Students Say They’re Sleeping Less During Pandemic | NBC Nightly News


  • I am sleeping more cuz i dont go to school 😂😂

  • That's because my students normally do their sleeping in class at school...

  • Their hooked on there computer or cell phones that's all they do lack of exercise

    • online student here. just wanted to say - unless you want us to unplug from any other relationship we have besides our immediate family and maybe our neighbors, we're not gonna stop using our devices. and we're losing sleep from the overwhelming amount of homework, not from the only things that keep us sane during lockdown.

  • Also avoid caffiene late in the day

  • Unless you cannot sleep enough

  • 30-60 mins before sleep avoid your electronic devices

  • Talk to me when u get 3-4 hours....

  • $$-To better understand the Truth about Vaccination Programs read, “This Is A Bio-Attack Alert”, by Dr. Robert B Strecker a Medical Doctor with a PhD In Pharmacology who said, “There Is No Proof Any Vaccines Cure Anything”.

  • Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so That we all make it to heaven, Like so more people can see this..

  • I would agree for those who are worrying about their parent's job, but the rest is BS.

  • not true, my child is actually able to get extra sleep time without the commute to and from school

  • Teens who have class go to bed 🛌 10:30 - 11pm & get up between 4:30 - 6am.

    • That's normal adults do it all the time gotta wake up early for work .get used to it and and stay off the internet .

  • I keep hearing on the news how kids/students miss school and now not getting enough sleep. Idk where they are finding these kids but i've asked my kids ages 9-17yrs and they do not want to go back to school. every time we get a notice saying they may go back them and there friends are like "Noooooooooooo" and honestly i would have been the same way when i was a kid.

  • "Students Say They’re Sleeping Less During (Covid) Pandemic" thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica. Thus, we're hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the #UKvariant strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian & #Cluster5Mink mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

  • Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted". Matthew 23 NIV You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land." And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search. These are the teachings, The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God. REPENT, and start doing what is right. If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. In the New Heaven and New Earth, only Righteousness dwells. May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.


  • Everyone: students need sleep Schools: I'm gonna pretend I didn't see that

    • @Spycrab No Why????? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

    • @Skyveiwray Z no

    • Stop listening to the news Oh my God 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

  • I haven't slept in 4 days....

    • This world is crazy with the virus 🦠 And I’m literally tired of wearing mask 😷 and online school 🏫 is Not the same as it use to be 2 or 3 years ago life is just terrible right now times like this!!!! Man

  • That... is relatable...


  • Parents are the main one waking us up 6:30/7:30 on a Saturday morning

    • Why in Saturday Though 🤨🤨🤨

  • I can agree with them, I have gotten less sleep.

    • Com on Just sleep when ever you want Stop listening to people just stop watching the news 🗞 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

  • I like this.

  • Easy fix stop being on the phone and go to sleep. White people problems 🤣

  • Lol who cares its not an issue to be reported by the news

    • @Kevin LaTorre It does 💯💯

    • @Skyveiwray Z watching the news these days is like watching Seinfeld

    • Exactly People need To Stop listening to the news Stop Believe in the news Stop like for real

  • Even as a grad student, i only sleep 5 hours everyday. Stress is getting to everyone.

  • There's less communication and minimum structure.

  • These kids need more sleep.

  • It’s enough for teenagers

    • Lmao what? Teens need at least 9 hours of sleep

  • Put down the devices. Wussies.

  • STAY OFF THE PHONEs 📱 !!!!!!!

  • LoL my sleep has stayed the same. 😅

  • imagine being a staff member being up at 4/5 am to get to work for 7am classes as well. No thanks. (early start schools are stupid)

  • Everytime I feel so sleepless at night, I'm like an owl that plays video games and doing online work.

  • “Kids need more sleep”......” we should start school earlier so they will get more sleep, yep that makes sence”

    • @Aislyn Erdman She said, "extra time." She's referring to the schools decision to move start time from 7:45 to 8:30.

    • @kxmode no not that part 2:02

    • What are you talking about? The report says the school moved the start time from 7:45 to 8:30.

  • Wow...wait until they get into the adult world.

    • Yes, they're feeling the same thing as adults bc adults also can't sleep at night because of anxiety and depression from the pandemic and being poor. The difference is the lack of sleep for a teen stunts their growth and adults don't have to worry about that.

  • It's hard to sleep with constant worrying and anxiety about bills, finances and food. Especially with the loneliness of the pandemic. Things that people are used to doing to be able to cope they can't do anymore. Everything is so impersonal now through video chat and zoom. People are just emotionally burnt out im working two jobs and still struggling.

  • I never sleep anymore.
