Teenagers 'to be given tips on making most of Silentnight beds'

Teenagers in Scotland with Silentnight beds and other places to sleep will soon be given tips on how to get high-quality shut-eye each night.

According to the BBC, a teaching pack created by Sleep Scotland will form the basis of the education.

In addition to highlighting some of the ways people can ensure they rest more easily, there will be advice on the benefits of getting great sleep.

Commenting on the importance of the scheme, Kate Pearce, principal teacher of guidance, at James Gillespie’s High School in Edinburgh, told the news source: “We see it especially at third year onwards. Pupils find it very difficult to get up in the morning, pupils find it very difficult to concentrate. Sleep is most definitely an issue.”

Fox News recently reported the opinions of Douglas Bradley, director at the Toronto Research Institute’s Sleep Research Laboratory, who said walking and physical exercise can be important in overcoming problems when nodding off.
