Catch up on your sleep this long weekend. Remember to get no less than 7 hours of sleep per night every week. If your body is sleep deprived from the last three weeks because you have been sleeping less than 7 hours per night, now is the time to re-charge. Then, make sure you get proper sleep hours for the remainder of the semester.
