Insomnia is a very common problem for many students. Anxiety and heightened emotions may significantly interfere with sleep. Because many students lack a structured sleep-wake cycle, sleeping problems are exacerbated in the college environment. Lack of sleep can lead to irritability and difficulty concentrating.

Getting into a structured sleep schedule is the most effective way to treat insomnia. If one is able to follow the rules of healthy sleep habits, one can expect their sleep to dramatically improve. Please read the suggestions on healthy sleep habits provided by the National Sleep Foundation.
