Judy - one way I got through my students is the idea of leveling up. If you stay up late to level up your online character, what effect is that having to your real world body?

Additionally the excess blue light they absorb (http://www.sleepxp.com/what-are-the-effects-of-blue-light) from all their phone and computer screens disrupts their sleep rhythms, so is it worth it the cost? "Yeah but I sleep it on Saturdays " isn't the answer - it's about the quality of sleep and addressing the root cause of the issue.

Excellent points! Thanks
