Sleep deprivation

Going to bed late, having trouble getting up in the morning and sleeping in as long as possible on weekends. Everyone knows that from their youth. During adolescence, the body releases the sleep hormone melatonin at an increasingly later time. That is why an adolescent has no sleep at all in the evening and has difficulty falling asleep. Unfortunately for him, the body needs a lot of sleep during this phase. Adolescents need about 9 hours of sleep per night. They rarely get there. They fall asleep late and have to go to school early. That can sometimes get a young person into trouble. He can develop a chronic sleep deprivation, which can have a major impact on his behavior. In any case, adolescence is characterized by strong mood swings. His academic performance can also suffer. Lack of sleep also makes it more difficult to remember or manipulate new information.
