Anne-Sophie Kim in her article, “Lack of Sleep Hurts Student Health”, does a survey with college students in which she asks what the students are giving up their sleep for. Eighty-seven percent of the responts said they gave up sleep to finish homework while another fifty-eight percent gave up sleep to study for a test.

They sleep for about 8-10 hours during the night and their routine would be set. Since the baby would have started solids, he/she would be able to sleep through the night without feeling hungry. Tip Although babies start eating solids by 6 months, they may still need to be caressed while going to sleep.
First, after I got into the habit of staying up, I often felt sleepy and sometimes lacked concentration during the daytime. Second, I missed the time when I still maintained the habit of not staying up. During that period, I was more energetic and I could handle my workload better because of enhanced concentration capability. Since at the beginning of the semester I usually spent more than one hour on mobile phone before sleep, my general strategy was to reduce the using time by 10 minutes per day. To achieve this goal, I did self-monitoring on a daily basis in order to remind me aware of my problematic behavior and my progress.

Once I actually slept in until 1pm on a school day! This meant that I had missed most of my classes that day, which in turn mean thtat I was behind in my class.

After the student arrives at home, they most likely have a few hours worth of homework to do.

Some days I wish to get hours of sleep, I can sleep for 9 hours and still manage to not want to get out of bed.
