College students are notorious for pulling all nighters, whether they stay up to hit the books or to hit the bottle. However, this comes at a cost, one that is realized even more so as students seek to perform well academically, achieve socially, and have time to rest. The greatest indicator of doing too much, at the wrong times, is the quality and quantity of sleep students are getting. It becomes important to manage time, and remember: “There is always time for sleep.”
- students do not maintain regular sleep hours which can interfere with educational success. They also do not manage time well which leads to lack of time to sleep.
- lack of sleep can cause other health problems besides sleep deprivation. It can affect their emotional and mental well being as well as physical health.
- many college students resort to caffeine to make it through the day and don’t treat lack of sleep as a health issue just something that is required of college students
