As students, the earliest you can sleep is 11 am. With people playing loud songs, movies and social media distractions, sleeping early isn’t a normal thing for students. As harmless as it seems, this habit could be ruining you. You must change your sleep routine if you have these signs.

1.Having Trouble Concentrating in Class
We’ve all heard our lecturers’ advice to go to bed early and get plenty of rest before an exam or quizzes, but how often do we actually follow through with it? Research has shown that only getting a few hours of sleep the night before an exam can actually lead to a lower grade despite the extra hours spent cramming. It’s best to be well-rested for your exams than fall asleep while writing it.

2. Feeling More Awake After Checking Your Phone
Scrolling through social media feeds before falling asleep may seem like a great way to unwind at the end of a long day, but it’s actually stimulating your brain and keeping you awake longer. Even though scrolling through social media feeds may seem appealing, it’s best to wait till morning to avoid disrupting your body’s normal sleep cycle.

3. Needing Caffeine Throughout The Day.
Grabbing a cup of coffee during the day is one of the easiest ways to perk up before heading into your next class, but this can actually be a sign that you aren’t having the best night sleep. Caffeine, as well as alcohol, can worsen sleep quality.

4. Exercising Vigorously Before Bed
Although it is ideal to exercise for 30 minutes every day and this will likely ensure a good night’s sleep. Doing it right before bed is probably a bad idea. It causes difficulties as your body will be revved up when you should be winding down. Try to minimize aerobic exercise right before bedtime.

5. Eating a Large Meal Before Bed
There’s nothing like a full bladder or stomach to disrupt your sleep. Eating a large meal near bedtime may provoke heartburn symptoms when you lie down that can make you uncomfortable.

Let’s reduce some of that stress. Start sleeping well.
