High pressure to perform, exam nerves, tight deadlines or final uncertainties quickly lead to stress during a course of study. Students often sleep poorly or too little and cannot sufficiently regenerate their body and psyche. This can affect their concentration, performance and eating habits in the short term and have negative effects on their health and well-being in the long term. Sleep is also essential for the human learning and memory processes and is therefore of great importance, especially during studies.
Lack of sleep can have a negative impact on our memory and learning ability. Sufficient and restful sleep, on the other hand, improves concentration and learning performance and is fundamental for our performance. smartsleep® was therefore developed especially for the night and supports the body at the crucial time with important vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
A regular sleep-wake rhythm
At least during the week and during the exam period, you should go to bed and get up at similar times so that your body gets used to a regular structure. Recommended. Also recommended is 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
Avoid stress in the evening
Demanding and long study sessions in the evening are stressful. Therefore, before going to bed, consciously establish a relaxed routine and avoid bright screen light.
Separate your study and sleep environments
When preparing for exams at home, your study area should ideally be away from your sleeping environment. If that's not possible, make sure you have fixed study times and consciously separate them from rest times.
A quiet and dark room with a cool temperature (around 18° C) is ideal and promotes sleep. Also make sure that there is a good supply of oxygen (air the room before sleeping).
Eat light and balanced
A balanced diet keeps you healthy and provides you with important nutrients. Avoid high-fat meals before going to bed, as these greatly stimulate digestion, making it harder to fall asleep.
Reduce wakefulness in the evening
Foods containing caffeine should be taboo 3-4 hours before bedtime, because caffeine stimulates the nervous system and prevents you from falling asleep and staying asleep.
