Naps for Class

What’s Going On.

The following post ‘Naps for Class’ was inspired by two wonderful articles from TIME and New York Times. The post surrounds the same subject and problem for all college students and I encourage my audience to read their articles, as well.

 

The subject is quite important for people of all ages and different populations, but the subject is supremely important for college students. College students of this generation happen to be one of the most sleep-deprived population, according to Campus Mind Works, and being aware of the importance of sleep for your mental and physical health, as well as your grades can change your college experience for the better.

The Lay Down

 

It’s a common fact that a majority of college students are sleep deprived. No matter what university, what major, or what classes they are taking, a majority of college students are so stressed or “too busy” to find time to rest.

 

But it’s important to find rest. Anywhere and at any time.

You can chug energy drinks and cups of coffee but the caffeine in them can only do so much to help you get that A. However, a good 20-60 minute nap can give you that rest that your brain needs to refresh itself.

 

Many colleges are realizing this too. A good number of universities are investing in MetroNaps’EnergyPod, these pods come with a timer and relaxing music that allow a student to rest from 20-30 minutes. Universities that can’t afford these luxury pods, invest in silent rooms where students can rest during those long nights.

 

According to a study in TIME, “poor sleep was found to be as powerful as binge drinking, and more powerful than marijuana, in predicting who would have academic problems.”

 

Please rest up. It’s important to get those Zzz’s if you want them A’s.
