Prioritizing Well-Being Through a Bedtime Routine
Let's Do This
With the school year in full swing, ensuring that your young person gets enough sleep is crucial. A restful night’s sleep helps children to maintain their overall health, improve focus, enhance memory, and foster better social interactions.
For school-aged children (5 – 18 years), it’s recommended that they get 10-11 hours of sleep each night. This can be challenging to do, especially if they participate in extracurricular activities such as sports or clubs. Motivate the young people in your life to prioritize their physical, emotional, and social well-being by setting a bedtime routine.
Share this information with your young person to let them know how important sleep is. Help them establish a bedtime routine by using the info on this list of Bedtime Dos and Don’ts.
