Alex Beuerle-Sleep

I chose this issue because I think sleep is very important for humans to keep on working without loosing energy. I am connected to this issue because I do not think I get enough sleep. I wake up at 5:30 A.M every day and I am also very tired so I think that is my body telling me that I need to sleep more. This issue of sleep is relevant to me because at my age I should be getting 10-11 hours of sleep each night but currently I only get 8.5 hours. Sleep Is a way your body recharges itself. Without sleep you would have a limited ability to learn and grow. It can also lead to aggressive or inappropriate behaviors. It is important that we get a lot of sleep because without it we would be unable to do then things we need to do.

I learned that sleep is actually very important. That if we don’t sleep enough we could just stop functioning. I also learned that we need about 10.5 hours for the ages of 13-14. My thinking of this issue is that sleep is way more important than we think it is. Millions of teens around the world get only 3/4 of the sleep they need. Sleep is probably one of the most blown off issues for kids our age.I used to think that sleep was a little important and that we needed about 9 hours, but after doing research on it I found out that sleep is way more important than I thought and that we need about 10.5 hours of sleep each night.
