Need More Time? Sleep Less!

Evidence suggests that sleeping faster will lead to more hours spent productively.

Evidence suggests that sleeping faster will lead to more hours spent productively.

High school students have a lot to do, and there never seems to be enough time after school. Those few short hours from 3:30 to bedtime is just not enough to fit sports, studying, food, video games and whatever else there is to do.

A breakdown of the hours spent on each activity showed shocking results. Although the amount of time dedicated to school-related work, sports, eating and doom scrolling varies among students, one thing is constant. The main culprit hogging up time was always sleep.

A study by the World Health Association shows that outside of school hours, sleep is the most time-consuming activity for students. Experts suggest that it is possible to cut down on this time. (Helen Hao)

The World Health Association (WHA) recently ran a study on the productivity of teenagers. Productivity was defined as hours spent either “actively intaking or outputting information.” The type of information was not specified.

250,000 students were asked to record their number of hours spent productively.

Unfortunately, there was a negative correlation between hours sleeping and hours being productive.

In high school, effectiveness is key. As students get older, they learn to complete tasks such as homework, faster. Once one thing is complete, students can move on to the next.

If the same principle is applied to sleeping, students could be much more productive and have more time for other tasks. Thus, we must learn to sleep faster.

As with any skill, sleeping faster takes practice, and there’s no time like the present to start. Simply stay up another hour and see your productivity potential skyrocket.
