Some teenagers say that a few hours are enough to rest every day. However, science has proven that teenagers need between eight and a half to ten hours of sleep in order to perform properly the next day. And that sleeping too few or too many hours can cause health problems such as obesity and depression. Therefore, it is important to take care of sleep habits throughout adolescence, because the quality of adult life depends in part on it.
