How Online Students Can Get Better Sleep

Online education and improved sleep should go hand in hand, right? After all, once you take the commute out of school, every student gains back a little bit of time in the morning. I know I would use it for a few extra minutes of snooze time. Speaking frankly, I’ve been motivated to telecommute for my entire adult life just to grab those extra minutes of snooze every day. Seems silly, but all those glorious extra seconds of early morning rest can really add up. You know what else adds up? Sleep deprivation. And apparently, we’re all drowning in it, especially online students.

But online education is also a tremendously convenient and valuable option for countless students. So what can we do to improve our sleep habits so that we can actually make the most of remote learning?
