Sleep quantity and quality are important for physical and mental health. Sleep is hindered by high tension/stress but can be improved through mindfulness and lifestyle habits. However, these relationships have not been explored in college students who may be at high risk. The purpose of this project is to investigate the relationships between objective sleep quantity and self-report measures of sleep quality, perceived stress, sleep hygiene, and mindfulness in healthy college students. Self-report and objective sleep assessments are recommended to understand sleep patterns. Participants will wear wrist-worn sleep trackers (ActiGraph GT9X) for 7-nights to quantify sleep and then complete the International Physical Activity Questionnaire, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, Perceived Stress Scale, Sleep Hygiene Index, and Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale. Spearman’s rank order correlations will be performed to identify strength and direction of relationships. We hypothesize that poor sleep quantity in college students will be associated with poor mindset characteristics.
