SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP!

Getting your good night’s rest is important. Sleeping helps your brain function better and prepares you for the next day. You should try and get between 7-9 hours of sleep every night. Although many college students and adults loose sleep because they somehow think they’re young and they’ll be able to sleep once there are in their elderly year, they are only harming themselves. Every morning is going to be a challenge, you don’t function properly throughout your daily duties, and you become more of a sloth. For instance, falling asleep in a classroom or an office meeting is pretty embarrassing and you don’t want to be that person. You definitely don’t want to be that person. So get your sleep on! Oh and remember, the time just changed an hour backwards.

“Studies also show that sleep deficiency alters activity in some parts of the brain. If you’re sleep deficient, you may have trouble making decisions, solving problems, controlling your emotions and behavior, and coping with change. Sleep deficiency also has been linked to depression, suicide, and risk-taking behavior.” – National Institutes of Health
