According to the article “But I’m Not Tired,” by Alice Parker, the article states “Many kids ages 10 to 12 years old only get 7 - 8 hours of sleep.” Schools need to adapt their start time and end time. Schools also need to adapt after school activities. Class time should be at least 40 to 50 minutes long. Studies have show that 7 hours of sleep is minimum requirement hours of sleep per night. Studies have also shown that 46% of nights, students sleep less than 7 hours. Studies also have shown that sleep is vital to humans well-being, as important than the air humans breathe.
One of the most common and high risk disorders among college students is sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation is when one does not obtain the full amount of sleep that is required for the body to function properly. Young adults need about six to eight hours of sleep in order to function properly, but some college students do not get to sleep the full six to eight hours in one sleep session. There has been a wide range of concern on whether or not people are performing at their highest potential in their day to day lives or if that performance is somehow interrupted due to this insufficient sleep. Buboltz, Brown and Soper (2001) found that trouble waking up in the morning, taking more than thirty minutes to fall asleep, and daytime sleepiness were more of the common types of sleep difficulties. Due to inadequate sleep students get during the night, they tend to take naps in the middle of the day (Ye, Johnson, Keane, Manasia, & Gregas, 2015). Most college students often surrender their sleep during the week, and make up for it by sleeping longer on the weekends (Pilcher & Walters, 1997), but they actually do not get more sleep.
Adolescents and adults need around 9 hours of sleep daily (De Souza 5). Since schools are starting so early, they can not get the needed sleep time, eight to nine hours. Even though teachers go to school the same time as students, consequences are worse in students and it seems to have more of a critical effect on students. No matter if it is a student or a teacher, the quality of sleep is very important for everybody.
Audience Relevance: Many of us are college students and young adults who are lacking sleep each night. It is not healthy to receive less than the amount we are supposed to each night. Each night, we are supposed to be getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep.
Most people joke around about how important sleep is and they say things like: “If I don’t sleep right now I might die!”. But many people don’t know how true that statement can be or how important sleep really is. The amount of sleep you get is important and how much sleep you need varies depending on your age. Even naps can help people that have unusual sleeping schedules. Sleeping and napping give you the energy you need to go through the day, but over sleeping or napping can make you even more tired than you were before. Sleeping and napping is a very important thing you need to do to be healthy, to have enough energy to go through the day, and help you be more focused throughout the day.
Should students have to choose between sleep deprivation and academics? How many hours of sleep does an average student need? How is the average student supposed to participate in sports, have quality family time, have an after school job and do homework and be in bed by 9:00 p.m. High School students should have later starting times in order to have a balanced life and 9 hours of undisturbed sleep every day of the week. Three key factor why a later start time is important is because of health issues, and after school activities.
Many people are uneducated when it comes to recommendations on how much sleep said individual needs every night. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep each night, while teens need nine to ten hours each night, if you're younger than number increases to 10 or more hours each night. But, this is hard for
A major key to maximize growth and development in high school students is to acquire satisfying rest each night. The proper amount of sleep for the average teenager is 9 ½ hours; however, studies have shown that only about 15% of high school students get more than 8 ½ hours of sleep on a school night. For example, the average start time for high schools in the United States is before 8:30am, so a viable wake time is
Sleep is a glorified free trial version of death; we don't have to commit to dying just yet. We lie on our warm, cozy queen mattresses motionless for a few hours, while our head rests on the doughy white pillows, our muscles are paralyzed and our breathing is unconsciously monitored through our brain. A scary dream pops out of nowhere, flashbacks of our past come spiraling in our memory, we get to witness movies starring ourselves as the protagonist and surviving in different scenarios. Anywhere from two to ten hours of sleep could just kill our past and make us forget about yesterday. Or we can sleep to relieve the pain or sleep to prepare ourselves for the next day. “ Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.” These are wise words said from Mahatma Gandhi; the most peaceful non violent icon that lead India to its independence from British rule. If Gandhi swore by some serious shut-eye to lead his peaceful protests then there’s no reason for you to not keep pressing snooze on your iPhone alarm clock to go tackle your day, peaceful or not. Sleep is more than just snoozing away on a king size mattress with the blanket tucked in and the fan turned on. Sleep is unique and catered to each person differently.
According to research by Brown University, Rhode Island, at least 11 percent of students report good sleep. On the other hand, 73 percent of students were found to have sleep problems. At least 30 percent of college women and 18 percent of college men reported that they suffered from (some form of) insomnia over the past 3 months. On an interesting note, another online survey found that many students ‘crash’ on the weekends, sleeping more than 8 hours. 72 percent of students were found to sleep 8 to 9 hours on weekends, while 28 percent sleep more than 10 hours on weekends. A larger study pool found a more accurate look into how college students handle sleep. Conducted by the American College Health Association in 2010, the survey gathered as much as 95,712
I observed from my time management calendar that I typically go to sleep around 1 o’clock in the morning, usually due to studying or homework. Since I wake up around 7 o’clock, I get approximately six hours of sleep nighty. The average amount
Attention Getter: Did you know 40% of Americans or (100 million people) are moderately to severely sleep-deprived? Students in college are among the most sleep deprived out of them all. According to the (National Sleep Foundation 2011) 60% of college students are not rested during the day and 30% fall asleep in class at least once a week. The National Sleep Foundation also implies that adults 18 and older are supposed to sleep on average 7-9 hours each night.
Here's what my typical week looks like for this semester. On Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday night I typically go to sleep between 11-12pm. I tend to feel more rested during the next day. This is largely due to that fact that I do not have to wake up until 8:40am. My normal routine these nights is that I get off my electronics no later than 11:30, then I read or write until I go to sleep, which is no later than 12:30am, though normally earlier. Which means I typically get between 8-9 hours of sleep these nights.
Get enough sleep. Eight hours of sleep is always recommended. In fact, a Harvard study found out that those who get less than seven hours of sleep are risking themselves to get a heart attack. The lack of sleep increases stress hormones which raises your blood pressure and affects your blood sugar levels. However, do not oversleep as well. Those people who sleep nine or more hours are also at an increased risk to develop heart attack.
One of the things that all humans have in common is sleep. On average, a person spends 25 years, or 9,125 days, asleep. While we sleep our bodies go into a somewhat paralyzed like state, but the brain always remains active. In the form of dreams our brains can alert, entertain, or even terrify. Just like every human sleeps, every human dreams, even when you think you don’t, you do. One common misconjunction is that all dreams fall under one category, but in reality we have many different types of dreams that our subconscious uses to relay messages and images. Such as signal dreams, prophetic dreams, healing dreams, recurring dreams, nightmares, daydreams, epic dreams, and lucid dreams. But today I will be focusing mainly on the final four.
