Rest/Relaxation and importance of sleep

Reason For Learning

While adequate sleep is certainly a necessity for those of all ages, teenagers have particularly high sleep requirements. One reason for this is that teenagers are growing, and it is during sleep that testosterone and other growth-promoting hormones are produced. Another reason is that teenagers on average are more physically active than any other demographic, and thus must sleep more. Unfortunately, according to the National Sleep Foundation, less than 15 percent of teenagers get at least 8 1/2 hours of sleep each night, while the recommended amount is 9 1/4 hours.

Learning Intention

To understand the importance of adequate sleep and the effects of inadequate sleep on our bodies.
