Sleep is a Student’s Best Friend

Townsquare Media

Ever wonder what it would take to get higher grades?  It might be much simpler than you think.

Studies have long shown the many benefits of a good night’s sleep and college health officials are finally realizing that healthy sleep habits translate into higher grades. Good nightly slumber helps students avoid the usual pitfalls of college life: anxiety, depression, physical health problems and academic troubles.

Some studies have found students getting adequate sleep average a full letter grade higher than those who don’t. Of course, as we all know, college is not set up for healthy sleeping patterns with irregular schedules, new-found freedom, endless social interaction, loud and crowded housing, late-night exercise and food washed down by booze, coffee and energy drinks. Oh yeah, and then there’s the internet distraction.

Whereas experts recommend nine hours of sleep a night, most college kids these days get an average of six.  Hey students, you might want to check in earlier if you want to make the grade.

Here are some tips for better sleep:

  • Avoid the College All-Nighter for Better Health
  • Stick to a regular bed time routine
  • Avoid sleep aids
  • Make your bed more comfortable with soft sheets and a good pillow
  • Use a white noise machine to block out other sounds
