(HealthDay News) -- Between studying and socializing at all hours, college students often struggle with a lack of sleep and fatigue.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions:

  • Don't rely on caffeine, nicotine and other stimulants, as they can impact your sleep even hours later.
  • Create a good environment for sleep, such as turning off bright lights and drowning out loud noise.
  • Schedule waking and bedtime hours, and stick to your schedule during the week and on weekends.
  • Talk to a doctor if you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
  • Avoid staying up all night to study.
