Your body, after repetitive procedures, will start to get used to them even if you aren't thinking it. In high school I began developing the nasty habit of falling asleep during 5th period. Every day. Almost the entire period. It came to be my happy time but it also reflected negatively on my work. Well obviously, you were asleep the whole time! Anyways, second quarter I transferred to a different class. Guess what? Fell asleep everyday. Second semester rolls by and I purposely change my 5th period to P.E. but come 6th period I would fall asleep. Everyday. My second year of high school rolls around and I get machine woods for my 5th period, the most easy-going class that year. Probably because I slept in that class everyday. 50 minute naps that I would look forward to everyday, and my body had become so accustomed to them that I would come in dead tired, go to sleep, and I would wake up everyday exactly 5 minutes before the bell. The next year was the same and I always felt drowsy during 5th period. Every day was a struggle because the class actually took work! I would purposely ask the teacher for bathroom breaks just to splash water on my face. Then senior year came and I thought I was smart. I elected to take a zero period in order to avoid 5th period and go home after 4th. It didn't work, I still felt drowsy everyday. It's as if my body knew how much class time I could power through before feeling tired. And by the time I came home I

    Wednesday, March 9 is when I started my sleep deprivation experiment. I wanted to see how long I could keep my body awake and how my lack of sleep would affect my mood and my everyday interaction with people. In my opinion, it went better than expected. Usually I get very emotional when I am tired to the point where just my feet hurting is enough to make me cry. Given, that is usually after several nights of not getting enough sleep, going to bed late, and waking up early.…

    After receiving this assignment, the behavior that I knew I needed to change was my sleeping habits. Usually at night, I will stay up until 4 in the morning because I am either doing homework or messing around with my friends. Since I have to wake up at 8 in the morning for my classes, I only receive about 4 hours of sleep a night. This causes me to take a lot of naps during the day to make up for the missed hours. My roommate always complains that I need to stop sleeping during the day because she feels that she always needs to be quiet when really she should not have to.…

    To do this I would change the time school ended from 3:15 to something around 1:30 or 2 (Swifts class discussion). As a senior getting ready to leave high school this would no longer would affect me but it would definitely be great for students that have years left. Through my four years in high school I have had to stay in inside the school for around 7 hours a day and it is exhausting by the end of the day. Now that i 'm on my senior year I have most classes out of the day and can go home at around 1:30 instead of 3:15. Just that little bit of time has helped me feel more refreshed when i get home and i can get going on homework without feeling tired or like i 'm running out of time.…

    The biggest problem with the early start times is the disruption of the circadian rhythms of students. The circadian rhythm is a natural way for the body to keep time, repeating on a 24 or near 24 hour cycle. It regulates body temperature and hormonal changes but most notably sleep patterns and tends to be most affected by exposure to light, which can often lead to issues sleeping in people who use technology right before bed (Owens 3). A very common example of a disruption in circadian rhythm is jet lag, a disorder caused by when a person travels across multiple time zones. Their circadian rhythm is still stuck in their original time zone because it’s not the same time where they’re at as where their home is which is where their body still thinks they are.…

One of the most dreadful things I had to do was having to restart my sleeping cycle just so I could wake up in time to make it to school and having to wear an attire that is not suitable for early mornings.

    For example, when I got eight full hours of sleep on Sunday, September 18th I felt well rested and was able to concentrate well on my studying. On the other hand, when I only got five hours of sleep on Tuesday, September 20th I felt exhausted, frustrated, had little concentration and experienced terrible pain in my lower back. Some pros of this research were that it only required one person, only took five days and it did not require materials. While this experiment was manageable for me, I found that my experience matched the theory. One con of the research was the hindsight bias I experienced.…
