interesting read, and I’m pretty guilty myself of grabbing my phone at night after turning in.

Or you’re actually doing something you really like: reading for hours, playing a video game you actually enjoy, quilting in the quiet hours of the night, leafing through a new cookbook. It matters less what you’re doing and more that you’re doing it instead of what you’d planned to do: go to bed so as to sleep long enough to feel legitimately rested before you go through it all again. You’re revenge bedtime procrastinating.

I don’t have social apps, but I have been known to scroll through my RSS feeds. Luckily they have an end.
