Sleep Diary

Your physicians may ask you to fill out a sleep diary or sleep log each day to document specific sleep and wake habits over a period of time. A sleep diary can be particularly useful in diagnosing and treating insomnia and circadian rhythm sleep disorders.

A sleep diary can be a very helpful tool to gain more insight into your sleep problem, or to monitor whether a treatment is successful. Sleep diaries are normally completed once or twice a day. It usually consists of several questions related to sleep and wake times, nap times, caffeine and alcohol use and general mood or functioning. It is important that you fill this out on getting up for the day and be as honest and detailed as possible. Do not leave it to memory to fill things out the next day or two.
