According to the journal “Neuroscience,” watching anything intense, like scary movies or the nightly news, can make it harder to drift off.

Researchers explain that seeing intense images before falling asleep makes those unsettling images stick, which basically strengthens our memories of them. It also makes us more likely to dream about them, and even think about them the next day. So, researchers suggest avoiding those programs an hour before bed so they won’t affect your dreams or mood.
