Re: Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hey everyone, I think this being cool,i like the votes that i have viewed and they really encourage.Especially for us in this youth age we should sleep less,because the warmer the blanket the colder the future.Although it this one sometimes get tired for waking early but as long us you have your objective you are motivated by it. This is very upsetting .

Hey everyone, i appreciate all who have supported this question, its quite challenging knowing that in some part of the world there are others who have enough time to relaxed their body and able to complete their work, but all in all we do appreciate the time we had been given because we are able to achieve our goals.

Thanks for the survey.It is quite much involving.

Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Lauren Jang (Charles Best) ·
I would encourage everyone to take my survey because I assume most teenagers don't get enough sleep on a daily basis. Hopefully, I'm correct but there's only one way to know for sure and that is to make a survey! So here it is, please feel free to take it whenever, and it should only take you a couple minutes. Thank you, I really appreciate it!

Project Plan - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Lauren Jang (Charles Best) ·
Hello, 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...

Lauren Jang (Charles Best) ·
Hello everyone, It feels like it's been a long time since I last posted, but I will be posting every 2 weeks now with posts that are a little bit longer. For my first research round, I will be examining What is sleeping?, Why do we need sleep? and How many hours of sleep do we need for various ages? Before I get right into my round of research I must do a myth. Myth #1 Your brain rests during sleep. False: The body rests during sleep, not the brain. The brain remains active, gets recharged,...

There are a ton of different theories of what dreams are and what their purpose is, but none of these theories have conclusive evidence. It would be interesting for you to look into dreaming if you are interested by this subject.

Hey everyone, This week I plan to talk about the different medical issues that revolve around sleep. I plan to focus on three main conditions: Insomnia, Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy. For each medical condition, I would like to uncover each issue, find symptoms and find a way to fix the condition or find a way for people to live with it.

I found this completely fascinating to be honest. I know very little about dreams so it was great to read into them. I thought you did a really wonderful job describing the complex way dreams work in a really simple way that made sense. Also I was wondering if you'd looked into sleep paralysis? This is a phenomenon in which, after waking, you continue to dream and for moments are unable to move. I don't know much about it, but it sounds really interesting. I'm very excited to see where you...

LOVE THIS SUBJECT!!! I did a project on this a while ago, but I only scraped the surface of this subject. There are so many things to look into, do you have a certain focus for you project or are you just going to see how much information you can collect? Like Emma Irvine I have found sleep paralysis to be an especially interesting subject, as well as other sleeping disorders, I think it would be cool I you wanted to look into those. Very excited for your project .

Mental illness may affect sleep so much,in that someone with mental problem will tend to sleep anytime,most of the people who are mentally sick will sleep during the day and tend to be active during the day,which I guess they get to train themselves,in Kenya for instance mental people may be seen along the road at day time deep asleep and be seen active during the night which really can't figure out why.

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

I really like this project, the part that got me thinking was the last part, the question "how does mental illness affect sleep". I decided to look into this and I found something really interesting, something Ive never thought of or even imagine, ( the main idea of butterfly effect ). Mental illness and sleep are two interconnected topics, a change in one has an effect on the other. Both of them can mutually affect one another. For example, if you don't have enough sleep, you are most...

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

This is a very interesting project to research! If you wanted to, you could also look at the mental illnesses that have to do with sleep. There are some conditions where people under high stress have vivid nightmares about family and friends. They can be so real that the person does not want to go to sleep. It usually happens in girls. Anyways, keep up the good researching.

Hey Lauren! This is a great question! Plenty of people now have trouble sleeping with or without knowing it! This seems like a sound plan you got there, very well planned out. Something you might want to look into is what i've read something about "the phone's blueness light at night" (so electronics) can affect your brain because it...disturbs brainwaves and stuff.

Re: Project Plan - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hi Lauren, I'm impressed by your well-structured project plan. This is a great topic to share since a lot of us are teens who tend to avoid proper sleep. Something else you could look into is "what causes sleep disorders in kids with disabilities". Autism is a very common disability in our population and presents parents with unique challenges when it comes to ensuring they get proper sleep. http://www.webmd.com/brain/aut...-good-nights-sleep#1 Looking forward to your next post!

