A couple weeks ago, we posted about Holly Boettner, MPH, CHES at California State University, Long Beach, and her Sleep Awareness Week (March 2-8) events, designed to help students understand just how critical it is to get a good night's sleep. Getting good quality (and quantity) sleep can be difficult at any age -- but it's a special challenge for students living on a campus where something is always happening and somebody down the hall always seems to be awake all night. This plethora of constant noise seems to be present at every college -- and while it's definitely a colorful and exciting part of The College Experience, students just aren't getting the sleep they need.
Fortunately, Holly and CSU are working to educate students on sleep, why it's so important, and how to get more of it.
Check out these photos from the event! (We were happy to donate earplugs for Holly and her team to give away to students who stopped by her booth.)
Attached are two pictures from our table today. I also posted the pictures/information on our social media accounts... The outreach was very successful your earplugs were prizes for our “wheel trivia game”.
We are planning to continue our Sleep Awareness outreach in the future. We realize the importance of sleep awareness and educating our students on better sleep habits. Plus, providing ear plugs to the students always helps!
Thank you, Holly, for letting us help you get the word out about how important it is to get a good night's sleep!
If you want to get more sleep, and better quality sleep, check out our Sleeping With Snoring Checklist for some helpful tips and advice.
Until next time, be safe and love your ears.
