Week 7 impression post option 2

I definitely agree that young students and children are not getting enough sleep and it is slowly but surly affecting their health and their daily life.  As a young adult, your supposed to get about 9 to 10 hours of sleep every night. But for most people including myself, that is not accomplished. Many hobbies and activities now days get in the way of sleep such as, cellphones, studying for an exam, or maybe you just have so much anxiety that you can’t fall asleep. One thing that I didn’t know that I found very interesting while listening in class is that your not supposed to lay in your bed unless you actually want to sleep or need to sleep. Hearing this was a game changer for me because I’m constantly in my bed because I live in a dorm room. There’s not very many options for me to choose besides my uncomfortable wooden chair. But after hearing that I’m not making efforts to not lie in my bed, or not sit near the end where the pillows are. I now study and do my work at the very end so my brain doesn’t think that it’s nap time. I have a very hard time allowing myself to fall asleep at night because of the amount of food I eat during the day and how late I wake up on the weekends. I hardly eat at all during the day partly because of my medication but partly because my body is so used to eating food at night. This is one of the main reasons why I’m up so late. But I now am trying to make efforts to go to bed on time and eat meals at a normal time throughout my day. So far this week was the most interesting to me because it helped me learn how to sleep better and things that I can do to improve my sleep habits in the future. And if there was anything that I would recommend to a student or a high school student, it would be too try to go to sleep before 11 P.M. at night.

  1. I’m right there with you when it comes to not getting enough sleep. Sometimes it’s just impossible to get everything you want to get done, done and still get sleep. Cell phones are usually the problem for me. When I’m on it during the day, it just pushes back time to do work into the time that I’m supposed to be sleeping. If I use it at night, I always have a problem falling asleep. I now know that happens because of the screen. The idea that you are not supposed to lay in your bed during the day was a game-changer for me too. I have the same problem as you in that I’m forced to choose between my uncomfortable bed and a wooden chair. I think I will also start making efforts to not lie in my bed the same way I do when I sleep. I had a similar problem to yours in the summer. I would go to sleep late and wake up late and everything go thrown off. It got a lot easier for me when I got to school because I was on a schedule. My suggestion to help that would definitely be to put yourself on a schedule. Eat lunch at 12 and dinner at 6 or 7. I think that would go a long way in helping you fall asleep.

  2. I’m glad the things we’ve learned in class are already helping you think about getting better sleep Simon. Remember that for first impression posts, you have to do them before we discuss the content, so this one won’t count toward your required number of posts for the semester. Hope the changes you make to your sleep hygiene make a difference in your sleep quality!
