Sleep Promotion

Messaging Considerations

  • Emphasize the connection between sleep and mental and physical health, as well as academic success. Sleep increases memory consolidation, learning, decision making and critical thinking. Sleep also helps to support our immune systems and regulate our metabolism and emotions.
  • Avoid associating sleep with stress or pressure as to not increase residents’ anxiety towards sleep.
  • Be mindful of different sleeping conditions (insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, etc.) when discussing sleep.
  • Try not to normalize lack of sleep while being in college. Instead, promote healthier sleep on your floor by trying out some of the activities below.
