College is a time of self-discovery, freedom and new responsibilities. It’s also a time when sleep is routinely sacrificed for other pursuits. College students need at least 7 hours of sleep each night to fully function. When Cheap Sheep was a fresh-faced college freshman, he completely wrecked his sleep schedule with some bad habits. In college you need to be operating at full capacity, so you get the most out of your experience. Let’s look at some ways you can get better sleep in college!

Sacrificing sleep can affect your grades and long-term health. During the day, Cheap Sheep was more into playing his guitar and trying to impress the cute girl down the hall. This meant that our little lamb had to pull “all nighters” to write papers, finish assignments, and study for tests. While this might seem like a good plan, it actually did more harm than good. Sleep deprivation negatively affects memory, thinking skills and cognition, which was all counterproductive to Cheap Sheep’s late-night study sessions. It’s better to manage your time, and balance your schoolwork and social life.

Getting better sleep is important for the success of both pursuits!

Sleep deprivation also causes long-term physical problems. Cheap Sheep’s immune system decreased, which made him more susceptible to colds and the flu. And even though he was an 18-year-old “teen sensation,” sleep deprivation awarded Cheap Sheep with unattractive dark circles around his eyes and a washed-out appearance. Lack of sleep can also contribute to the dreaded weight-gain of the “Freshman 15.”

Cheap Sheep turned over a new leaf during his sophomore year to get better sleep. He limited his caffeine intake during the day, and didn’t exercise too close to bedtime. Cheap Sheep managed his time better, and stopped studying at least 30 minutes before bedtime. He also never worked on his laptop from bed. He even created a sleep schedule and stuck to it. Cheap Sheep was sleeping better, his grades improved, and he even landed a date with the cutie down the hall. Now that’s what the Mattress Hub located in Kansas & Missouri calls a college success story. If Cheap Sheep can do it, so can you!
