Refresh Sleep Program

It's probably no surprise to anyone that studies have found college students to be one of the most sleep-deprived populations. Sleep deprivation can affect important aspects of your mind and body such as your mood, energy, ability to learn, memory, good judgment, reaction time and efficiency...

If you're looking to improve your sleep habits, eliminate daytime sleepiness, and to fall asleep easily, as well as sleep soundly through the night - then the Refresh Sleep Program is here for you! Please contact Coe Health Services if you are interested in participating in this 8-week self-guided program. Participation includes receiving a free sleep kit, in addition to weekly emails with helpful sleep tips, daily sleep logs, and information on circadian rhythms and much more!

Helpful Sleep Tips at a glance...

  • Stop using technology 30 minutes prior to bedtime. This means no cell phone, computer, laptop, video games, television.
  • Try to avoid caffeine after 3pm.
  • Exercise daily - even a 30 minute walk can reap benefits! But avoid exercise three hours before bedtime, as this can result in difficulty falling asleep.
  • Avoid all-nighters! Research has shown that a good nights sleep is more beneficial than cramming all night long.
