Ask your mommy and she will tell you that you should have at least 8 hours. Actually 11:00 is not late. Do you sleep too late in the morning? Try getting up earlier and doing some household chores to make yourself use some energy that will tire you.

when i was your age, hmm, i don't really remember, but you'll need at least 8hrs(what they say), but really the best way to know that is to time your sleep.let's say set an alarm for 8hrs total tonight, and then if you wake up feeling alert the next day and not tired, then that's a good number of hours for you. it varies from time to time. does it give you problems staying up til 11pm the next day? like feeling sleepy in the afternoon or feeling tired, or headaches? always try your best to sleep and wake up the same times everyday. EXERCISE by staying active in sports or other extracurricular activities. it will help you get more energy and also stay alert and healthy.

to sleep right away, i usually feel sleepy when i do things i don't enjoy doing so much like reading history, or really long, black and white print pages. avoid doing stuff that you'll get hooked in, something like i'll-stay-up-til-i-get-tired kind of deals, like doing homework you'd really like to finish coz u like the subject (math sometimes for me), or internet browsing and PSP, if you're into that. Don't exercise before going to bed. You'll just get more quasi caffeinated (sugar rush kinda thing). SO, bottomline, if you want to sleep NOW coz it's 10.30pm, stay in your room and read some Shakespeare laying down coz that'll make u sleepy (works for me even just picking up the book). relax your mind. wait, are you thinking of your crush that's why you have hard time sleeping? Don't then. read something long and winding, not love stories..ok! not harry potter coz i stay up for that as long as i could..heehee

8-9 hours. Depends on what time you usually have to wake up. As you turn 16-18, you only need to sleep 7-8 hours.


They Love to Hate me
You need to get a good 8hrs, in order to funtion well. I am the same way I can't go to bed until late, I don't know what it is. If you are the type of person that goes to bed at 12am then gets up at 6am and it works for you then hey it just works for you. If you go to bed at 12am and have trouble getting up...then you need to force yourself to get up really, really early one morning and stay awake all day (that means no falling asleep in study hall, or after school) Try to stay awake all day.........6am to 10pm trust me you will be tried, just keep yourself really busy and it will work if you do this for a couple days you will be getting to sleep at a decent time every night!!! Good Luck

around 8-11 hours. you're probably being way to active at night.sometimes right before i go to bed i watch the spanish channel i fall right asleep cause i don't know what they are saying.


Corey <3
when i was 12.5 i had the same problem! i just couldn't get to sleep. So i went to the doctor and he prescribed me this medicine- it was called rozerm or something like that.

now i dont need it any more, but it really did help!

i think most young-teenage girls need like 8 hours of sleep. but with school and everything thats hard!!


jayellison01
You need to make sure you are not drinking caffeine hours before you go to bed. This is a stimulant and could be the difference. Try taking a hot shower or bath and getting into some clean cool clothes. Drink a hot cup of tea ( decaffienated ) Or maybe some nyquil ( but dont over do it ) And don't catnap during the day !

For ur age 8 hours is sufficient for a good nights rest.


Luv2dance
women are supposed to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. i am the same age as u r and i find that i need 9-10


dxfan45
Well this may seem weird, but what makes me sleepy is playing Tetris. I'm 13 too and you should be getting 9-10 hours of sleep.

it should be like 6-8 hours of sleep...

try drinking warm milk before bed, or doing something strenuous like 2 hours before you go to bed (like exercising)

i usually listen to my ipod


Alex
Go onto WebMd.Com You can find out ways to help you sleep and how much sleep is needed. I'd stop caffeine and sugars 4-5 hours before bed. Try milk, according to Dr. Oz on Oprah the other day, milk does help you sleep. Check Oprah's site for the latest Dr. Oz thing. Try a hot bath? Turn off all noise? Good luck to ya.


onlyonelife419
i have never got much sleep and i know what u mean...if you can go all day and function on what ur getting then thats what u need...everyone is diff. so if its working for you and your not over tired then go with it..if u are over tired try to ware yourself out before bed if that doesn't work as to go to the doctor u may have insomnia


person
you should be getting AT LEAST 7 hours of sleep per night.


Loserface
You should ask your parents if you can take some advil nightime pills at night for a couple of days around 9:00pm. Than go excatly to bed. After awhile, your body should get use to this time, and you will not need pills to falls asleep.

You should be getting at least 8-10 hours of sleep.

on average, people are supposed to have at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night but often times that doesnt happen. try changing your eating habits, like not eating after a certain time or try a nice relaxing activity like reading before bed. that way you will be in a calm state and should sleep easier. sweet dreams

They say you are supposed to get 8 hours of sleep, no matter how old you are, I have the same problem (I go to bed at about 10-10:30 but I don't fall asleep until about 11:30-12 and I wake up at 6:30 to get ready for school). So I obviously don't get enough sleep, all I can say is thank God for weekends.


Pathism
around 7-9hrs. teenager or children nids more sleep than adults. maybe u can try 2 listen 2 some classical music while sleeping. it helps,i think,for my case when i cant get 2 sleep i listen 2 some music 2 calm my nerves down n get 2 sleep.


kratos2009
you suppose to get 8 hours asleep i would lisaten to soft music maybe some mozrt or beethoven


lbear
you should be getting 8 to 9 hours or even more.

you should be getting 8-10 hours of sleep. try doing some form of physical activity before bed or maybe eating a good meal. also, ask you parents but some people use a supplement called melatonin to help regulate their sleep cycle. you may want to ask a pharmacist or a doctor about these things just to make sure everything is alright with you.


TILI
u need 8 or 9hrs if its a big problem see a doctor and dont drink too much pop

you should be getting on average 8 a day, and maybe you can't sleep because your too worried about not being able to sleep, so stop worrying about it.


phataway.com
The only thing that works for me is when I eat a big breakfast and light lunch and dinner - if you eat too late and not active enough, the body digests like four hours so you won't be able to fall asleep

8. Any less, and it will catch up to you. You will be tired and want to nap if you don't get 8 hours of sleep.

You are still growing so you should be getting at least 8 or 9 hours a night. I always had a hard time sleeping too, especially when I was your age. It is tough being a teenager and shutting your mind off and relaxing enough to go to sleep. Try to go to bed a bit earlier. No caffeine before bed ( pop, chocolate,coffee or tea) As hard as it is, try not to watch TV before bed. Experts will say you should reserve your bedroom for sleeping, so try to watch TV in the living room and do your homework at the kitchen table for a week and see if that helps. I find a bath before bed helps. If you lay in bed awake for more than 20 mins, get up and walk around a bit, have a light snack or read, then try to sleep again. Something stressing about not sleeping makes it worse. Most importantly- try to relax and not stress and worry so much.
