Starting school only 10 minutes later, can help teens get more sleep.

A study out of Brock University found at least one-third of high school students aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep.

Brock Assistant Professor Karen Patte says sleep deficiency increases the risk of lower academic achievement, poor mental health and even substance abuse.

The research shows pushing classes 10 minutes later, can give teens almost half an hour more sleep.

The study looked at data from nearly 50 schools across the province and tested different start times to see optimal sleep benefits.


  1. I simply needed to say thanks again. I am not sure what I could possibly have used without the type of ways shared by you over this field. Entirely was a real fearsome difficulty for me personally, however , discovering a specialized avenue you treated that made me to cry over fulfillment. I will be happy for the guidance and as well , expect you are aware of a great job your are doing training the rest via a web site. Probably you haven’t encountered any of us.
