Sleeping Tips in College

We have all been there – whether it is all nighters, cat naps, or insomnia, college is known for sleep deprivation.

I’ve put a few tips together to help you get some proper sleep, which makes for a more productive day.

1. Exercise. Try walking to class or joining the gym at school. Exercise will help you with deeper sleep and getting up in the morning.

2. Drink less caffeine. Sometimes caffeine is the college student’s life support, or so we think it is. In truth, caffeine effects your nervous system, which keeps your brain stimulated making  it harder to relax.

3. Nap less. They sometimes can make you more tired, or they can throw your sleeping pattern off for the night.

4. Clear your mind. Unwind before you go to bed with a nighttime ritual (your own) whether it be washing your face,  taking a bath, or reading. Take all your thoughts a put them aside for a new day.

5. Sleep comfortably. If you like pillows, get more. Get comfy pajamas as well. Also make sure the room is properly ventilated.

Sleep is extremely valuable, especially during finals! I hope this helps.
