  2. July 3, 2018Test your sleep health knowledgea bedroom

    How well do you sleep on an average week? If you aren’t sure, ask yourself the following questions:

    • Do you ever fall asleep in class or at your computer?
    • Do you watch the clock as you struggle to fall asleep?
    • Do you routinely procrastinate and then pull all-nighters to meet your deadlines?

    Sleep is an important part of a healthy self-care routine which also includes nutritious food, exercise, and mindfulness. Research shows that all-nighters and skipping sleep can impact your academic performance. Consistently getting an optimum amount of sleep is a way that you can do your best academically.

    Spending time outside can increase both your physical and mental wellness. A UK study which challenged people to do something outside for 30 days in a row found that “there was a scientifically significant increase in people’s health, happiness, connection to nature and active nature behaviours, such as feeding the birds and planting flowers for bees – not just throughout the challenge, but sustained for months after the challenge had been completed.”[i] Your time in nature doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. Keep reading for some ways to spend mindful moments outside.
