Sacrificing sleep to study can lead to academic problems

I don’t have anything against hard work – but it’s critical to consider the consequences of our choices. When you protect the quality of your sleep, you set yourself up for better health, better mood, better focus. And – likely – better grades.

How might you do this:

  • be realistic about how much you can take on at any given time
  • be prepared to drop a course if you get behind, and are sacrificing health to catch up
  • use personal and school resources to study efficiently when you’re not exhausted
  • set limits with friends & family to minimize interruptions, if needed
Have a great semester!
