Sleep

As we get older our bodies and brains change and adapt. The amount of sleep that you need may be different to those around you. Things you do such as drink coffee, stay out later or play computer games late at night all affect how you sleep.

It is important to listen to your body. If you're finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning, it may be you need to change your sleep routine. Most young people find they need between 8 to 10 hours sleep to feel healthy.  

Getting better sleep can have lots of positive impacts on your life and your brain!  Good sleep helps with lots of different things:

  • Brain retention - good for memory and revision
  • Positive Mood - great for wellbeing
  • Appearance - clearer skin and healthy looking hair
