Why healthy sleep is crucial for academic success

Video taken from the channel: Demystifying Medicine

She and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine offer these suggestions: • Go to bed and get up every day at approximately the same time, weekends included. • Create a relaxing bedroom setting and follow a consistent bedtime routine. • Avoid foods and drinks that contain caffeine and any medication. Sleep is key to college success (HealthDay)—It can be hard for college students to get enough sleep, and that can affect their physical and mental well-being, a sleep expert says. Exercising during the day can help you sleep at night. Don’t rely on pills to get to sleep or caffeine to stay awake.

Both may mask bigger sleep problems. If you have to nap, do it before 4 p.m. and sleep no more than 30 minutes, Das advised. Exposure to bright light as soon as you wake up will help you be alert for early morning classes, she said. College students are one of the most sleep-deprived population. This sleep deprivation in them is linked to lower GPAs because sleep affects concentration, memory and the ability to learn.

In other words, it becomes hard for college students to get enough sleep. Indirectly, it is stated as sleep is the key to college success. Recent studies have demonstrated that sleep is essential to academic success. Put simply, it is not just something to do in your spare time.

On the contrary, it is an active, influential activity is required for motor and cognitive function. Unfortunately, sleep is rarely viewed as a. “When you are sleep-deprived, you don’t think as clearly. Staying up all night to study can backfire and affect performance on exams. If you can’t avoid an all-nighter, do it strategically by getting a good night’s sleep before and after,” Das said. Sleep plays an important role in how you succeed in your classes.

Studies have shown that the quantity and quality of your sleep equal or outrank popular campus concerns such as alcohol and drug use when it comes to predicting. Exercising during the day can help you sleep at night. Don’t rely on pills to get to sleep or caffeine to stay awake. Both may mask bigger sleep problems.

If you have to nap, do it before 4 p.m. and sleep no more than 30 minutes, Das advised. Exposure to bright light as soon as you wake up will help you be alert for early morning classes, she said. – Consistency is key — try to keep bedtime and wake up time the same. – Meditate.

So there you have it! If you want to be a happier and healthier student, take a nap and make sure you get a full night’s sleep. Sleep should be a top priority in your daily routine.

The amount of sleep that a college student gets is one of the strongest predictors of academic success. Sleep plays a key role in helping students fix and consolidate memories, plus prevent decay of memories. Without sleep, people work harder and but don’t do as well.

Lawrence Epstein, past president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and author of The Harvard Medical School Guide to a Good Night’s Sleep said, “We have in our society this idea that you can just get by without sleep or manipulate when you sleep without any consequences.

But sleep is an essential part of academic success, despite the fact that students pride themselves in marathon all night study sessions.

Sleep was truly an option during college, and one I’d opted out of far too many times.

  • Hmm. Sleep is my secret in college. Pretty much no one else sleeps enough. I get 8.5h 9h. I need to set aside 9.5h in order to account for falling asleep and potential wakings during the night.

    I just slept 10.5h today:). I had a hard workout the day before.

  • I don’t regret college, I’m employed in my field of study. But I wouldn’t have been a liberal art major in undergrad. I do regret that part.

  • Yo if college was paid for the way k-12 is paid for, your argument becomes pretty obsolete. You also probably just named the five only people to ever make it that big without a college degree, so percentage wise I’m not sure if that’s a strong argument. Not that it matters, prager u isn’t exactly known for making sound reasoning arguments during a debate really so whatever I guess do you

  • I’m in my last year of college and just during this pandemic i realized how 3 years of college is just a waste of time and money with the exception that i made some good friends.

    If i knew the truth about college 3 years earlier would never had attended college and just start some work.

  • All I know is that most “good” men only marry women who have at least a Bachelors Degree. They love throwing that into conversations. “She’s Not only beautiful, but also very smart!” All of my female friends who married successful men have 1 or 3 degrees. No, they didn’t meet their partners at the universities they attended. Neither of them are using their degrees as they are stay at home moms. Also your parents would be very proud and love to tell the whole world that you are well educated. It might NOT get you your dream job, but it makes your parents proud and gets you a better mate and admiration from friends. That’s how society works!

  • American universities are committing FRAUD and should be held accountable. Irrefutable incontrovertible proof: AOC and Brown Unversity.

  • That is why i hate when people say i am smart like dude you have no idea how many hours i spend buried in books until my communication skills suffered. Now, i am in the top class in school. I still remember how my teacher told me that never ever a student from the forth class onwards entered the second class (my school has 17 classes, i was in the fifth for three years). I made it happen and so can others too. So stop calling me smart or talented, I’m just more hardworking than you who don’t.

