Sleeping tips

Keep in sync with your body's natural sleep-wake cycle

 - Try to keep your sleeping times as constant as possible (so limit late night study sessions)

 - Try to nap 15-20 minutes max and only in the early afternoon

Control your exposure to light

 - Try to get as much daylight as possible in the morning and during the day

 - Try to limit your exposure to light (and thus screens) during the 1-2 hours before going to sleep

Exercise during the day

 - This will help you fall asleep later in the day

Be smart about what you eat and drink

 - Try to avoid a lot of food/drinks and mainly cafeïne in the evening

Wind down and clear your head

 - Try to relax and maybe do a non-stimulating activity such as reading

Create a good sleeping environment

 - Keep it cool, well ventilated and try to keep noise and light to a minimum
