Transcript of Get Some Sleep!

"Most people do not know how much sleep is needed and place themselves and sometimes others at risk for medical problems and increased risk for injuries or fatal accidents" (Gregory 1).

"The finding that sleep deprivation increases energy expenditure should not be interpreted that sleep deprivation is a safe or effective strategy for weight loss as other studies have shown that chronic sleep deprivation is associated with impaired cognition and weight gain" (Jung 235).
..but, there is a solution!
According to the Mayo Clinic, students should be getting 9-11 hours of sleep per night, adults should be getting 7-8 hours per night.
What are the benefits?
"The results are of high clinical relevance as they show that adolescents obtaining sufficient and/or good sleep show nearly no daytime functioning problems" (Dewald-Kaufmann 1).

"Sleep extension can improve declarative memory in adolescents" (Lucassen 2).
