Newswise - TORONTO, Aug. 15, 2012 - Students' first year at university or college is often jam packed with a lot of classes, assignments and social events. Finding ways to get enough sleep at night can be a little tricky for students who are constantly on the go. Professor Colleen Carney, a sleep disorder expert at Ryerson University's Sleep and Depression Lab offers simple, effective ways that can be used to help students sleep well.
1. Get a good night's sleep
Don't deprive yourself of sleep to get more done. Sleep deprivation is a major brain and energy killer - consider scaling back your to-do list and find new ways to manage your time, and above all else, get some rest. You will do better on your test and pay more attention in class if you are well rested. Getting a good night's sleep can also prevent more serious sleep and mood problems from developing.
