Sleep, along with water are the two things we as Americans are needing the most of. How many times have you said to a friend, "if I could just take a nap", only to have them nod their heads in total agreement. Why are we sleep deprived? It could be we don't know when we need to go to bed. Well we have your bedtime answer right here.

The old adage about eight hours is still a good rule of thumb. Most kids, teenagers especially, really need more than eight straight hours to function normally.

The interesting thing I discovered after putting this calculator to the test for several days now is just how accurate it is. We've all had those days where we slept forever and wake up feeling more tired than normal haven't we. Most of us have also experienced a short night of sleep but still we function and feel refreshed.

It is all about the sleep cycle and waking up at the end of it. Try the sleepytime calculator out and see if you don't wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. Just remember that when you do wake up, you'll want to make sure you are waking up with us on the Bruce and the Kennel Club Show on 97.3 The Dawg!
