Hele na, tulog na

Kids tulog na

KELANGAN pa bang i-memorize yan?

You may probably react this way as you read on.

Today, I reiterate parents’ growing concern for lack of sleep among their children. Sa dami ng pinagkakaabalahan ng mga bata ngayon, nagkukulang sila sa tulog.

I know of parents who complain about their children spending long hours on the computer or cell phone. Dahil dito, napupuyat sila at late magising kinabukasan. Karaniwang irritable pa.

There are more advantages than disadvantages when we get a good night sleep, according to http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20459221_11,00.html)

• You can be more productive.

Waking up knowing that you’ve got enough sleep can help a person focus better.

The mind is more relaxed and you’re less likely to get lethargic.

• A longer life?

Yes, it doesn’t necessarily directly translate into more years but multiple studies have suggested that better sleeping cycles can lead to healthier lives.

• You’re probably going to look better.

Well, sleeping doesn’t change your face or its features but the tendency after a good night’s sleep is a fresher and brighter look. You’ll look livelier and more energized.

• It can help you lose weight.

For those of you who are thinking of shedding some of those pounds, you should also consider taking better care of your sleeping schedule. Metabolism works better when you’re at rest and that means your body is more likely going to burn more calories.

• Your mood will generally be better.

Tiredness affects the way you go about your day. It’s a significant factor when you wake up knowing that you’re just not in the mood to go out or do something, it makes you more irritable.
