As I have long suspected, ordinary school is a big headache.
New research from the U.S. Nationwide Children’s Hospital found there’s a 31 percent uptick in headaches among children 5 to 18 years old in the fall, according to Science Daily.
These headaches were likely caused by schedule changes and an increase in after-school activities, the study said. Headaches may also be the result of poor sleep schedules and low amounts of exercise due to the demands of a school day and homework.
If only someone would design a healthy school that didn’t bore kids into a stupor. Maybe someone like a doctor could do it.
