    Sleep

    How much sleep are you all getting? It is actually recommended that teenagers should be getting 9-10 hours of sleep everyday! Pretty crazy given how busy everyone is (especially during HSC period and year 12 in general). Nonetheless, sleep is really critical for brain and body development during adolescence, and yet I know many people, including myself in the past, sacrifice a lot of sleep during high school.

    Sleep deprivation is pretty much an epidemic at this point, and it's leading to number of physical and mental health issues that students are struggling with everyday. I'm really trying to bring awareness to this issue so i made this little infographic


    But yeah tell me, are you getting enough sleep? If not, what's the cause of it? Are you feeling any of the above symptoms?

    We're getting more and more sleep deprived and it's time to start discussing it and taking it seriously. Feel free to check out my blog for even more stuff

    Re: Sleep

    i live next to a train track this semester and freight trains wake me up at 5am. I usually get back to sleep for another 1-1.5 hours after this.

    also I struggle to fall asleep before midnight so yeah my sleep is fucked

    Sorry to here about that freight train, that really sucks since that would basically be waking you up at the most critical and important part of the sleep cycle. Do you feel any of the symptoms in my infographic?

    Funny you mention struggling to fall asleep before midnight. That's actually a major issue for teenagers because puberty shifts your body clock a couple hours forward. It delays the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone, so you don't feel sleepy until a lot later at night. The result is that a large majority of teenagers are sleep deprived

    Surprisingly good responses overall in this thread though. Pleasantly shocked to see there's a lot of people getting around 8 hours of sleep and going to sleep before midnight. You're doing your body a great service, this age group needs sleep more than any other age group in existence. It really is essential for body and brain development.

    I got a lot of headaches too when I am about to wake up.

    Study shows that lack of sleeping leads you faster to death.

    That's a shame. Good to see your immunity is going strong though, that's personally something that's improved dramatically as I've changed my sleep schedule. I use to get sick all the time.

    That's a shame, getting adequate hours of sleep can really tough for students. What exactly is keeping you up at night? Are you experiencing any symptoms in this infographic ?

    Has anyone seen this article? Pretty scary stuff
