Video games aren’t all bad. Some may even have educational benefits. But for a substantial number of gamers, they are sleep killers.

According to scientists, the average delay in bedtime on nights spent gaming is 101 minutes. So if you are too exhausted to get through most days, perhaps it’s time to curb your gaming habit.
