Why Sleep Is Important For Academic Success!

Sleep = Academic Success

We have all been there…the last minute cram sessions, the all-nighter term paper, and the unorganized group projects with classmates you barely know and probably completing their part so your team does not fall behind.

Times like these coffee becomes your best friend and you now find yourself staying up late, skipping class the next day and falling behind in your studies. If you find yourself sleeping less than six hours a night, you are affecting your ability to concentrate and retain information. Sleep is so important in college because it helps your overall well-being,  not to mention your academic success. 

Lack of sleep can lead to:

  • Sleep disorders
  • Poor GPA
  • Mood swings
  • Poor immune system
  • Inability to focus
  • Stress

If you find yourself struggling to get sleep, perhaps it is time to change up the way you work as a student and have better time management. For example, have more study sessions, get that big head start on the term paper and set group study dates so you can work as a team collectively and not individually…less stress for everyone!

Having a healthy sleep schedule in college can really benefit you as a student because getting those extra Zzzz’s can help you get those A’s!
