Sleeping During School…I say YES!

Hello everyone, hope your day is going well. I recently ran into an article from a local news station here who shared a story that interested me.

Apparently there is a high school in New Mexico that is allowed their students to take 20 minute naps in between classes. Some people may think this is a bad idea, but I believe it’s a good idea, let me tell you why!

I graduated high school in 2011, and I tell you I didn’t sleep all that well most of the time. If they had this available to me, I’d probably have been more rested and have done better in my classes. They say teens should get anywhere from 8-10 hours of sleep every night. I never got that much sleep…I still don’t! I take naps all the time now during the day and it has helped me a lot. 

Before you judge it, think of the good things that could come of this. It can help students with anxiety maybe not feel so anxious. In high school if I could take a small nap before taking a test, I’d probably have done a lot better. Especially when it came to math. 

If you’re interested, check out the original article I read below.
