Developing a Sleep Routine: Why Sleep is Important

As we finish out the school year, we are looking forward to all the progress our scholars will make this semester. We are continuously dedicated to preparing our students for their future goals, empowering them to become interested learners, independent thinkers, and well-rounded individuals.

Did you know that insufficient sleep is associated with lower academic achievement and higher absenteeism in students of all ages? We may not realize it but resting plays a critical role in overall student success! Check out these tips to help maintain a healthy sleep routine:

  • Set an alarm on your phone as a reminder of when you should begin winding down. Keep in mind that the optimal amount of sleep for most younger children is 10-12 hours per night while adolescents (13-18 years of age) are in the range of 8-10 hours per night.
  • Prioritize self-care by choosing a routine of relaxation that you can stay consistent with every night. While settling down, consider taking a warm bath/shower, reading, journaling, or practicing some deep breathing exercises.
  • Get in the habit of turning off electronic devices an hour before bedtime. By eliminating distractions, you should be able to fall asleep more quickly.

The most important part of keeping a schedule for yourself is staying consistent with your efforts. Give it a try and let us know all the changes you see!
