AbstractOnline binge-watching is quite prevalent among the younger generation today. This often leads to delayed bedtime by a few hours to even binge-watching the entire night. Self-control plays a crucial role whereas the lack of it might interfere with day-to-day activities. Standardized scales were used to study Online Binge-Watching Behavior, Bedtime Procrastination, and Self-Control. The sample consisted of 40 young adults ranging from 18 to 25 years of age. The results found that there is a significant positive correlation between online binge-watching and bedtime procrastination. Also, it was found that there is a significant positive correlation between general self-discipline and online binge-watching. Further, it is revealed that there is a significant positive correlation between general self-discipline and bedtime procrastination. There was no significant relationship between impulse control, online binge-watching, and bedtime procrastination. The negative effects of binge-watching can be reduced by trying to reduce the amount of time spent watching TV, maintaining a tech-life balance ; practicing good sleep hygiene.
