Turning 18, heading off to college, starting your journey into figuring out who you are as an adult; it’s a big task. Not only is there a lot to do, a lot to think about, but there’s a lot of stress involved in these choices. And in the things that help teach and mature you while tackling them. One of the ways most college aged people, and especially those in school, see the symptoms of stress manifest is in how it impacts their sleep. Not only does it become a challenge to get enough, but sometimes it’s even tough to get good sleep.
Some simple tips might help put you back on track, so you can shoulder up under the burden of becoming who you want to be. Start with a schedule. Pick a routine for when and how you go to sleep, and stick to it. The habit, even when it seems silly such as on weekends or other free days, can help train your body to shut down and recharge when it’s time. Establish some bedtime activities, like light reading or listening to music. Ensure your bed is as comfortable as you can make it, from the mattress to the pillows. And, obvious suggestion, mind the caffeine starting several hours before you lay down.
Some simple sleep tips can help you make the grade with whatever college has in store for you. #HealthStatus