Re: Project Plan - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hello Lauren I think sleep is a very important part in our lives.Think of this: what if we did not have resting moments? we take a sleep in order to refresh our minds and to also make the body active again for another work.For what i believe is that sleep varies with age.For a baby she get to have a deep sleep than an adult. very much interesting. Good luck in your research.

Re: Research Round 1 - Cycle 4 - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hey Lauren! This is super interesting research and it's super relevant to highschoolers! One thing I've heard about and found really cool is sleep cycles. It is believed that in order to wake up and not feel tired, one must complete a full sleep cycle. Sleep cycles take approximately 90 minutes, so instead of taking a 1-hour nap, you should take a 1.5 hour nap; or instead of sleeping for 8 hours, you should sleep for 9 to complete your sleep cycle. Here's a link with more information:...

Hey Lauren! As I've grown up, the importance of sleep and drinking water could not have been stressed enough! I'm curious to know how lacking sleeping can affect things such as your metabolism, mental health and other organs in your body! If so, how do these effects differ between boys and girls? Also, are naps beneficial? Do they add hours to your sleep cycle? Love your idea and this research round, Keep itup

Re: Research Round 1 - Cycle 4 - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

This is a super interesting topic! Most teens don't get the recommended number of hours of sleep a night. I personally get around 7 hours a sleep a night, which is pretty good compared to some of my friends. Some of my friends get 5-6 hours of sleep a night, which is very low. I think this is because of school. We're usually up super late working on homework and studying. You could maybe make s survey about how many hours of sleep people get and why. This might help with your project! I'm...

Hey Lauren, You are right in that not enough people get the amount of sleep that they need. It would be interesting to see a survey that asks that so that you can compare the percentage of people who get the recommended amount of sleep with those who get more or less. Just an idea. Ben Laird.

Hi Lauren This is a really fascinating topic and I was surprised that your brain continues to function while we sleep. I noticed that you talked about how many hours people SHOULD get of sleep depending on their age. But is this true? I suggest you do a survey and find out how many hours people really have a sleep, maybe how it impacts their lifestyle, and then compare it with the statistics and perhaps give suggestions to how we can improve this habit. Good luck!

Re: Research Round 1 - Cycle 4 - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hi Lauren, This is a really interesting topic because sleep is something that affects all of us. It affects us when we have too little and it affects us when we get the right amount. I found it interesting when you mentioned that our brain discards the facts that we don't think are important. Perhaps, you can elaborate on this topic. For example, how does your brain decide which information is important? Does it have to do with your level of consciousness when you receive the information?

Re: Research Round 1 - Cycle 4 - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hey Lauren, Great job! When you mentioned the recommended amount of sleep, I thought of people I know as they always complain about getting less than 6 hours...I think doing a survey would be really interesting; finding out how many hours people sleep on average then asking how they feel their functionality is. You could then make a relation to amount of sleep = level of mental awareness. Good luck!

Re: Inquiry Question - Why Do We Have Trouble Sleeping?

Hey Lauren, I believe that this is going to be a very compelling cycle! Some suggestions for your research could be the following: Looking at certain age ranges and see if there are common sleeping trouble reasons for the age range. Is melatonin the solution to help troubles with sleeping? What does stress/depression do to your sleeping? Does exercise help to vanish troubles with sleeping? Could it be the position you sleep in the root to sleeping difficulties? Looking forward to your research!!

How do Dreams Affect People?

What is REM sleep? Sleep is a big part of everyone's lives, and REM is very important. Dreams are stories and images that our mind creates while sleeping. Most dreams occur during REM sleep. We have about 4-6 dreams per night. Although they seem very long, they might only be minutes or even seconds. Most of the time we don't even remember our dreams. It is said that dreams are important for mental, emotional and physical health. Others say that dreams are useless. A experiment was done where...

Re: How do Sleeping Disorders Affect peoples Dreaming?

I never knew that's why I don't remember my dreams! That makes a lot of sense now that I think about. Usually when I get a good nights sleep, it's harder to recall my dreams.
