BrainCraft
Hi! I'm Vanessa Hill, a behavioural scientist and science communicator. On BrainCraft I explore psychology, neuroscience and self-development. My mission is to bridge the gap between scientific research and your daily well-being. Outside of my regular videos, you can find BrainCraft as a series on PBS, watch my YouTube Originals show Sleeping With Friends, or check out my PBS docu-series Attention Wars. There's so much to watch, I'm honestly not sure why you're still reading this. But since you are, please consider subscribing and supporting my Patreon so I can continue to make educational videos 🧠✨

So trying to fix procrastination with productivity hacks like time management apps or optimizing your workflow makes sense, right? But that’s the tricky thing about procrastination: it’s a mental phenomenon, so we need those psychological tricks. Making changes to the way we *think* rather than the way we work, is key.

While melatonin isn’t very effective for treating general insomnia, it IS good for jet lag. Melatonin was found to be effective for jet lag (in people traveling across five or more time zones) by several placebo-controlled trials: https://www.cochrane.org/CD001520/DEPRESSN_melatonin-for-the-prevention-and-treatment-of-jet-lag More information on melatonin: https://www.med.upenn.edu/cbti/assets/user-content/documents/Burgess_UsingBrightLightandMelatonintoReduceJetLag.pd
