In 2010, an article was produced by phys.org writer, Sylviane Duval. She wrote that around 8 percent of high schoolers get enough rest at night.

In 2014 WMBF News reported that researchers from the University of Alabama studied students and found that around 60 percent of college students are not getting enough sleep.

Time management:

Let’s put aside our professional procrastinating ways and schedule our days. Buy a cute planner and get to scheduling.

“Be a a river, not a flood.” One of my favorite teachers, Dr. Tim Elmore, use to say this phrase to my leadership team in high school. This quote just means, don’t spread yourself too thin.

This year, let’s refrain from joining every sport and club at school. Pick that one sport and two clubs that you enjoy this year. The goal is to have enough time for homework and sleep.

Cheers to a restful school year!
