What Do I Do If I Can’t Sleep?

Sleep Awareness Month recognizes the importance of healthy sleep habits and their impact on physical, mental, and emotional health. Sleep-related difficulties can affect many people, so it’s important to practice good sleep habits. However, if you start to experience sleep problems, especially those that interfere with how you feel or function during the day, you should talk to your physician. Before your visit,
try keeping a journal of your sleep habits for about ten days to discuss at the visit.

Include the following in your sleep journal, when you:

  • Go to bed.
  • Go to sleep.
  • Wake up.
  • Get out of bed.
  • Take naps.
  • Exercise.
  • Drink alcohol.
  • Drink caffeinated beverages.

At your visit, be sure to ask about any medications or supplements you may be taking (over-the-counter or prescription), as they may also make it harder for you to sleep.
