Refresh Sleep

Many students struggle to get a good night’s sleep and poor sleep at night can cause problems in the daylight. Some issues caused by lack of sleep include the inability to focus, memory impairment, serious health risks and increased stress and anxiety, just to name a few.

Our Refresh Sleep program aims to provide college and graduate students with the skills and strategies to achieve more restful nights. Once each quarter's program begins, you will receive a weekly email for 7 weeks that has an attached PDF with important information, tips and tricks that have been proven to help improve your sleep. Students are encouraged to spend at least 30 minutes per week with the program information.

    Some information that is included:
  • Physiology of sleep
  • Sleep Hygiene
  • Relaxation training
  • Mindfulness training
  • Cognitive strategies
  • Daily sleep logs

If you missed the winter quarter Refresh registration deadline, don't fret! We have recently opened a second registration for Refresh Sleep due to high demand. Please register here for the second winter session of our Refresh Sleep program which will begin on January 30, 2018.
