SLEEP Management

Sleep is important! It impacts your daily life and academic success by helping you stay alert in class, promotes memory consolidation of what you’re learning, and affects processing speed, judgment, and decision-making. In addition, it improves your energy, boosts your mood, and immune health so that you can stay well and feel your best.


Sleep hygiene is a combination of habits designed to promote quality sleep. These habits can help you wake up refreshed and ready to face the day. Here are some signs of poor sleep hygiene:

  • Trouble falling asleep
  • Waking up often at night
  • Feeling sleepy during the day


Healthy Sleep Quantity


Avoid Alcohol, Nicotine & Excessive Caffeine

  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine within 2 hours of bedtime
  • Avoid caffeine within 6 hours of bedtime
  • Avoid the use of cannabis/marijuana as it can be associated with impaired sleep quality.

Adopt a Sleep-Friendly Diet

A sleep-friendly diet include a variety of foods with adequate protein and fiber.

Get Moving During the Day

Regular physical activity is great for sleep! Aim for 30-60 min per day.
