Getting Enough Sleep?
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) reported that 35% of adults in America don't get enough sleep, which increases their risk of contracting illneses such as: diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Based off a study done in 2014, they reported that about 1 in 3 people in the United States. In order to make sure that you get enough sleep, and don't put yourself in danger, the CDC listed several habits that may improve your ammount of sleep. Some examples of what might help include: avoiding tobacco, removing all large electronics from the bedroom, and keeping your bedroom dark in order to relax. Personally, I know that I am going to try some of these examples, because I really don't really feel like contracting heart disease or having a stroke.
How about all of you? Do you feel like you could pull off taking electronics out of your room if it meant avoiding life-threatening diseases ?
And even if you did, do you get enough sleep as a student?
