Blogger Offers Tips for Sleepy College Students
August 28, 2009
We've written a lot in the past couple of weeks about how going back to school can affect the sleep-wake patterns of teens and younger children. But what about older students who face a more rigorous academic and social schedule? Late-night studying and partying can take a toll on college students, Dr. Michael J. Breus recently wrote on the news site the Huffington Post. Sleep deprivation can have a negative effect on college students' health, academic performance and safety. Unlike with teens and younger children, the issue of pushing back school start times plays less of a role with college students considering they have more control over their class schedule. Breus, a blogger known as The Sleep Doctor, offers some suggestions for struggling students, from maximizing time management and stress-reduction practices to exercise and napping.
