  2. Wow. I knew sleep was important, but I didn't realize that it served so many functions. First off, sleep helps keep your immune system up, helping ward off disease. According to the article, "Long-term sleep deprivation raises your risk of developing chronic illnesses like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases." That was particularly striking to me, as I thought sleep could only fight minor flus and infections. The other problem with sleep deprivation is drowsiness throughout the day. To me, this seems as dangerous as driving drunk. Between drowsiness and micro-naps, you are very likely to find yourself in an accident. I think students need to do a better job of getting enough sleep. This includes putting the phones away and getting to bed earlier. Now, this is easier said than done, but it's worth a shot.

  4. This article contains some eye opening facts that made me realize that I need to get more sleep in order to live a safer lifestyle. I learned that a lack of sleep can interfere with your balance and decision making. Also you can experience micro sleep, a period of a few minutes where you fall asleep and don't even realize it. All of these effects from lack of sleep can cause accidents while driving due to not being able to stay focused and stay awake 100% of the time and that's a risk I want to avoid.
