Youth have different internal clocks than adults. Youth feel sleepy later in the evening and sleep in longer. This makes getting up for school difficult.
Getting enough sleep improves your mood and makes managing anxiety and stress easier. More sleep helps with memory, concentration.
Youth need about 9 – 9.5 hr each night.
When you’re sleep deprived, you are as impaired as a drunk driver with a blood alcohol level of .08%!
