A Wake-Up Call About Sleep

Did you know that American teenagers are among the sleepiest people in the world? It's probably not news to you, but asking a high-school student to absorb and understand facts and figures at 7:00 a.m. is like asking their parents to function at work at 3:00 a.m. It's not that you're lazy when you can't get up in the morning. It's totally the fault of the circadian rhythm of your biological clock.

I sleep just fine. I go to bed at nine and fall asleep within 10 minutes and get up at around 6:30 a.m. and am only sleepless when someone close to me dies or something or if i'm sick.I'll get up like 5x.
