Why do I have low energy at college?

Daphne Oz
Health Education
Remember that depression, anxiety, and stress -- which you may experience during your adjustment from home to college life -- all bring your energy level down. Sleep habits are never great at college, but try to get seven to eight hours of good-quality sleep a night or you may put your body at serious risk for infection and illness, not to mention looking a bit haggard. Make sure you find some balance between your social and academic lives so that you have time to sleep. A few too many nights out with friends is all you need to send you over the edge into zombieland.
