Sleep Hygiene Handout

worksheet

The consequences of poor sleep are far-reaching. Brain functioning slows down, memory is impaired, the frequency of accidents increases, stress rises, and weight and blood pressure increase. In other words: sleep is important!

The Sleep Hygiene handout provides research-based tips for getting a better night’s sleep. Some of the tips include maintaining a regular sleep schedule, consuming caffeine only in the morning, and following a healthy diet.

Note that not every sleep hygiene tip is appropriate for every client. Bear in mind your client’s current functioning and their sleep goals. We recommend introducing the tips slowly, so clients don’t feel overwhelmed. In future sessions, follow up to reinforce the practice of consistent sleep hygiene.
