Prioritize Sleep

Getting 7 – 9 hours of sleep each night (yes, really!) is one of the most important things you can do to protect your mental health and improve your academic performance. When we’re busy, it can be tempting to skimp on sleep, but a lack of sleep can increase anxiety, irritability, inability to concentrate, and depression. Learn about ways to improve your ‘sleep hygiene’.
