Need a little nudging to get your shut-eye?  Keeping a sleep diary can help you learn about your sleep patterns and habits.  Complete this two week sleep diary from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine any time during the month of March. Return it to beingwell@yale.edu by April 1 to be entered into a raffle for a basket full of “sleep swag!”  If you’d prefer to return your diary by intraoffice mail, please address it to Being Well at Yale at 55 Lock Street, Room 4166.

Also make sure to take a look at the many resources available for getting more and better sleep, including a bedtime calculator, tips for creating a healthy sleep environment, and a confidential web-based program for sleep problems and insomnia.
