For my new cycle, I'm exploring into a new question which is Why do we have trouble sleeping? I don't know anything much about this topic yet, so I'm going to be starting from the beginning. An idea I came up with is I want to uncover some myths about sleeping, so in my opening paragraph for each research round I'm going to briefly touch on a different sleeping myth. Hopefully at the end of my research, I will have 5 myths to uncover in my sixth research round. Now without a father of due I'm going to explain my project plan!
Research Round 1
It may seem a bit off topic, but in order to fully answer my question, I think I need to explore what sleeping really is and why do we need it. So for my first round I wish to investigate:
- What is sleeping and how it varies for different ages
- Why do we need sleep?
- What happens to our body and mind when we sleep?
Research Round 2
During this round of research, my plan is to look into serious medical conditions that cause people not to sleep, and with each medical condition I research, I want to have symptoms and ways to try and fix them.
The main conditions are:
Insomnia, Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy
Research Round 3
In this round of research, I'm going to explain some reasons behind sleeping issues, not medical issues but how stress, anxiety and depression can prevent people from sleeping. Also, I want to define the difference between stress issues which result in not sleeping verses medical issues.
Research Round 4
I think there are a lot of ways to help people to sleep and too many to cover in just one research round, so the fourth round of research is going to be ways to help you sleep part one. In this particular round, I'm going to dig into dieting like how unhealthy food choices and skipping meals can have an affect on sleeping. Not only am I going to address the problem, I want to also give options and ideas in how to fix it.
Research Round 5
For my second research on how to help people with sleeping, I will investigate daily routines and how certain things can help you sleep. For example, how being on an electronic device before bed can be distracting and how having a daily sleeping routine can help sleeping.
Research Round 6
Lastly, I will uncover all the myths I briefly talked about in each of my research rounds before!
