Hard Lesson in Sleep for Teenagers

Hard Lesson in Sleep for Teenagers | Judaism, Jewish Teens, and Today's World | Scoop.it

A quote that I liked from this blog was, “Sleep is not optional. It’s a health imperative, like eating, breathing and physical activity,” Dr. Judith A. Owens



Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 27, 3:40 AM

"Researchers report that the average adolescent needs eight and a half to nine and a half hours of sleep each night. But in a poll taken in 2006 by the National Sleep Foundation, less than 20 percent reported getting that much rest on school nights."
