Abstract

Sleep deprivation is so prevalent nowadays that anybody, regardless of age, can suffer from it. Teenagers are more vulnerable in terms of academic performance, emotional and mental challenges. In this study, researchers look primarily at the coping strategies of senior high school students who are sleep deprived. The researchers first chose the Senior High School Students of Leyte Normal University-Integrated Laboratory School as research participants. The researchers subsequently constructed the researcher-made questionnaires, which were first approved by the Research Advisor. The questionnaires were then given to the participants. The researchers used Colaizzi's (1978) data analysis technique to evaluate, define, and portray the experiences of sleep-deprived students, as well as to reveal developing trends. Despite having experienced varying degrees of sleep deprivation, the subjects (Students) exhibited comparable coping techniques. The most common is the consumption of any beverage, whether caffeinated, milk, hot tea, or even cold water. Some participants keep themselves occupied by listening to music, browsing social media platforms, and engaging in physical activities such as exercising, taking a bath, and actively participating in class discussions. These are the typical coping techniques that the students use to avoid sleepiness. And it appears that the students did well in combating sleep deprivation; so, we can claim that sleep deprivation is something that we can regulate via or with effort. As a result, it is essential that students create an appropriate itinerary to assist them maintain a regular balance between their personal life, academics, and relaxation time.
