The importance of sleep during the night is incontestable. From the total number of students queried 95 sleep for 5 or 6 hours per night and we dare to say that it is little. The remaining three quarters of them sleep as needed, between 7 and 10 hours. Furthermore, some of our colleagues sleep for a few hours at noon. It seems that we are relatively good in this chapter.
As for the time spent with the family, only 180 of us really want to spend more time with them. Even if we don’t know the reasons for this, it is a bit worrying that 60% only sometimes of even never want to stay more with their families.
And now, the surprise! If in the previous graphic only 1/3 wanted to spend more time with their families, this time the situation is quite opposite: 2/3 want to be with their friends more while only 1/3 don’t.
It is said that we get informed through the TV and computer, and we tell you that 184 of us spend between 2 and 4 hours in front of the screen. There are colleagues that spend less than 1 hour doing this, but there are also 42 more generous students, with more than 6 hours per day.
We have been curious even concerning the music genres that students from our school are listening to. We will let you analyze the graphic, because you can see for yourself that there are still some who like classical music but also “manele” (a rather curious combination). Maybe it is good to know that music in which low frequencies predominate sometimes has unexpectedly unpleasant effects on our organism. The graphics are relevant for this: children listen mostly to rock, the last column combining extremely varied choices (Indian, religious, folk, drum 'n' bass, punk, blues, jazz, etc.)
We consider that a future college graduate must have read at least a part of the 100 recommended universal literature books. We can tell you that in one week, 110 of us read less than an hour, but in a future meeting we wish to invite those 50 who read more than 5 hours a week. This way we can be sure that they will know what to say to us.
Concerning the spiritual health, we have asked our colleagues what importance it has for them. More than 3 quarters of them see it as a positive thing.
We assume that there are some who don’t know how important breakfast is for us (or maybe they do, but objective reasons prevent them from having the most important meal of the day) so only half of us take this matter seriously, while 109 consider it only partly important and 147 really don’t have time to eat in the morning.
We have noticed that from that from the 463 queried students, 186 (40%) of them eat 3 times a day, an equal number eat twice a day and 27 (6%) eat only once daily. There are some who eat more than 3 times a day, but those 6% are the ones who worry us.
It is important not only how many times we eat but also what we eat. We are glad to notice that, as the graphic shows, almost 400 students of the 474 consume cooked food. Nearly 60 eat cold food and only 22 fast-food.
We have been pretty indiscrete even in the physical health chapter and asked our colleagues if they smoke, and assuming that they were honest (the survey being anonymous) we have found that 30 of us do smoke and 37 only occasionally, but those 398 are the ones whom we admire (from a total of 465).
Without a trace of irony the graphic shows that only a quarter of us drink alcohol. We are not glad of this, but we intend to educate our colleagues of what interesting phenomena happen in our bodies, especially in our neurons, when we consume those substances.
We have gone a little further with the query and asked how many of us are absolved from sport and we have noticed that approximately a quarter of us really are, 24 of which totally and 68 partly.
As for practicing sports, the graphic tell us that 39 don’t do sports at all while 102 of them do daily. Worth mentioning is that 255 of us (more than half) practice sports 2 or more times a week.
We have asked our colleagues how stressed they are. It seems that we have reached European levels, if more that 306 of us are facing a lot of stressing factors. 45 of them are even evaluating it at its maximum level.
These are the health problems the queried students mentioned about.
We have presented a short version of the survey’s results. We intend to meet with our colleagues during this school year, find our new things about the subjects we have talked about and positively educate them and even ourselves.
