Are They Getting Enough Sleep?


Henry Street School students are feeling tired.

In a survey conducted this week, it was found that students were getting about 4 hours of sleep per night. Data shows that social media and video games are mainly to blame.

This is in contrast to what doctors say. Doctors recommend that students average 8 hours of sleep per night or else you become drowsy and emotional.

According to www.nationwidechildrens.org, studies show that teenagers need exactly 9 ¼ hours of sleep.

Possible solutions? :

According to www.nationwidechildrens.org, they recommend to maintain a regular sleep schedule. By doing this you will be able to wake up and sleep at the same time.

Another recommendation from www.nationwidecildrens.org, is to turn off televisions and computers. This will prevent sleeping problems because leaving them on will only keep you up all night from the bright light.
