If you’re a true college student, that means you’re not getting much sleep in general. It’s hard to get up in the mornings due to those late nights spent pouring over your textbooks and cramming seemingly endless information into your brain. At the same time, it’s hard to go to bed at night — you’re completely exhausted and ready to sleep, but you know that you need all the time you have to prepare for that important exam in the morning. So really, you’re here reading this post nodding your head in agreement that there’s basically no time to catch up on sleep with the exception of those sweet, sweet weekends. Even then, you’re probably up and at it studying after you’ve achieved those ideal eight hours of sleep.

Sure, the fact that our Kent apartments are literally located right across the street from Kent State University means that it won’t take long to get to class when you’ve overslept, but we’re confident that you’ll embrace some of the benefits of being a morning person.
More Energy Throughout The Day
So, why should you even consider sacrificing those precious minutes of sleep each morning? When you don’t sleep away the majority of the morning, you might find that you have more daily energy. Indeed, it’ll take just a little less coffee in the morning to get you going, and you actually find yourself awake and ready to go when your first class starts. If you’re attending class but you’re showing up as a mostly-asleep zombie, does that really count? Make your time in class count by waking up earlier and actually being awake and ready to learn.
Exercising In The Morning As A Wakefulness Boost
Our Kent apartments must be honest, here: waking up early and going on a run or hitting the gym first thing in the morning isn’t exactly “fun” or even remotely enjoyable. In fact, it’s probably going to be pretty miserable. However, when you’ve finished with that workout or that morning run, you’re going to feel naturally awake, accomplished, and ready to tackle the day — before your classes have even started! Exercising in the morning is a great way to put yourself in a good mood as well as a productive mindset. Plus, you can carry this rewarding feeling with you all day, knowing that you’ve already put in all of the hard, physical work. Now, it’s time to buckle down mentally and focus on exercising your mind.
Scaling Back Your Bedtime
Waking up early has its incredible benefits, but we don’t recommend sacrificing healthy amounts of sleep. Ideally, you should still be shooting for seven and a half to eight hours of sleep each night. To wake up early and still feel optimally rested, this means that you’ll have to put forth some discipline and hit the hay just a little bit earlier each night. Don’t expect your body to transition overnight, but consciously getting to bed earlier will help facilitate your productivity and academic comprehension the next day.
