We thought the internet couldn’t get any more ridiculous, but then we heard about Napflix. No, it’s not misspelled. It’s a Netflix-inspired streaming service that wants to bore you to sleep with a collection of dull videos, including someone playing with a miniature sandbox and rocks for 45 minutes. We’d argue some of the videos aren’t boring (see: pups prancing around at a Finnish dog show). Regardless, watching mind-numbing TV isn’t going to help you fall sleep.
Exposure to light, specifically the blue light emitted from your computer screen and phone, messes with your sleep instead of helping you doze off. There are lots of things that can help you fall asleep (we’ve got a list of 27), but watching boring will videos will just be, well, boring.
