Sleep Issue

What is Sleep Issue?

Body's intrinsic sleep clock is often reset during the teen years, causing individuals to sleep later and wake up later. The reason for this transition is that teen brains produce melatonin later in the evening than that happens with children and adults. Teenagers therefore struggle to fall asleep. The delay in the sleep-wake cycle can occasionally be so severe that it interferes with a person's everyday activities. It is known as "night owl" syndrome or delayed sleep phase syndrome in those circumstances.
