Sleep, it seems like something so basic yet most of us don’t really know how to go about it. “Get eight hours of sleep every night” is something we all hear. I know that I for one do not do this. However, there is some truth to these words. Getting eight hours of sleep is crucial for proper development and for productivity during the day. With finals coming up and projects being due it is important that college students are getting the proper amounts of sleep since some benefits of sleep include the ability to “think more clearly and do better at work” (ODPHP, 2018). This can be a critical aspect when thinking about all the tests, quizzes, and exams that require a student’s full attention and awareness. Furthermore, with proper sleep one is less likely to get sick (ODPHP, 2018). Waking up for an 8 a.m. while feeling under the weather would be less than ideal.
