According to a recent research of the Oxford University we should revise our work and school scheduling plan!
As reported by Paul Kelly from Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute of Oxford, our society is involved in a serious time of sleep-crisis, a critical situation caused by the lack of a proper sleep. Find out more in this article!
Forcing People to Wake Up Too Early in the Morning is Counterproductive!
Young people between 14 and 24 years old are those who have more risk to suffer insomnia that, as we well know, has negative effects on our organism and our health.
More Productive After 10 A.M.!
The experiment involved about 100 schools and colleges across the UK: Depending on age of the students, it was set up a precise scheduling program of classes.
For children up to 10 years, the bell rang at 8:30, while the students up to 16 at 10:00 a.m., around 11:00 a.m. for college students.
The improvement of their performances seems to support the thesis of the British scientist.
Why Should We Sleep More in the Morning?
Also according to the study of the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute the circadian rhythm is strictly connected to the age: Up to 10 years old our biological clock is set on 6 a.m., but getting older this special clock moves forward almost 2 hours! For this reason in adulthood the alarm clock should be set at 8 a.m. and people should start working at 10 a.m..
Our internal clock moves back again around 50, re-synchronizing itself with the rhythms of a 10 years old child.
