I am doing a research paper on teens doing too much and I myself am having the same issue. I am an eighth grader in California and I am in advanced classes and I have been losing sleep due to mass amounts of homework and participating in multiple activities. I seem to have no time to just relax and be a kid. I stay up until 11 PM most nights finishing work and have had to stay up until 1:15 AM before. I only receive about 6-7 hours of sleep every night. I don’t procrastinate and am a pretty quick worker. I have also been getting pretty severe headaches frequently and I read that it is a cause of not sleeping enough. I am also having a much harder time concentrating. Do you have any tips because I am really just done with being tired and not being able to perform up to my full potential.?
hey im in 8th grade and im doing a project about this. uhm okay i sleep really late like around 5 am. then wake up at 7 for school. im doing a project on this cause maybe on my way of doing it i can realize something very important that im missing! at school i just start acting lazy meaning not wanting to do my school work and getting behind my clsses. and im not usaully that kind of person i use to get all my things done in time but now everything is falling apart! so i was wondering if sleeping is affecting my daily acedemics and routines in my life? ...
