Should You Sleep or Study All Night? You’ll Hate the Truth

Should You Sleep or Study All Night? You’ll Hate the Truth

We’ve all been there: the anxiety kicks in the day prior to a rather frightening examination. And now you’re asking yourself, should I sleep or study all night?

Perhaps it isn’t even a particularly threatening exam, but you simply feel obliged to cram in the facts.

However, this is not necessarily the way to go. Further into this article, I’ll soon show you this with a brief story of my experience.

Staying up late and studying is, in fact, the perfect recipe for academic failure.

My Top 10 Ways to Prevent Burnout That Will Make You Remarkable

My Top 10 Ways to Prevent Burnout That Will Make You Remarkable

Burnout is a mission-critical issue. However, luck has it that there are ways to prevent burnout before you succumb to your fatigue.

To clarify, it is the unfortunate result of overworking and excessively exerting barrels of willpower: the mental state whereby you are magically unable to be the most productive person you can be.

Therefore, you should manage your time wisely such that burnout is a mere non-issue.

Otherwise, you are left guessing how long you slept based on when you got into bed and when you awoke. Obviously, this will produce inevitable inaccuracies regarding the under/overestimation of the time it takes for you to get to sleep.

Make sure that you get enough good sleep

Sure, while you could take the average time (about fourteen minutes or so), it’s merely an average. In other words, everyone is different, so you need to find out your sleep patterns specifically.

Moreover, even if you can accurately estimate how long you’ve slept, that’s still not the whole story. For instance, there is no concrete indication of your quality of sleep.

Even if you get plenty of time in bed, that does not mean that your sleep quality is optimal.

Sleep stages—the phases of sleep we go through each night—also play a key role in all of this. And it’s important that you have an awareness of it.

Before we begin looking at a sleep tracking smartwatch, let’s first see how they can benefit you.
