Snoozing in Class? Find Out Why During National Sleep Awareness Week

Students, are you feeling drowsy? Yawning or nodding off during class? You may not be getting enough sleep!

On average, teens need 9.25 hours of sleep each night. How much sleep have you been getting lately? Without proper, restful sleep, many health and mental problems can occur, including sleep disorders, forgetfulness, aggressiveness and a run-down immune system. Take time during National Sleep Awareness Week (March 7-13) to discover ways to improve your sleep habits.
