Sleep 7-9 hours per night for heroic benefits! Regular sleep leads to better grades, memory, focus, and productively. In addition, sleep can lower stress, boost mood, and improve your mental well-being.
Develop Good Sleep Habits So You Can Soar!
✅ Put Caffeine in its Place- The effects of caffeine can be felt long after you finish your cup of joe. Avoid caffeinated beverages such as coffee, pop, energy drinks, and tea at least 6 hours before bedtime.
✅ Don't Let Alcohol Be Your Kryptonite - Alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle, making you feel groggy the next morning. Limit drinking to get the best rest and be the hero in class.
✅ Disconnect from Your Phone/Technology- Turn off your screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime to avoid the blue light throwing off your melatonin (a natural sleep hormone) production.
✅ Make Mindfulness Your Superpower -Did you know… the most commonly reported barrier to sleep is stress? Reduce stress by incorporating mindfulness practices into your regular bedtime routine.Try relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises, a body scan, gentle yoga, light stretching, or practicing gratitude.
✅ Make a Regular Bedtime Routine-Our bodies LOVE predictability. Create a sleep schedule for yourself by doing the same things before bed (like brushing your teeth, washing your face, and reading a book), going to bed at the same time every night, and waking up at the same time every morning. It will make it easier for you to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed!
