Sleep More To Help You Study
For those of you that are studying, here are a few ideas to help you succeed with your studies.
Do you use your car for getting to school? You had better use your seat belt and buckle up considering many car crashes today are caused by lack of sleep. Chances are you are not getting the right amount of sleep at night. Sleep depravation doesn't just cause physical tiredness; it can affect the function of your brain too. This article looks at how lack of sleep can affect your learning potential.
Figures given by the national sleep foundation indicate that 85% of students do not get enough sleep. What constitutes as enough sleep? While definitions can vary, it seems the average is about 8.5 hours of sleep per night according to the foundation. If the calculation is correct and 85% of students are suffering from sleep loss, then you could gain an edge on them just from lying in bed, relaxing, and getting more sleep.
Sleep depravation can damage ones ability to stay focused, abstract thinking, creative ability, communication, and more. If these symptoms seem familiar, they are also symptoms of ADHD, the attention deficit disorder many people experience. It as been shown that these symptoms lead to poor performance in the classroom.
The route people should take in order to get more sleep is to make sleeping a larger priority in there lives. Many people have a sleep schedule that has a very low priority in there busy lives. Investing in a new set of soft sheets or a better mattress and bed could give people the incentive to making sleep a greater priority in there lives. Even some sleep inducing music, such as sounds of the sea can help a person fall asleep.
Once a student finds a way of getting more sleep positive results should be instant. Grades will go up because of better quality work. There will be a large increase in energy which could be converted into more productive working time.
It has been noted that getting more sleep can have other fringe benefits besides helping you learn better. When the body gets at least eight hour sleep you wake up with more energy which will lead to a more full filling life style. Also having more sleep will contribute to feeling relaxed and happier.
