Most experts recommend that adolescents and young adults get 8-10 hours of sleep a night in order to feel well rested and alert. This might seem like a lot, but by instilling a few simple habits, you can program yourself to get the much-needed sleep you require.
When you’re juggling school, work, family, friends and a personal life, sleep can sometimes take a back seat. Research shows that most adolescents and young adults don’t get nearly enough sleep due to heavy demands on their schedule. You or your friends may often describe yourselves as “tired” or “sleepy”. However, maintaining healthy and regular sleep habits can help you be your best self and give you the fuel you need to manage your schedule well and the many different aspects of your life. Getting more sleep helps you get more done when you are awake.
