Here we list some common causes of teen sleep disorders:
1. Hormonal Time Shift:
Sometimes, certain puberty hormones modify your teen’s sleep cycle by an hour or two and can lead to oversleeping for one or two hours. However, early morning classes or school affects her sleep and can cause chronic sleep deprivation.
2. Hectic After-School Activities:
Various after-school activities, such as sports, part-time work, homework, and social commitments, cut down a teen’s sleeping time and often lead to sleep disorder.
3. Leisure Activities:
Spending time at night watching television, surfing the web, playing computer games, and chatting can keep her awake for hours. Various leisure activities can hamper a teen’s sleep substantially.
4. Light Exposure:
Light ray cues the human brain to be awake. At night, lights from television, computers, laptops, and mobile devices prevent sufficient production of melatonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain, which handles sleep.
5. Sleep Problems:
Certain sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, can adversely affect your teen’s sleep.
