National Sleep Awareness Week is March 5-11. If you are a parent, student, teacher or school leader, start now to experiment with practices that will restore balance to student schedules and encourage healthy sleep.
Studies show that only 8% of teens get the recommended 9 hours of sleep they need each night. Nearly 70% receive 7 hours or less.
Yet consistent, quality sleep is directly linked to better physical and mental health, lower caffeine use, improved attention and memory skills and enhanced learning and academic performance among students.
