INTRODUCTION

Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly. Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams. Sleeping is a process with several distinct phases. At each phase, different physiological processes take place:  Deep and restful sleep helps to restore energy you expend during the day. Your brain is actively working while you sleep to create new pathways for areas such as learning, memories and new insights. Good sleep helps your body to fight off common infections. There are many factors which helps in maintaining a regular sleep schedule that are difficult for a student.  The demanding lives of undergraduate and graduate students can make it challenging to maintain healthy daily habits. A lot of studies revealed that teenagers’ hours of sleep often sacrificed due to time mismanagement. The problem is they didn’t get the enough time which they needed when sleeping or sleep deprivation. This research will determine the factor that causes the high school students to feel sleepy during class hours.

IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY

This research may benefit not just only a single person. The findings accumulated by this study may provide significant benefits to the following:

TEENAGERS / STUDENTS - This research will help them to know their limitations when staying late up night and its consequences. How this thing or bad habit can distract or lead to something worst especially to their studies. PARENTS – They will know what factors affect their children to stay late at night. It will also help them in guiding their children. TEACHERS- It will also help them to think of a better way on how they can make their class discussion alive and to avoid sleepy feelings for the students.

THEORETICAL OR CONCEPTUAL FRAME WORK
CAUSES| EFFECTS| OUTCOMES|
1. Students usually lack in time management doing school works| They will sacrifice their time sleeping just to finish it.| They will feel sleepy in the class| 2. They will sleep in their subject| They will miss the lesson on that day.| They will cheat or rush studying on their exams.| 3. They will rush studying in the class| There is a tendency to fail the exam| Your grades will be affected.|

Based on the table students usually did not use their time wisely when it comes in doing their school works. They usually rushed all the things. As a result they will sacrifice their time sleeping just to finish it. But doing that has negative outcomes that may affect not only one day for it may become a habit that can distract your studies.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

* How do a subject can also affect why they feel sleepy?

* How teachers can affect their students to become sleepy?
