Personal Daily Sleep Diary
A daily sleep diary is a way for you and your health care provider to learn more about your sleep. A sleep diary is a vital part of changing your sleep patterns. A sleep diary can help you both see:
What your sleep and wake times are
How much sleep you’re actually getting
How daily habits may affect your sleep
What changes you can make to your sleep habits
How those changes affect the quality of your sleep
If you should be tested for a sleep disorder
Tips for Filling Out Your Sleep Diary
It’s important to fill out a sleep diary every day. This way, your health care provider can track your sleep patterns over time. It’s best to do it first thing in the morning. It can be very hard to remember details after a day or two. Your information does not need to be perfect. Just do the best you can at writing down estimated times and details.
Here is a sample of what your personal daily sleep diary should look like.
