A calender with the task of going to bed early on it.

As we live a stressful life that is filled with constant social media and phone alerts, work, studies, and a hectic schedule, getting enough sleep is essential for the correct functioning of all our systems. While one may get a false impression that there’s still some energy left and we can get things done, we are only exhausting ourselves! As an adult person needs at least 7 hours of sleep, it’s important to create a sleep routine and learn how to manage one’s time and sleep patterns.

Top 5 Sleep Routine Teaching Resources


  1. American Academy of Sleep Education (AASM).

One of the best resources that strive to educate people of all ages about the importance of sleep and the best ways to help both school and college students understand how they can improve their current sleep patterns. There are numerous books and diagrams that also focus on explanations for conditions like insomnia, or explain why taking the right position during certain heart conditions can help save lives. What makes this resource even more helpful is the presence of materials that will be accessible to younger learners, as every explanation is provided in a simple language with colorful graphics.


  1. Sleep Foundation (OneCare Media Company).

The most important section of this great resource is its Back to School Sleep Tips. It explains the importance of having a sleep schedule by including specific recommendations on how to take care of students that look anxious or sleepy. The sleep schedule templates for those situations when there was a holiday or summer break will be essential for educators who try to create and explain a good bedtime routine. Even if one explains and proves that sleep affects exam success, it will be sufficient to motivate both students and parents for positive changes.


  1. Teachers Pay Teachers: A Collection of Sleep Routines Literature.

What you have here is a collection of affordable books and research materials dealing with sleep routine rules, bad dreams, morning routines, social stories, higher education, homeschooling, adult education, and many other subjects. There are many filters to find and download exactly what you need. You can also enjoy the benefits of purchasing or downloading your books in PDF or any other format. There are also videos and audio recordings dealing with sleep tracking and the culture of healthy habits.

  1. Child Mind Institute.

Although this resource is not directly related to helping a child get better sleep per se, it takes an important interdisciplinary approach by providing helpful suggestions and explanations regarding conditions and background issues that affect the sleep routine among children and adolescents. Starting with the behavioral therapies method to validate fears and address the challenges of being brave, this resource will be helpful for educators who like to take a wider approach to the problem. The teachers or students majoring in Special Education classes will also find relevant information dealing with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, and other conditions where building sleep patterns is even more challenging.


  1. Teach Early Years.

This resource provides helpful information on creating correct sleep routines in the nursery via talking to parents and using encouragement and psychological support as a method. It also provides resources for primary and secondary school teachers. Regardless if you are an early years practitioner, an educator, or a parent, this website will provide you with the guidelines that clearly explain your role, talk about case studies, and show the most efficient solutions once challenges take place.


Sleep and the Mental Development Factor

Trying to build correct sleep hygiene as an educator or parent is not always easy because we often miss a mental factor as we start with a routine scheme. The trick is to keep the distractions away by letting electronics enter a hibernation mode where the alerts won't disturb us. One should consider reading before bedtime or listening to soothing music. Those that prefer peace may seek help in meditation practices. The purpose is to create a special mental environment that will help you grow and focus on development by taking the "sudden change" of going to bed challenge away.

 Sometimes getting better sleep is as simple as changing your sleep hygiene, aka the habits, you do that affect your sleep.  Learn more by downloading Alaska Sleep CLinicv's FREE e-book about sleep hygiene.  Just click the link below.
