    Hi there. I lead a relatively balanced and healthy lifestyle with exercise and maybe even the odd piece of fresh fruit. I get 8-10 hours sleep most nights (I'm 17 so I reckon thats fairly healthy) and I've been trying to reset my body clock so that I go to bed 9-10 ish (sad I know...) and can get up at 6:30 without feeling tired. I've done this routine for a month ish and still feel really tired when I get up in the morning. Is this normal?

    Yes it is. At 17 children's bodies are still growing due to maturation and expending more energy than it has before. It's normal to constantly be tired.

    The system is flawed in that it expects a universal waking up for everyone of all ages regardless of their sleeping needs.

    Schools always complain that teenagers are the most late to school of all ages and they're very quick to label them as "lazy" as a result.
