  1. Getting Adequate Sleep

YOUTH

It is said that sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important brain activity and body functions occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful, making you look bad, feel moody, or perform poorly. Sleepiness can make you find it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on the court, on the field, or on school exams. Remember that a brain which is hungry for sleep will get it.

Facts:

  • Sleep is as important to your well-being as the air to breathe, the water to drink, and the food to eat.
  • Teens need from 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night to function best and the fact is that most teens do not get enough sleep.
  • Teens tend to stay up late and sleep in late on the weekends, hurting the quality of their sleep and badly affecting their biological clocks.
  • Many teens suffer from treatable sleep disorders like insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, or restless legs syndrome.
