Sleep-related problems detrimental to sleep quality have been identified in millions of people across the United States. Studies have found that the subsection of the population labeled as college students, due to either the setting or other connected environmental factors, exhibit one the highest prevalence’s of these problems, roughly at 73% on college settings. Prior studies have utilized interventions focused around educational and behavior change components, the current study chose to also examine the role that motivation, specifically through motivational stages, may have on the outcomes of sleep hygiene and sleep quality variables following the conclusion of a sleep intervention program. Participants from a private university completed several self-report measures online at three distinct phases of testing throughout the timeframe of the study. A mixed factorial analysis did not yield significant differences across the variable of sleep hygiene, but did demonstrate a significant interaction effect with the variable of sleep quality. Overall, it was found that motivation may play a role in influencing specific variables’ behavior change programs.
