Lolliot, PSYC 101 WT1 2023 ASSIGNMENT OBJECTIVES ASSIGNMENT WORTH: 15% of GRADE DUE DATE – PART 1 = 29 October 2023 DUE DATE – PART 2 = 12 November 2023 Let’s face it. We love sleeping. We spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping. The time that we spend asleep has a profound influence on the other 2/3 that we spend awake. In PSYC 101, we cover the importance of sleep, why we sleep, and why we dream. With much of what we cover in this course, you have first-hand experience with sleeping and its effects, but we may not always be aware of our sleep habits and the impact they have on our waking hours. In this project, I would like you to investigate the effects of sleep on your own life by keeping a sleep journal (on Canvas) for 7 days. The learning outcomes for this assignment are: • Apply concepts learned in class in consciousness to your own life. • Uncover and learn about the relationship between sleep, stress, and cognitive functioning. • Identify research-based strategies for improving your sleep quality. This assignment consists of two components: (1) The Diary Component and (2) The Write-up PART 1: THE DIARY COMPONENT (DUE: 29 October) What do I need to do? • For SEVEN consecutive days between 17 October and 29 October, you will need to keep a short diary of your sleep experiences. • For each day, you will need to complete one short journal entry by filling out the form found here: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e3OxiiYUFnFz5Zz • Once you have completed the diary entry, you will receive an e-mail with your answers. Please keep these safe as you will need them to complete Part 2 (see below). • These diary entries will take no longer than 5 minutes to complete IMPORTANT: Late diary entries will be penalized (see below)
Lolliot, PSYC 101 WT1 2023 PART 2: THE WRITE-UP (1000 words max; Due: 12 November) For this part, I would like you to analyse and reflect on your sleeping habits. To help with this, I would like you to compare your habits to those of your classmates (via the reported data in class) and to other university students in general). You can use the following questions / prompts to guide your analysis: • On average, for how long did you sleep? How much sleep do you need to feel awake? • Are you getting enough sleep and, if not, why are you not getting enough sleep? • When did/do you feel your most awake? • Do you notice any patterns between your sleep on your mood? • How do your sleeping habits compare to the average sleeping habits of the class and what is the relationship between sleep habits / hygiene and sleep quality? • According to the data, what are some of the consequences of lack of sleep? o Discuss how prevalent sleeping problems are within university students. Use a combination of the class data and published journal articles (like these: Lund, Reider, Whiting, & Richard, 2010; Schlarb, Friedrich, & Claßen, 2017) to help answer this question. What are some of the common causes of sleep issues in university students? • How could you improve your sleep hygiene? Regarding the last question, I would like you to research at least one technique that could be used to help one fall asleep. Include at least two references for your sleep technique to support your argument. One of them can be the reference I provide below. Below are some examples that you can choose from. You can, of course, research other techniques that do not appear on this list that could help one to fall asleep. • Listening to white noise o https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1389945704002242 • Forcing oneself to stay awake o https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/behavioural-and-cognitive-psychotherapy/article/initial-insomnia-and-paradoxical-intention-an-experimental-investigation-of-putative-mechanisms-using-subjective-and-actigraphic-measurement-of-sleep/D4631FDBB4640E0CF58FFBC17E8CCD98 • Wearing socks to bed o https://www.nature.com/articles/43366 • Listening to classical music o https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18426457 • Picture your favourite place o https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11863237

You are welcome to structure the essay how you feel works best. I find it generally easiest starting with a broad introduction (e.g., how important is sleep in general and how many people are not getting enough) before honing in on your data. Then you can end with offering possible broader solutions to the problem. This, however, is just a suggestion. 3. References. There is a small proportion of the marks that are dedicated to references. Please make sure you do use some references. See the resources below:
