Did You Know?: Can Sleep Boost Your Grades?
It's true. Better rested students get higher grades.
Thatís according to a study done by researchers at the University of Michigan. They surveyed more than 9,000 students and found a direct link between the amount of adequate sleep and higher grade point averages.
The researchers also found links between grade point average and television watching, computer time, gambling, alcohol and tobacco use, and stress. The more students reported doing these things, the lower their grades, on average. Stress is a particularly telling factor. Students who reported feeling stressed had lower GPAs than unstressed students.
The researchers claim their study reveals a strong correlation between college studentsí health and their academic success.
And now you know.
