A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for our health. In fact, it’s just as important as
eating healthy and exercising. Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can interfere with natural sleep
patterns. People are now sleeping less than they did in the past, and sleep quality has
decreased as well. Many people, both adults and children are suffering from sleep deprivation
due to this added stress of the pandemic.
CPS Global School Thirumazhisai understood this major issue and in order to educate and
empower our students with adequate knowledge on this aspect we conducted a proactive Life
skill session for Children from CAIE 1 to 8. In this session students learnt the importance of a
good night’s sleep and its benefits. They also learnt how to regulate their circadian Rhythm
(Biological clock), Importance of exposure to sun light, Melatonin (Sleeping hormone) and
its physical, emotional, psychological health benefits.
Our circadian rhythm is our body’s natural way of keeping a 24-hour body clock, helping our
body to operate on a healthy sleep-wake schedule. Living a healthy, active lifestyle that
promotes proper rest will help us maintain this important component of our body.
Maintaining a regular circadian rhythm is crucial for healthy sleep for everyone. Exposure to
light in the morning triggers our brain to produce melatonin. The first thing we should do
after alarm sounds is open the blinds, we should get outside and exposure to sunlight will
help reset our internal clock for the day, so that our brain produces enough melatonin to get
The students were encouraged to follow the beautiful quote of Benjamin Franklin -“Early to
bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise”. . . .
