  • Online Recovery Information (pdf)
  • Create a productive study space:
    • Choose a place that is quiet and spacious for your supplies (laptop, books, etc.) 
    • Make your space comfortable (but not too comfortable)-avoid working on your bed or couch because that will make concentration difficult  
    • Opt for a space with plenty of natural light  
    • Create a schedule for studying and remember to take breaks 
  • Create a soothing bedtime routine which can include:
    • Avoid bright light or the blue light of your cell phone prior to getting ready for bed 
    • Lighting a soothing candle 
    • Spraying your pillow with aromatherapy sleep mist (or another relaxing scent) 
    • Make the room dark, quiet and comfortable (not too hot, not too cold) 
    • Wind down away from electronics, which greatly impact your ability to fall and stay asleep. This can include stretching, meditating, or reading 
    • Charge electronics away from your bed/sleep area 
    • Goal: maintain a sleep routine that involves going to sleep and waking up around the same time each day.  If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, avoid napping during the day, it can influence your sleep routine. 
    • Avoid: alcohol, caffeine, vaping, or other substances, along with heavy meals in the evening
    • Move your body. Be active in a way that feels good to you, this helps positively impact your sleep.
