Sleep

Here are some of the facts the students have heard on the announcements about our first focus of the year: sleep

  • Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health and well-being of your mind and body. Sleep is important for the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal, muscular systems, and all other body systems.

  • In general, exercising regularly makes it easier to fall asleep and contributes to sounder sleep. However, exercising sporadically or right before going to bed will make falling asleep more difficult.

  • In general, most healthy adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a night. However, some individuals are able to function without sleepiness or drowsiness after as little as six hours of sleep. Others can’t perform at their peak unless they’ve slept ten hours.

  • We naturally feel tired at two different times of the day: about 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM. It is this natural dip in alertness that is primarily responsible for the post-lunch dip.

  • Newborns sleep a total of 14 to 17 hours a day on an irregular schedule with periods of one to three hours spent awake.
