They offer a variety of benefits, such as access to academic resources, learning opportunities, entertainment, social connection, news and information, and networking opportunities. However, SNSs can also have harmful effects, such as addiction, cyberbullying, body image issues, reduced productivity, and increased risk of depression.Ayurveda considers sleep (nidra) to be one of the three pillars of health, along with diet (ahara) and exercise (vyayama).
