Getting a Good Night's Sleep

This time of the semester, you may feel that you’re too busy studying, working or having fun to slow down and get some rest. Additionally, daily stressors may be making it harder for you to enjoy satisfying sleep. However, sleep is an essential, not optional, part of your day. Without enough sleep, you can’t focus properly, your mood may be affected, and you may become more susceptible to the common cold, flu and other infections. So make sleep a priority. Organize your sleep environment to be cool, quiet, dark and comfortable. Remove any clutter from your bed and the surrounding area so you have a clear space to sleep. Develop a pre-bedtime routine and shut down electronics 30 minutes before going to sleep. For more tips on getting a good night’s sleep, visit Counseling Services. To schedule an appointment, go to <www.earlham.edu/counseling-services> and click on the “Make an Appointment” link. For further information, email Director of Counseling Services Jessica Sanford at sanfoje@earlham.edu.
