    I think you bring up a very point, especially for college students. I know that many students constantly stay up entire nights working on projects or papers, and I am not entirely innocent. We often forget that getting enough sleep is just as as completing required assignments. I think one of the fundamental ways to avoid sleep deprivation and thus decreased productivity is to be self-disciplined and not leave large amounts of work until late at night. This prevents people from ever having to choose between working and sleeping.

    And drinking more water than you need is bad, not good, for your kidneys. Your body plumbing – it need or benefit from “flushing out” – a chemical plant. And like all chemical processes a pretty narrow range of tolerances within which everything works well. More better.
