Hard work and sleepless nights are the synonyms of student life, especially during exam times. Student life is a cluster of syllabus, exams, assignments and long study hours. Some prefer to wake up at the break of the sunray and study the whole day while some like to study under the twinkling stars. Either the early birds or night riders they all have to face one problem- Sleep deprivation. The sacrifice of good sleep for better grades. Many of you can relate to this either you are a parent or student. Everyone would agree that yes, we have sacrificed our sleep to revise that part of the topic that had probability to appear in exams. It is truly said there is no gain without pain. One needs to work hard to get good grades but working smart will get you better grades for sure. In this blog, we will be exploring some night study hacks that will save you from sleep deprivation like a pro!

Why studying at night is a wise decision?

Have you ever wondered why the owl is called wisest of all? It is so because he is the bird of night. At night there are minimum distractions due to sound environment. It increases the chance of focused learning that helps the student to learn better. Without distraction, the child is more attentive and alert towards what he is studying thus helping him getting better with retention. Also if the student studies at night he has an ample amount of time to study the way he wants without any human interference because in the morning intentionally or unintentionally you get distracted by multiple activities. In the night, the student can conveniently take online tutoring classes or do assignments as per his convenience. TutorEye provides tuition classes 24x7 on the demand of the student. Thus studying in the night with complete focus and personal attention is always a win-win situation!
One interesting finding was discovered by British researchers where they have found that early risers have higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, than those who like to sleep late. The cortisol levels of early risers continue to remain high throughout the day, not just during the morning. This means early risers are more stressed about exams than night owls. Since night owls are calmer, they can get work done more efficiently, instead of wasting time and panicking. But the problem is that students often make themselves sleep deprived in order to study late at night. Thus, affecting their health, which is not a good thing.

Ill effects of sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation happens to be in a student when he gets less sleep than he needs to feel freshened up and ready for the next day. And let us all agree that we cannot question the importance of adequate sleep for the healthy functioning of the brain where we can not expect a machine like mobile to work without charging!
When you are a student, you are in a very vulnerable phase that has to be a blend of a healthy body for the growing age and fresh mind to learn and study because the brain is at the most pressure and use in your student life where you are continuously learning and retaining information in your brain. If you are sleep deprived then you -
• Loose brain efficiency with each hour of sleep deprivation
• Easily forget what you learned
• Reduced focus
• May get impulsive behavioral patterns
• Feel fatigue all the time

Thus studying late in the night is good but sleep deprivation is bad. Infact, very bad
