The Sleep Diary is completed in 3 blocks.
First block relates to detail about you. Fill in as much detail as possible, and if necessary continue to a separate sheet of paper. The more detail the better.
Second Block relates to your actual sleep. It should be completed on the morning after sleep (Monday night’s sleep detail, complete on Tuesday morning).
Third Block relates to issues that might affect your sleep (Monday’s detail should be completed before going to bed on Monday night).
The Sleep Diary is a subjective report on YOUR SLEEP. To get the maximum benefit, you must insert truthful information. It helps to determine a realistic baseline from which to start off.
ANSWERS MAY BE EXTENDED TO ANOTHER SHEET OF PAPER.
