Why teenagers can't get out of bed - they need more sunshine

Why teenagers can't get out of bed - they need more sunshine

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 4:11 AM on 18th February 2010



A lack of sun is disturbing the sleeping patterns of young people, research has found

Teenagers who sleep in are not lazy, they are just not getting enough sunlight in the morning, scientists say.

Adolescents spend too much time indoors and a lack of natural blue light, particularly in the morning, upsets their body clock.

Natural light is required to produce the hormone melatonin, which signals when it is time to sleep.

Researchers believe a lack of melatonin makes teenagers go to bed later. This in turn, makes them unlikely to rise early the next day.

The disturbance to sleeping patterns was also causing teenagers to struggle at school because they are too tired to concentrate. The study was conducted by America's Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lighting Research Centre.

Dr Mariana Figueiro, who led the study, said: 'These morning-light deprived teenagers are going to bed later, getting less sleep and possibly under-performing on standardised tests. We are calling this the teenage night owl syndrome.'

Dr Figueiro said school timetables meant students had to start early so they were likely to miss morning light.

'They are often travelling to school before the sun is up or as it's just rising,' she said.

Re: Why teenagers can't get out of bed - they need more sunshine

Its hard to get sunlight when we're in classrooms for most of the day, and in canteens during break time. I doubt the little bit of sunlight we get from the windows help much.

Thus, it is therefore to get more sunshine during recess time.

Sleep early, wake up early. Don't be a night owl.

In this way, you confirm can get out of bed, like me.

Re: Why teenagers can't get out of bed - they need more sunshine

hmm.. somehow when i started working, even with similar conditions whereby i am working indoors for 8 hours, i find it easy to wake up. thou i also do sleep early as well since work isn't as forgiving on lateness as school is. i also find waking up to sunlight is easier than waking up to pitch blackness. maybe students are just waking up way too early for school?
