… we promise not to take offense!
As midterm approaches, you may want to ask yourself whether you’re getting enough sleep. Sleep deprivation manifests in myriad forms – from daytime sleepiness to increased risk of serious health disorders – and can have a significant impact on productivity. To balance out potentially stressful situations, such as exams and research projects, try to achieve a sufficient amount of sleep each night. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults (18+) need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Are you getting enough?
