We spent a few weeks in health class learning about sleep and how it plays a bigger part in our life that we give it credit for. We learned that it can affect our emotions, our academic performance and how we go on with our daily life's. This article shows how studies affect the lives of college students because they are showing how they are gaining weight due to the fact of lack of sleep. While both the amount of sleep and the lateness of bedtime may have played a role, the researchers in the Brown study identified a new sleep factor for predicting weight gain. The studies show that they are averaging about 7.25 hours of sleep when they should be getting 9.25.
