When tests, projects, and papers are upon us, we always think we can give up sleep “for awhile.” Yet most of us live in a constant state of sleep deprivation, not realizing what a profound negative impact it has on our lives. Getting enough sleep is vital for our health and overall quality of life. Participants in this session will learn the importance of sleep and tips for good sleep habits.
