The Better Sleep Challenge- Week 4 Day 1

The Better Sleep Challenge- Week 4 Day 1

Week 4 Action Plan

1. Finish my sleep journal. Track my sleep quality and quantity at least 3 more days per week. Then, compare my energy levels, hours slept, and overall observations from this week to what you first tracked in week one. Did I notice any improvements?

2. Set my long-term sleep goals. Back in week 1, I set goals that I wanted to accomplish during this monthlong challenge. Now it's time to look ahead and establish a long-term better-sleep goal. Share my goal with others in our week 4 forum for feedback and accountability.

3. Stick with my favorite better-sleep techniques. I've learned about and tried several of them over the last few weeks, but just because the challenge is over, I shouldn't give up on these insomnia busters. Choose at least three relaxation, stress-busting, and stay-asleep techniques that I can maintain over the long haul.

Then WOOHOO Congratulations to ME! On completing SparkPeople's Better Sleep Challenge! After tracking my progress and following the program. After I complete this final week, I will earn the Better Sleep Challenge SparkTrophy!

    Congratulations on doing the Sleep Challenge! I completed that and learned some techniques that helped- like having the fan on, spraying a soothing scent on the pillows etc. I hope it brings you good restful sleep. emoticon Hugs, Laurel

    I think I need this challenge. I have really crazy sleep habits and am trying to improve them. I will read your blog and maybe get some ideas to help me. Where is the information on the challenge? emoticon

    Congratulations! I did the sleep challenge several months ago and it helped tremendously. I have slipped a little lately and slept until 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon and then couldn't sleep on Sunday night. So I went to work on Monday with no sleep. I made it through but am resolved to get back on track!

  You're several steps ahead of me on this one. I'm still having difficulty getting started. I've got to become better at managing my time at night, so I can get to bed on time.
