Michigan Students: Less Sleep-Deprived Than Any Other State
Only about 62% of Michigan high school students get enough sleep each night -- but that number is higher than any other state in the US.
March is National Sleep Awareness Month, so the website Brainly surveyed high school students (age 14-18) to find out how their sleep habits affect their schoolwork and stress levels. Nationally, about 78% of high school students report not getting enough sleep on a regular basis.
Some key findings in the study:
- 65% of students feel constantly tired or low energy.
- 43% of students say their homework assignments cut into nightly sleep time.
- 51% of students feel rushed or stressed in the mornings because they do not wake up with enough time to get ready and out the door before school.
- 79% of students say they’ve fallen asleep during class at least once this school year.
Brainly suggests having a dedicated, well-organized homework area in order for students to streamline the homework process and maximize time dedicated to sleep.
