Get Ready for Sleep Week!
Sleep is essential for a healthy, productive life! Join Counseling Support Services for several sleep awareness activities for Sleep Week from March 19th-23rd, 2018.
Sleep Week encourages the campus community to prioritize sleep to improve overall health and well-being. On March 19th from 10am to 2pm, the University Nurse will be joining Counseling Support Services in the Johnson Center Atrium to provide sleep education. Stop by all the events throughout the week to learn more about sleep health, to grab a snack that promotes restful sleep, and more!
In the mean time, here are 5 benefits of sleep that will motivate you to get to sleep at a healthy hour:
- Better sleep helps you keep your attention on something long enough to learn it and remember it.
- Sleep allows you to control your emotions and makes it easier to cope with stress.
- More sleep makes you more productive and leads to fewer mistakes.
- Sleep allows your body to better regulate ghrelin (hunger hormone) and leptin (stuffed hormone) so you are less hungry.
- Sleep improves your health in the short term (fighting colds and other infections) and long term (preventing heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other serious diseases).
