Our Wellness Wednesday Facebook Live and Podcast Series is back again for
our newest edition covering stress management! As college students, experiencing
stress is something we all have in common. Through a poll conducted by the
Associated Press and MTVu, 85% of college students reported daily stress in 2009.
This number has been reportedly increasing since the time our parents were in
school, but imagine what that figure could look like today, 8 years later. With
everything going on in our lives from school to work, stress is nearly unavoidable
and prolonged periods of stress have been linked to increased rates of depression,
anxiety, and cardiovascular disease. So, finding ways to manage stress is extremely
important for college students across the nation.
We cordially invite you to our Wellness Wednesday Pajama Party Sleep Talk! This round table features students who suffer from sleep paralysis, insomnia, the sleep schedule of a graduate student and other sleep related issues/topics. As a special treat we invited Anupama Tiwari, MD who is a Sleep Specialist at ECU’s Brody School of Medicine to explain the importance of sleep for college students.
Did you know that pulling an all-nighter is equivalent to being legally drunk? “If you’ve been awake for 24 hours, your performance is as impaired as if you were legally drunk and had a 0.1 BAC,” said Dr. Charles Czeisler, chairman of the board of the National Sleep Foundation and chief of sleep medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Snoozed during our Wellness Wednesday Sleep Talk? CRW and WZMB partnered together to create a Wellness Wednesday Podcast featured every Wednesday! Listen to an array of health and wellness topics specifically geared toward college students just like us!
Fun Fact: Sleep deprivation, as mentioned, impairs people’s ability to function normally throughout the day. This causes students, in particular, to pay less attention to classes. That’s why students with sleep deprivation were found to have lower GPAs, since it impairs their ability to concentrate, retain information and learn.
