Bedtime is easily the best part of my day. I'm cuddled up with a few big blankets and my one super cozy pillow and I could just lay there forever. I'm sure most people would agree with me on this matter.

Bedtime is a tricky thing though as it has tons of variables accompanied with it. We really never consider the sciences of falling asleep. For your body to maintain good health and reenergize, it needs at least 8 hours of sleep at night. This means, for instance, if you have to wake up at 7:30 every morning for school, you should be in bed at least by 11:30. This time can seem outrageous or perfectly normal depending on who you are.

Maybe you like to stay up all hours of the night, blogging about your life achievements! Perhaps you are resting up for a marathon and could use all the sleep you can get! Whatever the case, school should definitely be a priority when it comes to sleeping! Statistics show that students achieve higher in school and get more out of it when they are fully rested and prepared for the day ahead.

So next time you are considering watching Grease at 11:00 PM on a Wednesday night (or whatever your reasoning or plans may be) think ahead! If you have a 12 minute run in gym class first thing tomorrow, maybe young John Travolta can wait for the weekend or a better time.

Do you think you are getting enough sleep at night for school? Do you think sleep has anything to do with school? Feel free to answer any of these questions in the discussion board below or pose some of your own questions. Whatever suits your fancy! Sweet dreams!