  • Wow, I’m sure you had to struggle with the millions in donations from fracking billionaires you had, and I’m sure the left’s education is a threat to you

  • I spend my most of time in “recording”,”gameplay” and editing and uploading. I need all my brother’s and sisters’ support. ��������

  • I already don’t have a TV in my room, but I admit I keep my cell phone in the bed with me. Tonight I’m not going to do that. I’ve been working on improving my sleep for months, and it’s been working quite well overall. I feel it’s an onion and I keep peeling back the layers. Leaving my cell phone outside the room may just prove to be “the next layer.”

  • Just recently I have stopped using my phone in the morning and I have already seen my productivity and focus improve so much throughout the day I really recommend trying this one for anybody who struggles with productivity or lack of focus!! It’s a bit hard the first couple days but you’ll get used to it!!

  • Arel is my hero, and one of the best people I know. His message here is vital for people of all ages who are lost and need to find their way. Pick your path, and work to your goal. Effort, man. It’s phenomenal.

  • It’s really hard to pick my biggest takeaway… but I think the thing I want to DO right away is sleep with my phone outside my room!

  • The ONLY thing holding you back, is putting the human Primate, over and above “LIFE The Real Self”…. Discover and Understand the DIFFERENCE, between “LIFE The Real Self”, and the human PRIMATE, then go on to Discover, “The Processing System of LIFE”, and LEARN HOW to access the ‘Permanent Libraries’, freeing yourselves from Ignorance.

  • Thank you for this video! Sooo motivating! I was reminded never to be distracted with what i planned to do..and to keep my focus. Godbless.

  • Wow!! This one says a lot about what i was thinking about and learning so ar!! Thanks so much for the share and taking the time to make this great videos!!

  • When I found this video I scheduled my exam I’ve been putting off for months. Studying now to pass my Mortgage Exam. Nov 26th It’s already done!! I trust the process and chill☺️☺️☺️

  • “And I just did what I thought I should do: I shut my mouth.” How many of our students, especially those from disadvantaged communities, have fallen into this trap? And it’s SO easy to empathize with this strategy; most of us know intimately how effective “keeping your head down” can be in public situations that make us uncomfortable or that we perceive to be hostile. Some reading now know this more acutely than others. Some “know” it from popular culture. Some, we might imagine, are privileged enough to be oblivious to the strategy. But think of the harm to one’s education and personal growth…

  • Nice story, I am requesting you, Please you shall make motivational videos of Caroly Tatacs biography and Hellen Keller’s biography.

  • You guys dont know what smart means. Smart is 100% necessary to being successful. Social smartness above all other areas of intelligence is most important. Math as well. All my smart friends are doctors, lawyers, accountants, pilots, and big business entrepreneurs. Smart ones are the ones that put forth the EFFORT bc they are smart enough to know what requires effort and smart enough to act on it.

  • As a successful person who didn’t go to college, this is a terrible video with a terrible message. People aren’t going to college because it’s so expensive. Saying “don’t go to college then” doesn’t solve that. Should we start telling kids to stop going to public school? No, because the education is free and valuable. There is nothing wrong with a cheaper or free education because an education is still powerful. Instead, people don’t go and do nothing about it or find cheaper or free education elsewhere. If we had a low barrier of entry for college we would have a more educated population as more people are willing to get educated, plain and simple.

    And stop talking about people who made success out of college.
    1. Some still went, regardles if they finished, they probably still learned something that’s useful.
    2. There are plenty of successful people with a college degree, but they don’t count, do they?

  • WOOOOOW!!!! I love listening to this guy talk, it gives me this mad rush of motivation. Hey @TEDx Talks can you arrange to have do more of these talks from Arel Moodie please?

  • Wow, I was the top student in secondary school, actually was the dux and passed out to medical school now I’m in the first year but suddenly everything became so dull, just felt like I became a dummy but now I can see where I went wrong and that is I was thinking that since I’m smart I could just pass the exams without even studying then now all of a sudden I’m one of the below-average students but now I can understand where the problem is and that I gotta put more effort into my studies. Thank you for sharing your story it really is inspiring to me.

  • I actually don’t share his point. Effort is NOT everything.

    Here is why:
    Of cause, you need effort. With zero effort, you don’t start and you can’t win. Easy as that. That’s important.
    But the thing about working on anything is, that you have to invest energy. And you don’t have unlimited amounts of it. This is why you have to invest your energy smarter. This does not mean that you have to be smarter but that you have to train and master (at some point) methods of learning new skills to then execute them more efficiently. You might have heard this quote by A. Lincoln:
    “If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first six to sharpen my axe”
    Life is a forest you have to chop down. You need the ultimate axe to reach certain places. So keep learning. And if your task was to sharpen the axe, You’d probably read up on axe sharpening axes six hours, wouldn’t you?

    Anyway, if you don’t have the effort to do so, if you’re intelligent enough that you know but you don’t start, you won’t get anywhere. I think, this is Arel’s point and this is what you should have got out of the video. So go out there and evolve. Now:)

  • Finally, I found someone else who thinks the same way!
    All my friends tell I’m so good at all these artistic talents, but I keep on telling them it’s hard work and how they don’t know all the time I put into making it “perfect.”
    And not just academic or artistic matters, but relationships, too, so I agree!

