Abstract/Description

According to Healthy People 2020, over 30% of students around the world are not receiving 8 or more hours of sleep every night. Sleep health is becoming a rising issue in public health and health sciences due to how it affects a person’s well-being, such as mental health, and physical health. In addition, sleep hygiene plays a big role as there are several things that affect the way people sleep. Students today do not realize how important sleep is and will prioritize it after school work, responsibilities at home, and socializing. Throughout this podcast, I will explain how college students prioritizing sleep last negatively affects their well-being.

The reason for my podcast is to get the information out on why sleep is important, frankly because college students do not know how important it is. There are various reasons why people choose not to sleep: there is not enough time in a day, academics come first, or making money is more important. However, there are valid studies about time managing academics, working part time, and how physical fitness are all correlated to how well you sleep. With several studies showing why sleep can benefit a person and why lack of sleep causes consequences, it will become clear why everyone should start taking better care of their sleep health.
