Better sleep for better achievements 

Work or studies put a lot of pressure on us. People are often not getting enough sleep. Either because of achievements or projects we have to finish or because our minds are full of thoughts and so it is impossible to fall asleep quickly and peacefully. 

But being tired makes it hard to focus the next day. How many of us have already studied an exam the whole night, then woke up completely tired and not succeeding the exam because you just want to sleep and can’t focus? A good quality of sleep is essential to better your achievements. 

Cramming is not a good idea to study. And in addition to this, it provides you more stress because you are facing a big amount of information that you have to remember in a very short time. To better study and work, better your sleep. We recommend you to : 

  • Stick to a sleep schedule. Being regular in the hours you sleep and wake up will better your capacities. 
  • Don’t work at the last minute. This provides you stress and even though you feel like you are remembering this big amount of information, it is more likely to be forgotten than if you studied a few hours every day. 
  • Understand how your amount of sleep impacts your attitude and behaviours. To keep yourself motivated and full of energy, try to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night.
  • We are exposed to screens the whole day. Try to avoid them while having time for yourself. Prioritize activities that are not linked with screens.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol. They both interfere with natural sleep rhythm.

Sleep disorders caused by cramming won’t help you in long-term results and your achievements won’t probably be as good as you expected them to be. 

If working can provide you tiredness, don’t forget that studying just an hour can go fast if you focus on it, and that then you still have time to go out with your friends for a walk or even a drink. The biggest enemy when it comes to sleep is generally procrastinating and screens. 

Many opportunities to better our sleep and our achievements are offered to us nowadays. It is just up to us to decide either we want to make it work or keep on cramming and getting stress on our minds. Better sleep, better achievements, but we can also say better sleep, better mental health.
