Young people need about eight to nine hours of sleep every night to make it good and easy at school, college or at work. Normally, young people sleep for six to seven hours on an average at night. This means that many young people have a sleep loss of two hours each and every night. For the last fifteen years, the number of hours of sleep among youth has decreased by about one hour per night.
About fifteen to sixteen years ago, young people slept for 7.5 hours and now they are said to sleep for 6.5 hours only. Today, many young people are trying to sleep at weekends. When the weekend comes, it is very common for young people to sleep out. This means that they get up late in the morning. When the weekend comes to an end and the weekdays begin, they all go round the clock.
For example, when you get up early in the morning, you may not feel tired or exhausted till the next day evening. At the same time, this will be a bad practice since on Monday morning you will be tired, unplanned and confused for the day ahead. To get up on Monday morning, after just a few hours of sleep in the previous night will be tiring and a bad start to a new week.
Being dull and tired when getting up in the early morning is really a pain in the neck, so to say. In addition, it is harmful for our health too. In recent years there has been a lot of research on sleep. Earlier, it was thought that sleep was essential because the body needed to rest. But now, it turns out that sleep is important for a lot of other things than just for rest.
