Being a college student definitely has its fun moments. Much of the college experience is glorified by the media and people telling those younger than them that college is going to be the best four years of their lives. For many students, studies, personal health, and sleep can be put on the back burner in order to participate in those experiences that people strive to have in college.
But, what happens when your biological clock, sleep schedule, and mental health is affected by the constant nights of drinking too many dirty Shirley’s, studying all night with a double shot of espresso added to 3 cups of coffee, and eating a ton of sodium-rich foods in the dining hall before you go to bed?
Unfortunately for many students, their sleep schedules get affected by all of these different scenarios and even when your body is completely exhausted, it can still be difficult to get a full or even just a decent night of sleep. So, when it comes the time to dial back on the late-night pizzas, constant drinking of sugary, alcoholic beverages, and actually trying to allow yourself to get some much-needed sleep, there are some external factors that will be beneficial to facilitating the sleeping process.
One factor is Melatonin. Melatonin is a chemical in your brain that naturally facilitates your sleep cycle. By taking a small dose of Melatonin before going to sleep, your chances of falling asleep more rapidly and easily greatly increase. You can find all natural Melatonin tablets at any grocery store or pharmacy.
