Sleep Diary

The Sleep Charity

If you’re having trouble sleeping and can’t understand why, keeping a Sleep Diary can help identify what’s keeping you awake. Sometimes your sleep troubles are a result of bad sleep habits for example drinking too much caffeine before bedtime, not exercising or poor sleep hygiene. The diary is a useful tool which will help to pinpoint if you’re consistently waking at a similar time, what you’ve done that day, what you’ve eaten etc to see if there is any pattern.

Start keeping a sleep diary as soon as you begin to recognise a problem and complete over a two week period. If you need to see a GP or healthcare professional about your sleep issues you will have evidence of your sleep-wake pattern which can help with a diagnosis and treatment.
