Sleep Habits & Learning
The following article is a recap from Dr. Brugnoli's talk on Bob Soos Radio ShowAir/Podcast 4/2/18
New research study by the University of California, Berkeley says that there are between links bad grades and poor sleep habits. Bad grades are proven to be tied to early class times that push the sleep cycle out of sync.
High school & college students with early morning classes require 7-9 hours of sleep to be ready for learning.
Younger children between the ages of 6-13 require 9-11 hours of sleep.
Poor sleep contributes to poor learning and poor learning can lead to additional problems. Poor sleep habits have also been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, depression, etc.
Parents need to encourage early bed times. Removing mobile phones, tablets & electronics from the bedroom is a must!
