Sleep is a powerful bodily function. It restores, rejuvenates, and energizes the body and brain. The third of your life you spend asleep profoundly influences the other two-thirds of your awake life. Healthy sleep increases your energy levels, productivity, academic performance, and overall health while simultaneously helping regulate body weight, mood, and creativity.
Most of the work related to sleep at Health Promotion, Resilience, and Violence Prevention focuses on education. Each semester, our Sleep Team leads the Sleep Challenge in which students set sleep goals and receive prizes for working towards them over the course of 20-30 days. Aside from running the Sleep Challenge, the Sleep Team also partners with Residence Life and presents helpful sleep tips and behaviors to residence halls.
