    • Examine your current sleep habits


    Take a few minutes to review and assess your own sleep habits. Are you getting enough?

     Check the appropriate boxes: Usually Sometimes Never
    I get 7–8 hours of sleep at night.
    I feel sleepy or have trouble focusing during the day.
    I take a nap when I feel drowsy or need more sleep.
    I fall asleep or have trouble staying awake in class.
    I fall asleep while studying.
    I stay up all night to study for exams or write papers.
    1. Track how much sleep you get each night during a one-week period.
    2. At the end of the week, write a short journal entry (1–2 pages) in which you reflect on your current sleep habits:
      • How many hours of sleep do you think you need every night to function at your best? How can you tell?
      • On an average, how many hours of sleep did you get on weeknights?
      • On average, how many hours of sleep did you get on weekend nights?
    3. How would you rank the importance of sleep compared with studying, working, spending time with friends/family, and other activities? What things get in the way of your consistently getting enough sleep?
    4. What changes can you make to your schedule and/or routines that might improve your sleep habits?
