Assignment #3: Introduction
Sleep is defined as a natural condition that helps the body’s muscles to relax. The movements of the body are less relaxed and the feeling of the environment is a kind of change of consciousness, not a loss, a natural phenomenon that is periodically performed to stimulate the brain and the vital processes that occur in the human body (Kleitman, 1963).

Studies have found that those who do not have enough sleep from teenagers often have health problems physical and psychological. In addition, high risk of road accidents and a decline in educational performance, but it has become increasingly difficult for adolescents to get enough sleep, as their biological clock is programmed to sleep after 11 PM. On the other hand, why do not adolescents get enough sleep? There are many reasons for the lack of sleep among adolescents, between school assignments, extracurricular activities, the work of some students after the end of school hours, and to using technology that keeps them awake all night such as television and smart phones. Siesta and caffeine may be one of the reasons that reduce the number of hours of sleep in teenagers!
