Sleep! Who needs it?

The answer is: YOU! With the ‘YOU’ being college students!

As an academic advisor, one of the tips for being a productive student, I frequently give to students is: get at least eight (8) hours of sleep each night! I realize hearing these words from an adult means they are often dismissed, so here is your opportunity to learn about the importance of sleep, from a student at Western New England University, Bobby Caruso. Here is Bobby’s published work in the Huff Post’s ‘The Third Metric’ which has a terrific tag line of “Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power.”

Bobby writes: In the fall of my sophomore year, I was working 6 jobs. People would joke with me about how I did it all, and my common response would be “Who needs sleep?” or “There ain’t no rest for the wicked.” But why is that cool? Why is it, that we admire and aspire to sleep little.

I found the humor used in this article entertaining, but caution, foul language is used!
