Sleep does so much for our overall well-being and health, but it is typically the first thing we reduce when our schedules get busy. Getting enough sleep is essential for being your best physically, emotionally, academically and socially. Sleep makes you feel refreshed and less easily frustrated. Quality sleep contributes to academic success by helping you stay more alert in class, promoting memory consolidation of what you study, and affecting processing speed so you can learn faster. Additionally, it improves your energy and immune health so that you can stay well and feel your best.

Did you know?
44% of students reported feeling rested when they woke up in the morning on four or more days of the week.

We need 7-10 hours of sleep each night to perform at our optimal levels. Trying to maintain a regular sleep routine is one of the key tips. Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day sets the body's "internal clock" to expect sleep at a certain time night after night.
