Particularly for students heading to middle school or high school, the homework assignments become tougher, workloads get heavier and staying ahead of the curve becomes more of a challenge. A planner can help your child keep everything organized. Students should write down assignments, appointments and to-do lists, then review items in the planner at both the beginning and end of the day to stay on track. By middle school and high school, most teachers will provide a course outline or syllabus, which can serve as a guide for the semester.
Medical conditions are slow to develop and have multiple risk factors connected to them. What we do know is that sleeping fewer than about eight hours per night on a regular basis seems to increase the risk of developing a number of medical conditions. The study results below show that reducing sleep by just two or three hours per night can have dramatic health consequences.
Obesity—Several studies have linked insufficient sleep and weight gain. For example, one study found that people who slept fewer than six hours per night on a regular basis were much more likely to have excess body weight, while people who slept an average of eight hours per night had the lowest relative body fat of the study group.
Sleep deprivation increases the levels of many inflammatory mediators, and infections in turn affect the amount and patterns of sleep. Common Cold — In a recent study, people who averaged less than seven hours of sleep a night were about three times more likely to develop cold symptoms than study volunteers who got eight or more hours of sleep when exposed to the cold-causing rhinovirus.
In addition, those individuals who got better quality sleep were the least likely to come down with a cold. More importantly, insufficient sleep can ultimately affect life expectancy and day-to-day well-being.
An analysis of data from three separate studies suggests that sleeping five or fewer hours per night may increase mortality risk by as much as 15 percent. Rogers discusses the relationship between sleep deprivation, weight gain, and diabetes.We did that.
