The Power Of Sleep

As midterms are soon approaching, I am reminded how sleep deprived I felt when I was a college student during exam time.  Health officials are realizing that healthy sleep habits are a potential cure for what ails the typically frazzled college student:   Some studies have found that students getting adequate sleep average a full letter grade higher than their sleep deprived peers.
