About the the Refresh program

Refresh is a new program from Cornell Health, available to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.

This eight-week, evidence-based self-help program delivers important information and outlines strategies that have been proven to help improve college students’ sleep. 

When you join the Refresh program, you will receive a weekly message for eight weeks containing information and materials on the following topics:

  • The physiology of sleep
  • Sleep hygiene 
  • A conducive sleep environment
  • Relaxation strategies
  • Mindfulness strategies
  • Cognitive strategies
  • Keeping track of your sleep to improve your sleep

You will be asked to spend approximately 10-20 minutes each week reviewing the information and practice tips you receive, which you are encouraged to put into practice to improve your sleep.
