March 11-17 is National Sleep Awareness Week
The A, B, ZZZs for Students
Children and adolescents who do not get enough sleep have a higher risk of obesity, diabetes, injuries, poor mental health, and problems with attention and behavior.
Some habits that can improve your sleep health:
*Be consistent. Go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, including on the weekends
*Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, relaxing, and at a comfortable temperature
*Remove electronic devices, such as TVs, computers, and smartphones, from the bedroom
*Avoid large meals, caffeine, and alcohol before bedtime
*Get some exercise. Being physically active during the day can help you fall asleep more easily at night.
