Easel 65: Individual Sleep Factors and Consequences in College Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

College is a major transitional period in the development of health behaviors that will continue on throughout life. Studies have uncovered various factors affecting sleep patterns, particularly in this age group. College students’ schedules are heavily influenced by their many commitments both academically and extracurricularly. These along with other factors such as natural circadian rhythms, personality, interpersonal styles, and phone use as well as attachment style can be detrimental to both sleep quality and quantity, resulting in a wide array of ramifications towards the individual’s health and wellbeing. We propose a literature review on studies showing the causes and effects of insufficient sleep, with particular focus on the 18-22 age group. We would like to display this in a poster format showing the inputs and outcomes of inadequate sleep including poor academic performance, increased anxiety and depression, driving distraction, strain on social relationships, as well as basic physiological wellbeing.
