7 Problems When You Don’t Get Enough Sleep
This means you can’t concentrate or learn properly during the school day.
You might be grumpy, more sensitive and more stressed than if you’d had a good night’s sleep.
You might also find it difficult to learn and start getting behind in your school work.
Being tired can make it really, really hard to remember things, which is not great if you’re preparing for exams!
You can feel really unmotivated and low in mood if you aren’t getting enough sleep at night.
You can’t react as quickly, which can lead to an increased risk of having accidents.
You drink more stimulant drinks such as coffee, tea and coke, which then makes it more difficult to sleep at night.
A tired brain is one that’s more likely to take a risk.
