CTV News: And you thought the cold was just annoying

February 28, 2014 — 

The U of M’s Manitoba’s extreme winter weather may be having effects on children’s sleep patterns due to lack of exercise, reported CTV News. The story quoted Diana McMillan, a professor in the Faculty of Nursing whose research focuses on sleep and sleep disturbance.


“There’s a whole host of things that come from not getting an adequate amount of sleep,” said McMillan.

She said the key is to find ways to exercise, even if that means doing so indoors rather than at an outdoor school recess.
