Pregunta y Respuesta: Sleep
Hola! So I have decided to post three theme-based question and answer (or pregunta y respuesta) articles. See below for more!
1) Do you sleep at Dartmouth? Why?
Duh! It’s needed. Really. How else could you tackle all the great opportunities at Dartmouth without energy to experience the Dartmouth life?
2) What inspired you to sleep at Dartmouth despite your desires to excel academically and devote all your time, even sleeping time, to learning?
In lieu of explaining why I choose to get 8 hours of sleep at Dartmouth, (with the exception of finals week and/or examination periods 🙂 ), I will summarize some important points from a Ted Talk. In becoming sleep deprived, one has poor judgment, loss of memory and is prone to more accidents and weight gain. Thus, sleep is important to me because it allows me to more efficaciously focus on and complete my academic work at Dartmouth College. Apart from academic benefits, sleeps helps me to stay alert to observe the beautiful things that surround me at Dartmouth as well.
3) What advice would you recommend to other Dartmouth students about how to institute an effective sleep schedule?
You need sleep every day so that you can have the full energy to reload and do your best at Dartmouth. Thus, watch this Ted talk for more motivation to sleep longer, particularly after 9 minutes 🙂 . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWULB9Aoopc
