Want your kids to do better in school? It seems the key might be a good night’s sleep! A recent study by McGill University and the Douglas Mental Health University Institute reveals that children who get a good night’s sleep have improved grades and performance in school. But, it’s not just the length of sleep that your kids are getting but also the efficiency of their sleep. Sleep efficiency is basically the amount of time you’re in bed compared to the amount of time you’re actually sleeping. Sleep that is short or broken is often an overlooked factor in poor grades and behavioral challenges, especially in children. Although sleep matters for all areas of academics, researchers note that it’s especially important in subjects like math and language. The National Sleep Foundation recommends ten to eleven hours of sleep per night for children aged five to twelve. For teenagers, the recommendation is at least nine hours of sleep. To make sure that your child is getting an adequate amount of sleep, talk to your pediatrician.
Sleep also matters when you’re an adult! Getting enough sleep is associated with weight loss, motivation, and smarter choices. Sleep is essential for healthy brain activity, learning, stress control, problem solving, and attention span. By making a plan to get more sleep, you’ll be doing yourself a favor. Make sure that your bedroom is sleep friendly by limiting electronic and lighting. Use blackouts shades or an eye mask and if your house is noisy earphones or earplugs can come in handy. Another big no-no when it comes to sleep is taking your e-reader to bed or watching television to fall asleep. These electronics give off light that can disrupt your natural sleep cycle and create distractions.
Believe it or not, what you wear to bed and how comfortable you are while sleeping can also affect your sleep. Being too hot or too cold can wake you up in the middle of the night as can feeling restricted in uncomfortable material. Luckly, there’s an easy fix for all these problems!
