Arecent study, the results of which were reported in Behavioral Sleep Medicine, found a connection between adolescent sleep problems and risk-taking behaviors. Using the Sleep Habits Survey and the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, the researchers looked at 388 adolescents' sleep habits (males = 217, females = 171) on weekdays and weekends.
The results of the study showed no significant correlation between oversleeping on weekends and daytime functioning. The total amount of sleep during a school week and delayed bedtimes on weekends, however, were associated with daytime academic performance and risk-taking behavior. The research indicated that a regular sleep/wake cycle in adolescents and good sleep hygiene can help both adolescents' choices and their academic performance in school.