    I definitely felt this way with my 6/7 college courses, but I kept on saying I wasn’t going to give up, and I got principle honors this past semester. I honestly do not know how that happened with the grades I got, but I am very thankful for all the time and effort I put into every single thing. 
    They say you get what you work for, and I believe that is true.

    Last year, freshman year, I was very afraid I wouldn’t pass Math, so I wrote in my book and on a post-it note, “I refuse to fail MATH115.” In the end, I did pass. I felt very good about achieving that goal.

    I almost forgot this way of thinking honestly, with how some things are going.
    Thank you for reminding me about the growth mindset. I’ll definitely hold onto it now.

  • Hmmm, college professors and students tend to lean more left? Maybe it’s cause they’re more educated and don’t blindly accept lies

  • I am so lucky being involve with this kind of positivity. It feels like I got an opportunity to have a head start. Btw, I am 16 years old. And I promise!! I’ll be a successful guy before 20.

  • Speech begins with (in my opinion) a false dilemma/straw man.. most don’t say “You have to be smart to succeed.” I think most know and say, “If you try hard you will succeed,” which (to me) is accurate.

  • I need to make more ‘Right Effort’ in a few areas… “Success or failure, gain or loss, must, therefore, depend upon man’s own exertions. The more he striveth, the greater will be his progress.” Baha’i Faith

  • This is so helpful when considering student success! Success is not just about intelligence; students begin to become successful when they invest the effort in themselves and their work. Great tips!

  • I never used my college degree in my work. I managed businesses while going to college and made almost as much money per hour as when I graduated. During my time in college I learned far more at work than I did in college. BUT, college started me down the road of educating myself and that was far more important in my life. I will never know if I might have given myself such a head start by full time working instead of going to university but in that I worked over 30 hours a week and graduated with no debt I do not give it much thought.

  • My iiser enterance exam is in 10 day. I believe myself. I will definately clear this exam. I will get admission in my dream college.

  • OMG!!! This concept is the whole truth. Although I receive good grades in college, I am far from smart. I have been putting in effort all this time. Thank you for sharing this video. Thank you for blessing us with your knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. The key is putting forth the effort. Question, did you ever get your dream house & car your dad told you that you can have one day? I hope so!

  • If somebody could offer advice:
    Whenever college gets brought up, my parents (and plenty of others) say that just having a college degree will boost my paycheck, in response to me saying I don’t find it necessary. I haven’t looked into a lot about college but so far I don’t see it necessary for me. And I frankly find it hard to believe that just having the degree will instantly boost my pay regardless of anything else. If it does boost my pay, is it worth it to spend 4 more years doing something I hate, when I could maybe advance in my career?

    (For context, I’m 17, and I’m very passionate about working in emergency medical services. So much so, I WILL become an EMT as soon as I graduate HS this year, after my 18th birthday. College just seems like a “detour” to my “career ambitions” just like what was said in the video.)


  • He goes to my shul and I love him beyond belief— his family is wonderful, and he is such an amazing person. Like, however awesome he is in this video, he is better in real life… one of the most genuinely kind people I know. CBSCS pride!

  • It might seem to be very simple and obvious video. But I was thinking about it recently.
    In my life I have never been confident. In a way that I would not be able to be successful in my life. I mean… even to be able to learn another language.. ( look at me now! I speak 4 languages )
    I totally didn’t believe in myself…. But more I did the things, than more I got an understanding that I can do EVERYTHING!! Like really everything! I didn’t need to have a talent or something. I just had to want it strong and to have a determination.
    It is impressive that you get so obvious things only when u get older and you get experience and only after all things… that you push yourself though.
    Like really push. Because you don’t believe in yourself, but you still push. And push and push! And only when you get what you were pushing yourself for, you understand WHAT was actually the reason why you got it at the end.
    For example. I have never been good with math. I mean… I was always thinking that I just don’t have a talent and that’s it! There is nothing to talk about. BUT! When I am doing math now…Yes, It seems unbearable! Impossible! Especially, after so many years I didn’t study it.. but I remind myself all the time… that it depends only on my effort and NOTHING ELSE. It is only ME who decides if I WANT or NOT. ��

  • I’d 100% be down with free college, provided it’s available to the top 10% of students in a combination of entrance exams and marks, that way the best and brightest always have a way to get to college, even if they don’t have the financial means. The others can pick up the slack if they choose to go

  • Excellent Video! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you ever tried Benadison Mysterious Breakthrough (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good exclusive guide for eliminating your limiting beliefs without the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my old buddy Taylor finally got excellent results with it.

  • The real truth is college-educated employees file grievances and lawsuits against their employers. That’s why employers don’t hire them because they’re afraid of ending up in court.
