The Importance of Sleep
Sleep is very important. Do you know why sleep is important to teenagers? The reason sleep is important for adolescents in the growing age is the recovery of body rhythms due to the vigorous activity of hormones. Growth hormones are mostly secreted during the night, as regular and sufficient sleep plays a role in helping secretion of growth hormones by normalizing unstable or unbalanced biorhythm. This prevents the growth of adolescents from deteriorating and nurturing the growth of children growing up.
Also, insufficient sleep and unstable sleep conditions in adolescents impedes the secretion of growth hormone and eventually ceases growth. This leads to a smaller physique that is below average, and having a taller or body smaller than your peers leads to a lack of confidence. The person may suffer feelings of inferiority, which can develop into a more serious complex when they reach adulthood.
Another problem is that due to lack of sleep, fatigue accumulates and causes grades to fall, or it can also reduce brain activity in the midst of studying. In addition, patience is also lacking, making it emotionally easily intensifying, reducing the ability to curb impulses.
Finally, sleep deprivation interferes with the creation and maintenance of new memories, and studies have shown that when this situation is old, memory drops and interferes with learning ability. Lack of sleep can also affect thinking and judgment by decreasing the function of the frontal lobe.
So when and how much should I sleep? It is recommended to be asleep deeply between 12p.m. and 5a.m. when hormonal secretion is vigorous. A teenager needs to get 8 to 9 hours of sleep. It is important to get enough sleep to prevent these problems from happening. Also, enough sleep is necessary for the mental and physical health of adolescents.
