    10 Signs You Need More Sleep
    1. You're always hungry: Ghrelin, AKA the hunger hormone, increases when you're tired. So, You crave more sugar and fat. Sleep loss also messes with leptin, the satiety hormone, so it's harder to feel full.
    2. Weight gain: Not only do you overeat when you’re tired, but your metabolism slows down too.
    3. Your memory’s shot: When you’re tired, you pay less attention to what’s going on when trying to make a memory.
    4. You’re having trouble making decisions: Sleep deprivation can affect higher-level cognitive processing like problem solving or time management.

    9. Your skin isn’t looking good: A lack of sleep upsets your hormonal balance and elevates circulating estrogen levels, resulting in more breakouts. And the decrease in collagen may result in more wrinkles.
    10. You may fall asleep at the wheel: Nodding off is your body’s way of forcing you to get the rest you need. It’s called micro-sleep and it’s super dangerous when you’re driving.

  • Students should start school later+

    School should start later because when students wake up int the morning they feel so tired and stessed because study shows more the have the teenagers in the morning wake up stressed and tired and also that teenagers have more of a early on and off schedule and also teachers will be able to have the same reaction of a good day because they wake up way earlier then teens

  • Start later in the day

    It has been scientifically proven that schools starts too early. Teens need 8 to 10 hours of sleep to stay healthy and function properly. Buses can easily transport their kids to school and home from school. The schools are messing with teen's internal clocks. Schools should start later in the day.

  • Let Teens be Healthier and Happier!

    According to the research, it has shown that adolescents biological schedule is different from adults or children's. Adolescences needs to sleep from 9 - 11 hours. But, they're forced to get up early for school and it increases their risk of getting diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, stroke and also, it increases their risk of being naughtier because their brain is just working like a drunk person's mind due to lack of sleep. Make school later for them to make them a healthier and a better person in the future! :)

  • Start Time Later!

    School should start later, because many students are tired and are dragging along during the day. According to USA today, teens are most likely to stay up late and get up early, it's what our bodies are set up to do! Also, teachers would rather go in early and get their planning done, rather than staying after school and doing it then. So yes, school should start later.

  • First of all, I want to know how late we are saying.

    If we are saying that we should do it in the late afternoon, I say that we shouldn't do that late. You would have to worry about school the entire time, until it is time for school. You would then come to school stressed. Your brain is fatigued by the time it is two and/or three. Your brain is really passionate from seven to nine, more creative from nine to eleven, and from eleven to two is when your brain is best for hard tasks. To skip ahead, the best time to relax is from eight to ten. From all of this, your brain is more active in the morning than later at night. Remember, this is only for those who want it in the late afternoon. The person didn't specify what time it would start later. I like the time we are doing right now.

  • No later time start! It's too stressful for everyone

    They shouldn't start school early because then it would be difficult for parents to drop of their child before work and will have to find child care. There would also be less free time for children because of later school start time. Kids would probably have to go to sleep at 12 to get all activities done.
