ollege students are often heavily sleep deprived as they sacrifice sleep in order to study, work, and/or have a social life in addition to their academic commitments. Assess your current sleep habits and how healthy you think they are. What is a realistic goal for amount of sleep per night for a college student and how can you improve your sleep habits?
I know for a fact that my current sleep habits are very unhealthy. Almost every night I do not get the “recommended” adequate sleep of 6-8 hours. I always stay up super late, and sleep in a lot too. I usually get about 3-5 hours of sleep a night (which is horrible). I feel that a realistic goal for a college student should at least be 5-6 hours, I know many college students spend a lot of their night’s up late doing school work (like me) so I feel like a very realistic goal is 5 hours a night depending on the work load. I think one way I could improve my sleep Is getting my work done during the day or get my work done the small amounts of time I have in between classes.
