From student debt to future jobs, there is plenty to worry about after college graduation. But amidst all the uncertain chaos is some good news: sleep after graduation will get better.

 

It’s no secret that college students often have crazy sleep schedules. From late night parties to all night study sessions, maintaining a healthy sleep schedule can be hard.

One of the biggest challenges to getting the proper amount of sleep during college is a different schedule daily. From internships starting at 9am one day to psychology lectures starting at noon the next, body clocks are thrown all out of whack in college. Students almost never wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day.

Luckily, most grads will end up with a 9-5 job 5 days a week. While the monotony may not appeal to some, the consistent hours will help set your body’s natural clock. After waking up at the same time and going to bed at roughly the same time every night, soon it will become natural; you may not even need an alarm. And pretty soon, you'll be waking up at 8 AM on a Sunday 😱. 

Sleeping in one day and getting up early the next can make it harder to wake up, but when you are forced to be up at the same time, waking up becomes easier. It also becomes easier to fall asleep.

So as you’re nodding off studying for your final final this year, remember that soon your slumber will get better.
