During the school year I would not go to bed until later at night because I was never tired until then because of the work I had been doing for classes. Now that it is summer and I don’t have nearly as much homework to be doing and I don’t have classes to be attending daily, I find myself able to sleep a lot earlier than during the school year.
As a college student I feel as though I do get a decent amount of sleep, but not as much as I should be getting. I think that my sleep habits could be better and I could manage my time differently so that I can get more sleep, while also succeeding academically. My sleep schedule during the school year was definitely much different than my current sleep schedule.
During the summer time I find myself going to sleep a lot earlier and getting to sleep for a higher number of hours than I did during the school year. I think that an ideal number of hours of sleep a college student should be getting is somewhere around 8 hours because then they wake up more refreshed and then are less likely to be taking naps during the day, wasting time that they could be using to study.
I think that one way I could improve my sleeping habits would be to take less naps during the day and spend more time doing homework and studying, rather than sleeping. This would allow me to sleep more at night and get the correct amount of sleep that I need, rather than getting small bursts of sleep during the day and not a lot at night.
