As National Public Radio (NPR) added to the discussion on the growing grass-roots campaign advocating for later high school start times, Amy Wolfson, professor of psychology at the College of the Holy Cross, named five strategies to help teenagers sleep longer and better. These included keeping regular sleep and study schedules, and eliminating caffeine and technology before bedtime.
The NPR segment expounded upon Wolfson’s recommendation that students try to get “8 1/2 – 9 1/2 hours of sleep a night,” adding that waking up at 6 a.m. for an early school start time can lead to a pattern of sleep deprivation which can lead to a range of problems from depression to auto accidents.
