Coming to college means late nights, spontaneous outings and authority over your own schedules, right? Though these are some joys of college, it can also be tiring to live without structure in our lives. Late nights and little sleep can bring you laughs, but in excess they also can leave you exhausted and in poor physical health. Spontaneity and changing schedules let you have some unforgettable memories, but in the long run, too much spontaneity may cause you to miss responsibilities.
Forming a routine is one of the most proactive ways to structure your day around what is most important to you. Research shows that routine helps reduce stress, improve sleep and overall physical health as well as boosting motivation and self-esteem. During college, your schedule and responsibilities might shift frequently - creating a routine can add stability to help you thrive.
