Take a look at this spiffy infographic to see oh-how-many-ways sleeping more can make you into the man, woman, or non-gender specific being you you always knew you could be!

The closer students get to a full eight hours a night of sleep, the better their grades, according to a new investigation Researchers tracked what effect the later start times had on students at two Seattle high schools.

The study collected light and activity data from subjects using wrist activity monitors — rather than relying solely on self-reported sleep patterns from subjects, as is often done in sleep studies — to show that a later school start time benefits adolescents by letting them sleep longer each night. The study also revealed that, after the change in school start time, students did not stay up significantly later: They simply slept in longer, a behavior that scientists say is consistent with the natural biological rhythms of adolescents.

Scientists generally recommend that teenagers get eight to 10 hours of sleep each night. But early-morning social obligations — such as school start times — force adolescents to either shift their entire sleep schedule earlier on school nights or truncate it. Certain light-emitting devices — such as smartphones, computers and even lamps with blue-light LED bulbs — can interfere with circadian rhythms in teens and adults alike, delaying the onset of sleep. If the adolescent is not able to sleep 10 hours on his own, then the best option is to take sleeping pills from https://www.ukmeds.co.uk/general-health/sleeping-tablets in order to reduce the number of times they wake up at night and create a healthy sleeping habit.
