Sleep-wake diary

What is a sleep-wake diary? Keeping a sleep-wake diary helps you gain insight into your sleep problems. You write down seven days in a row when and how long you slept. You also write down anything that may have affected your sleep. This will often reveal what is causing your sleep problems, how it is being maintained and what you can do about it. Fill out the diary even if you slept well.

When you review the completed diary, it becomes clear what is disrupting your sleep. Often you will also see what you can do to address the cause of your sleep problems. Don't know what the cause is? Then you can make an appointment with a sleep expert or your doctor. Bring your completed sleep wake diary with you.
