Getting enough sleep

We all know that sleep is an indispensable part of life. However, many overlook it, especially those who take their energy for granted by increasing their tolerance rather than getting a good night's rest. This lockdown has caused most students not to need to wake up as early; since they have the freedom to wake up right before class starts, which provides them with an excuse to sleep late, sometimes even until dawn.


Your sleep schedule should be as mighty as Thor because if you're not sleeping like the God of Thunder himself then you're going to turn into the sloth-like version of Thor in Avengers: Endgame. According to SleepFoundation.org, lack of sleep can cause depression and stress that leads to an unstable change of mood and aggression. Suggestions that can assist in keeping these worries at bay are scheduling a fixed time for bedtime. Having a consistent pre-bed routine that is relaxing can help those who have difficulty sleeping to go to bed earlier.
