How Much Sleep do Teenagers Need?

Sleep is an essential part of everyone's life, and teenagers are no exception. According to the National Sleep Foundation, teenagers between the ages of 14-17 years old need between 8-10 hours of sleep per night.

Sleep is where much of their repair and growth happens! And there is a lot of growth during these years!

However, many teenagers do not get the recommended amount of sleep due to the demands of school, extracurricular activities, and social obligations.

Lack of sleep can have negative consequences on a teenager's health, including mood swings, difficulty concentrating, and decreased academic performance.

Encouraging healthy sleep habits, such as establishing a consistent sleep schedule and avoiding electronic devices before bedtime, can help ensure that teenagers get the rest they need to live healthy, happy lives.

Yes, I know they won’t like it.... but it’s a fact!
