I plan on emailing sleep expert Dr. Lisa Shives about sleep. She is a graduate from University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and currently helps 4,000 patients with sleep. I will ask her what are the best sleeping habits to have, why do people still feel tired during the day, and what is sleep?
Genetics contribute to the likelyhood of one getting schizophrenia. Many family studies have been done and the results showed that the risk of schizophrenia is higher with the patients relatives than others in the general public.”Studies using operational diagnostic criteria and meticulously collected control samples have found that ﬁ rst-degree relatives have 3 – 15% risk of developing schizophrenia, while relatives of healthy controls have 0.5 – 1% risk (5)” (http://web.ebscohost.com).
According to the Division of sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical school, your body manages and requires sleep in much the same way that it regulates the need for eating, drinking, and breathing. Many people now and days with the rush in life and so many stress, studies show that sleep plays a vital role in promoting physical health, and emotional as well. That’s why now and days people need a strict schedule because the more steady your sleep is the more relax you will be.
Dieting. The claimed to be the best thing to lose weight. But what about all the "yo-yo" diets, and diets that are so incredibly bad for your body? In my opinion dieting is a failure and healthy living is your best bet to lose weight and be happy with your body. So what are the main components of being healthy? Well, you start with three pretty broad topics, for what I've learned over my lifetime I have made the conclusion that to be healthy you need between 8-10 hours of sleep a night, to exercise at least 5 days a week, and eat healthy.
Why does school start so early? Teachers, parents, and other adults are constantly preaching the benefits of a good night's sleep, yet us high schoolers stay up late doing homework, then have to get up before dawn to get to school on time! Research shows that once you reach adolescence, your sleep schedule changes. You stay up later, and sleep in. And children tend to go to bed earlier, and wake up earlier. Yet elementary schools often start up to an hour and a half later than high schools (at least in my personal, limited experience).
Since I was young, the importance of sleep has been preached in many different ways such as health and p.e. classes. Now, as a teenager, and especially as a high school athlete, I can certainly see why. However, I also see many people who perform just fine without it. 4a.m.My own father goes to sleep at around 11p.m., wakes up at 4a.m., and is a very successful businessman. My brother interned at Bank Of America this summer and said that many times the interns were forced to stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning and then wake up 4-5 hours later and get back to work.
So i read an article from time magazine, it was about why we crave fast food. I learned that if you are tired and want fast food its your bodies way of trying to get you to wake up. It is trying to intake more calories quickly to wake you up. The article also mentioned that if you get enough sleep each night you are more likely to want to eat healthier and are more likely to turn down junk food. Because sleepy brains associate junk food with happiness and pleasure. http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/06/11/why-you-crave-junk-food-when-youre-s...
There are many theories as to why paralysis happens. In many folklores, people claim that these sleep paralysis's are demons that try eat your soul and such. Some say the cure to this is to recite the Quran or the bible (depending the religion the person is). I personally have experienced this plenty of times and I think I have come to a conclusion as to why these paralysis's happens.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been coffee and how it affects us in both negative and positive ways. I remember my mom and father always telling me not to drink too much coffee at such a young age and always getting on my case, but I never really paid it much mind due to the fact I always do the exact opposite of what they say. However, since I love coffee and I drink it so often I want to know what it actually does, and how it can affect humans physically and mentally.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been people having a hard time sleeping at night. I remember my fifth grade teacher talking about it in class but I was having some difficulties understanding it. Lately, this issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people feel that sleeping is important and it shouldn’t be taken away from them. From what I heard people are having problems sleeping because of the responsibilities they have to do and there just too tired to do anything.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been The Teenage Mind. I remember my mother and I talking about it during an argument, but since I didn’t have anybody backing me up on my thoughts I wasn’t sure if I was right. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people think that the teenage mind is complex. From what I have heard, the average teenager goes through different stages within its mind. For example, I heard that there’s a "rebellion" stage where the teen is at its own mind of state, and wants to do everything.
I enjoyed Emma Young's essay, "The I In Dreaming," from: Young, Emma. "The I In Dreaming." New Scientist 209.2803 (2011): 36-39. Academic Search Premier. Web. 7 Mar. 2012. I liked it because I have been interested in how dreams can affect your real life and what they mean, when you sleep.
Something that I have been interested in learning has been sleep. My question overall has been How much sleep do we really need. I remember talking with one of my teachers and explaining with them that I would go to school and don't have the energy I need to proceed my day. They suggested to me that I get more sleep and see how that worked. I heard that good sleeping habits can sometimes pay off. Sometimes a good night sleep can lead to energetic productive day. Without enough sleep you might have a long draggy day.
According to NASA, the perfect nap is 26 minutes. The number is a bit odd, but according to scientists, this nap can relieve stress, lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, help concentration, and make people more alert. A short nap of 26 minutes, helped air traffic controllers perform 34% better, and raised their alertness by 54%.
Dr. Gonzalo Arboleda says that naps like this are beneficial to adults, but essential to kids and the elderly. A nap this short, will allow people to be more alert, and more healthy, but it won't effect their sleep at night.
With school back upon us students, we must face the fact that it is time to drop the video-games and christmas left-overs and trade them in for books and cafeteria food. If that's not enough, we must also get used to waking up at 6:00 a.m instead of sleeping however long you desired. Many parents simply say suck it up, but it is not that simple. in a survey of 3,000 high school students, it was found that those students receiving D's and F's were found to be sleeping 40 minutes later than those receiving A's and B's.
Throughout this year I have been exploring different photo taking skills as well as different Photoshop techniques. This being my final piece I think I have come a long way. In the beginning I took pictures of outfits that I liked. Since then, my theme has evolved into something more. Instead of taking pictures of outfits I liked, I tried to figure out who my subjects were based on what they were wearing.
