Nowadays, an entire diversity of pernicious factors that severely affecthuman body can be observed, such as, depletion of the environment, the rapidpace of modern life, malnutrition, constant stress and consistent disturbanceof the daily regime. These factors may induce one to feel depressed,emotionally unstable and cause overall health deterioration. Ever-changing lifecircumstances do not provide a modern individual with a full sense of whatcould help to alleviate this strain. Very often, due to a significant lack oftime, people tend to interfere with their sleep regime, which has a trulydetrimental effect on the body and its functioning.
The modern youth, students,in particular, are relatively unconscious about their health. That, in turn,may break down their sleep cycle, causing nervousness, lack of attention,irritation and continuous fatigue, whilst not even suspecting the reason forsuch inferior conditions. Scientific studies prove that sleep deprivation has asignificant impact on student’s efficiency and negative substantial decrementsbrought to their lifestyle and health. (Légeret al. 2006) Many students report onsleep disruption, as well as frequent use of recreational psychoactive drugs toshift their sleep cycle and raise alertness. Students who are classified aspoor-sleepers are also noticed with several physical and psychologicalproblems, stating that academic stress negatively impacted their sleep quality(Lund, Reider, Prichard, 2010).
For adolescents, sleep is an imperative part oflife. During sleep, all the essential information received during classes isabsorbed and processed by the brain that is why young adults need more physicalrest in order to effectively accomplish their daytime tasks. Therefore, it isessential for students to obtain energy from so-called short-term naps, helpingstudents to retain as much knowledge as possible during education encounters.
This paper is intended toaddress to the readers from education and health sectors. In order to analysethe stated problem, some desk research is to be conducted. The paper is basedon the primary and secondary sources found during research, giving a profoundinsight on the topic. The framework of the paper has an argumentative characterthat will enable to demonstrate the significance of the dispute and determinethe core methods for potential solution. The following paper outlines thedecisive causes and considerable consequences of sleep deprivation amongststudents, analysing how educational institutions are able to aid young adultsin order to enhance their interest in studies and overall academic performanceas, the encouragement of university and college policies along with studycurriculum that would reinforce the concept of adequate and healthy sleepregime, can have a profound positive impact on mental and physical health,learning dexterity, and general productivity of students.
