When discussing assignments, projects, and exams, remind students that a good night’s sleep supports their success.
When setting due dates for assignments, projects and exams, set the deadline for completion in the afternoon or evening. If you set the deadline for late night, many students will stay awake into the wee hours of the night, making it hard to unwinding for a good night’s sleep.
Take breaks during long lectures and exams.
Encourage students to get up and walk around. This will get their blood flowing and enhance brain function for the remainder of the class.
Show health and wellness videos between classes.
Use the time between classes to air videos about health and wellness, and other student success information.
Assign students to participate in online courses outlined on this website.
Make assignments addressing health and wellness topics relevant to your class.
Consider having students research a relevant wellness topic for a paper, presentation or group project.
