Hey, Lifebabblers, rise and shine!
Whether you're up at the crack of dawn or can't get enough
of your duvet, we're talking sleep and how important it is.
I love sleeping.
Cos you get to relax, snuggle your favourite teddy bear,
and then wake up the next morning feeling nice and refreshed.
Sleep refreshes my brain.
Sleep is the best.
Especially when I get the right amount.
It makes me feel happier and healthier.
A weekend snooze in a warm bed is the best.
I love sleep and find it easy to get up. I'm always the first one.
I sneak down and make myself breakfast,
but I always wake up my family as I make too much noise.
When we sleep, our bodies rest and prepare for the next day.
Sleep also gives our brains a chance to sort things out,
like store information and solve problems.
We all have a body clock in our brains.
It remembers our daily routine.
Break the routine and our brains don't know
when we'll next get sleep or the next time we'll eat.
Having a routine and getting enough sleep is important
so that we can be well and healthy.
Lack of sleep makes me very grumpy.
When I don't get enough sleep,
I'm not determined to do things and my work rate completely goes down.
Getting up absolutely sucks!
I have a lack of concentration in class, which is bad.
I just don't know why I can't get to sleep.
SCREAMING FROM TELEVISION
I find it hard to get to sleep as my room is right next
to my two sisters'. I can hear them both through the walls.
My younger sister is very fidgety
when she opens and closes the drawers and dances on her bed.
Sometimes, I get two pillows,
cover them over my ears and wait until the noise has stopped.
Not getting enough sleep can really affect us all.
-It can affect your mood.
It can affect the way you look, like getting more spots.
Or it can affect your health and your energy levels.
So, make sure you're not only getting enough sleep,
but that it's good, uninterrupted and regular.
Here's some tips to help with your sleep.
Make sure you're doing enough exercise to tire yourself out.
Set a no-screen rule an hour before bed.
Try reading a book instead.
Got things buzzing in your head? Keep a diary.
Imagine your diary as a dumping ground to get all the rubbish
out of your head from your day.
It makes space in your brain for sweet dreams.
If something is really troubling you and keeping you awake,
talk about it with someone that you trust.
