PhysOrg.com reports on research from Emek Yezreel College in Israel that proves that teenagers should sleep late for success:
…[D]uring the first week, the experimental class woke up 51 minutes later on average than the control class, while during the second week, the experimental and the control class woke up at the same time. Bedtime and sleep efficiency remained the same during both weeks.
…[S]aid Dr. Tzischinsky: “The results demonstrate that longer sleep duration positively affects cognitive functioning.”
Which I suppose we all know instinctively. I’d think of something witty to put here, but I’m feeling kind of sleepy myself.
