How much sleep do you get each night?

A good night's sleep may be your best way to improve your performance at school. 8 1/2 to 10 hours a night is what most teens need to function well.

"In adolescents, poor sleep quality is associated with depression, anxiety, inattention, conduct problems, drug and alcohol abuse and impaired cognitive function."

"A report from the Jan. 1, 2010 issue of the journal Sleep found a surprising link between the typically late bedtimes of teenagers and teen depression and suicide."

What keeps you from getting 8 to 10 hours per night?
