Leep and Teenagers

Sleep plays a critical role for everyone, but especially for teenagers. It impacts their health, mental set, grades, and and doing well in sports. Studies have linked electronics with sleep deprivation. An increased amount of screen time throughout the day has been linked to insomnia and symptoms of depression in adolescents. This can include social messaging, web surfing, watching TV, and gaming, in addition to using the internet for schoolwork. The presence of electronic devices in the lives of human beings—teenagers and athletes included—is here to stay. Therefore, success strategies include understanding the important of sleep to performance and developing habits that provide the appropriate balance between sleep and wakefulness.
