The Sleep Challenge

Earn prizes for sleeping by participating in the Sleep Challenge! Health Promotion Services and the Student Health Advocates challenge UC San Diego students to get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep each night for 3 weeks: January 29, 2018 - February 17, 2018.

Since sleep can affect mood, learning and memory functions, as well as your immune system, it is important to establish good sleep habits. By the end of this challenge we hope you will develop a habit of sleeping 7-9 hours consistently each night.  You should see the benefits of improved memory, cognitive and academic performance, along with overall improved well-being. Sign-up and participate in the Sleep Challenge to be entered to win prizes!

What do I have to do?

  • Take the College Sleep Questionnaire to understand your current sleep pattern. This 15-minute online tool will assess
    9 parameters of sleep and at completion, you will receive a tailored report of your results.

  • Aim to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night from January 29, 2018 through February 17, 2018.
  • Track the number of hours you sleep get each night. You can download a sleep app or just keep track on your own.
  • To be entered to win prizes, complete a short survey about your sleep at the end of each week for 3 weeks. Even if you don't meet the goal of 7-9 hours of sleep each night, you can still be entered to win prizes as long as you complete the survey.

What are the prizes?

  • $20 VISA gift cards
  • Sun God Says... shirts
  • Eye masks
