Your Holiday Vacation Sleep Patterns

Your Holiday Vacation Sleep Patterns
The holiday season is known for festive celebrations, gifts, great food, and fun. There are also a few days when many of us don’t have to go to work and most teens have a holiday vacation from school. If you are on a holiday break, how are you using your time? Maybe you are reviewing your school year to date, or planning your schedule and collecting the things you need for next year. You might have picked up some extra hours if you have a part-time job, or you are spending extra time with family and friends. There is also a chance you might be catching up on your sleep. That’s fine, just don’t overdo it on the naps.

I know you might be tired from year end tests and projects. I just don’t want you to miss out on holiday fun. It’s an absolute that catching up on your sleep is necessary, and you definitely need to take care of yourself. Sleep is often that revitalization we all need anytime of the year. However, if you find you are spending most of your holiday break napping, you might also find you are not getting very much accomplished. You could also find that too much sleep can make you grumpy, or totally discombobulated. You definitely do not want to miss any holiday parties or gatherings. Yes, I understand that many parties will start later in the evening and could run past midnight. However, if you keep this kind of schedule consistency throughout your break, you can quickly find yourself rundown. You might be thinking that you are young, full of life, full of fun and full of energy. That is true. It’s also true, that you are still growing. As much as you need fun, you also need good rest, not too little, not too much.

A drastic change to your sleep schedule can make it harder to get back on track after the holidays are over and the new year has begun. You should absolutely attend parties, celebrate with family and friends, and take those little power naps, just don’t sleep your days away!

I am wishing everyone a great holiday season. I hope your holidays are full of laughter and love.
