Inquiry Question: Is Sleep Really that Important?
We all know that sleep is essential for living. Everyone has to sleep in order to avoid effects of sleep deprivation like fatigue, irritability and mood changes. In the now, I don’t feel like I have been getting a lot of sleep. I have been known to stay up ’till 2 in the morning due to procrastination. Especially since I have choir at 7am on Mondays and Thursdays, which means I have to wake up at 6 in the morning to get ready for school, it is not the most ideal to sleep that late. My parents constantly remind me to sleep earlier so that I can maintain a healthy body, but does that really matter if I am still able to maintain 8-10 hours of sleep?
You can hear it anywhere, that sleep is very important, but where is the proof, the evidence? My inquiry project is going to be all about that. Hopefully we can all learn new things about sleep and the importance of sleeping early, so that we feel more motivated to sleep at an earlier time.
