Resources for Better Sleep

I have created a number of resources to help you sleep better.

I hope you find them useful.

Keeping a Sleep Log - a good place to begin

Sleep is one of my 5 Keys to Staying Healthy, but we often don’t appreciate how important it is to our wellbeing until we’re not sleeping well and everything seems out of balance.

If this sounds familiar and you want to improve your sleep then a good place to begin is by keeping a daily sleep log for a couple of weeks. This will help establish a baseline – your current sleep patterns and habits – then you can figure out where to focus your improvement efforts.

Sleep Log

Set aside a notebook and use the following suggestions:

Fill in Daily – each morning (don’t try to write things down during the night)

Daytime Activity log
It is also helpful to track what you’re doing during the day as these activities can affect your sleep. Track things like what you eat, your stress levels, and use of caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, etc.

Fill this out each evening before going to bed.

Suggestions:

Both your sleep and daytime activity logs will be most relevant and useful if you fill them out every day for two weeks. This is not the time to change your routine. For now just aim to get an accurate record of your normal sleep and daytime patters. That information will help you decide on the best course of action for improvement. You can use the Healing Sleep workshop video (HERE) and my 10 Sleep Tips (HERE) to help you make a plan.

Sleep well and Htay Healthy!
