Students often don’t get enough sleep because they go to sleep late and wake up early and sometimes have a hard time falling asleep. 60 percent of college students report that they are dragging, tired and sleepy because they’re sleep deprived, according to a study by nature and science of sleep.

Procrastination can affect a student’s mental health and well-being. According to a study by the association for psychological science, at the beginning of the semester students who procrastinate have lower stress and are less prone to mental illnesses than non-procrastinators. However, later in the semester they have higher stress levels and are more prone to mental illnesses. You should prepare yourself for an assignment and get it done in a timely manner and give yourself an incentive to finish early.

Skipping meals

Skipping meals

Because college students are always in class and on the go, skipping meals happens a lot. Many college students don’t know that skipping meals is bad for their health. Skipping meals causes you to be irritable, confused and weak. It can also cause a slowing of your metabolism which makes it hard to lose weight. To fix this you should eat protein snacks like granola bars that you can keep in your backpack. This helps make things easier to eat on the go.
