Have Trouble Adjusting Your Sleep Schedule for School? You’re Not Alone, and There’s Hope.  

 

 

Oh, the lazy days of vacation. Relaxing, vacationing, and enjoying every second without a worry in the world. If only it could last forever. Well, as any time off, whether it be summer, or Christmas break, comes to an end and school approaches, you may find yourself asking, do I get enough sleep? You probably spend vacation staying up all night and sleeping in all day, which causes your sleep schedule to be extremely off track. Waking up for school becomes the hardest part of the day, and this lack of sleep can be detrimental to our health. The good news is that there are several solutions to this common problem. 

 

One helpful tip to help shift your bedtime back to the appropriate time for school, is to start gradually. It is going to be very difficult to wake up on the first day back to school if the night before you fell asleep at 3 am. So, starting gradually means practicing before the ‘real’ day. On the last week of a break, challenge yourself to go to sleep 30 minutes earlier and wake up 30 minutes earlier than the previous day. Do this for one week, and by the first day of school, you will be ready, well- rested, and happy. This is the simple method Paulina Diez used to bounce back from summer insomnia this year: “I was able to get up at a reasonable time and not feel as tired. I am planning on using this method whenever I'm transitioning from a break to school."

 

Another important factor that plays a significant role in getting a sufficient amount of sleep, is physical activity. Kim West, contributor to U.S. Health News Magazine, states that exercise reduces stress and tires you out. Therefore, improving sleeping quality and increasing sleeping duration. By simply taking a brisk walk or going to the gym, your sleep schedule can be back on track once again. 

 

The last major factor that will surely benefit your sleep schedule is turning off all electronics an hour before bed. West states that the human body produces a hormone called melatonin in order to go to sleep at night. If you look at an electronic device right before you go to sleep, the blue light that is emitted from the device suppresses the production of melatonin, causing you to have a harder time falling asleep. 

 

The effects of sleep deprivation are detrimental in several ways. Camille Peri, contributor to WebMD Magazine, states that sleep deprivation can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and depression. Sleep loss can also age your skin, make you forgetful, and impair your judgement. Making sure you are well- rested is one of the most important tasks you have. There are so many benefits of having a well-managed sleeping schedule. You will perform better in school, and be happier about going to school. You will be less stressed and you will be able cope with issues more effectively. Being well-rested has a positive impact on you, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
