Health Tip: Help Your Teen Get Enough Sleep

Keep a regular schedule
(HealthDay News) -- Teens need plenty of sleep, about nine hours per night. That can be tough to achieve, but parents can help instill healthy sleep habits.
The Cleveland Clinic offers this advice:
Keep a regular bedtime and wake schedule every day, including weekends. Take a 30-minute nap in the early afternoon to boost energy. Get plenty of exercise, aiming for 30-to-60 minutes at least four days per week. Avoid foods and beverages containing caffeine in the evening, and abstain from drugs and alcohol. Have a healthy, light snack before bedtime to avoid going to bed hungry. Allow time before bed to wind down and relax. Create a clean, relaxing and comfortable bedroom environment.
