Do you get enough sleep? If not, or you’re not sure, then here’s a cute yet practical sleep log that you can use to track your sleep.

You know that sleeping is one of the most important things you need to do so that you can be healthy and happy. And you must also know how it feels when you don’t get enough sleep.

I don’t know about you, but after a few bad nights of sleep, I’m like a zombie. Clumsy. Awkward. And not so pretty.

So today’s printable will hopefully help you understand how much sleep you’re getting and after tracking your sleep with the sleep log to make the needed adjustments and prioritize sleep. 

And if you log your sleep faithfully every day, it’s going to be like a reality check and even a wake up call if you only get a few hours sleep a night.

I hope you like it!

Materials you’ll need

The idea of a sleep log is that it’s a visual way of seeing when you go to bed each day, when you wake up and how much sleep you get.

It’s also a great way of seeing if you wake up during the night and can’t get back to sleep immediately. And also to see if you need to take naps during the days. 

In this sleep log printable there’s room to log your sleep for a month.

It’s letter-size and it’s a perfect addition to your personal planner or life management binder or you can use it as is.  

You can print as many as you want to for your personal use and there’s even multiple colors to choose from so you can pick your favorite or choose different colors for different months.

Why you need to keep a sleep log

Sleep log is a great way to have a reality check with your sleep.

I can’t tell you how shocking (in a good way!) it was to realize how little sleep I was getting at one point. I could have just continued complaining that I’m tired, but when I finally saw the “data” in front of me, it really hit me.

So if you often feel tired during the day or have trouble going to bed, it might be a good idea to have real data about that so that when you see the amounts of sleep you’ve logged in your tracker it could be the kind of boost you’ll need to start prioritizing sleep.

You could use a fancy sports tracker that also monitors your sleep, but I think this is a good way to start before investing into something that expensive.

Btw. If you have extra money to spare, then I would definitely recommend to spend that money on these things instead:

This amazing pillow (I just love my pillow, I can’t sleep without it anymore!)

This pillow spray(it really does work!)

or to this light (there’s no better light out there!)

All those things have been my Saturday gifts / me-gifts over the years and they’ve upgraded my sleep to a whole other level!

After you log the times in the sleep log you start seeing a pattern. Or hopefully start seeing a pattern. 

And if you don’t seem to get enough sleep or you go to bed sometimes at 4 am and sometimes at 9 pm it might tell you to start prioritizing sleep and creating a better evening routine and stick to it for a while. 

How to use the sleep log

I would recommend to start using the sleep log immediately. Don’t wait until it’s the beginning of the month or ever the beginning of the week. Start immediately. Print as many sleep logs you’ll need.

When you start understanding better your sleep make some adjustments to have better sleep. 

Make sleeping a priority. 

Put your phone away an hour before you need to go to bed. 

Listen to some relaxing  meditative music if needed. 

And remind yourself that your sleep is your responsibility. 

And this sleep log will hopefully help you be more accountable to yourself. 

You don’t have to keep the sleep log forever. Keep it until your sleep routine starts to look better. 

But if you like keeping a sleep log you definitely can keep it every month (there’s multiple colors of this printable so that you can have different colors for different months if you’d like!).

In this printable there’s room to log your sleep for a month. 

I’ll walk you through how to use the sleep log printable and I hope it’ll help you understand your sleep better!

Instructions for the sleep log printable

The printable sleep log has the dates of the month (1-31) on the left side and then hours of the day starting from 1 pm and in the middle is the night time and on the far right is the noon.

The idea is to color the hours you sleep each night. And if you took a nap, then color that hour (or those hours) too. 

If you don’t remember exactly what time you fell a sleep, it’s no problem. This is not a medical journal, it’s just a simple way to monitor if you’re getting enough hours of sleep. 

The sleep log comes in 4 different colors (one of them is grey and black so you can also use the black-and-white printer).

Print the page and start tracking your sleep. But don’t stop there. If you find some inconsistency or something “alarming” about your sleep make the necessary changes and try to prioritize sleep so that you can have enough energy each day.

3. When you start seeing a pattern then make needed adjustments to prioritize sleep.

Note. The sleep log itself doesn’t help you sleep more or better, but it might give you push to right direction when you see you’re sleeping patterns.

Extra tips

EXTRA TIP 1: The easiest way to prioritize sleep is to set it in a form of a goal. Don’t just decide that you’re going to sleep more, but create a real goal out of it. If you need help with goal setting then this article will help you.

EXTRA TIP 2: If you’re not sleeping because of another person, because your baby is not sleeping the nights yet or you’re spouse is keeping you awake with snoring, then you can track their sleep too and see if you can find a pattern there and if you can find a solution that would help you get more sleep. 

EXTRA TIP 3: You can also color the times when you went to bed with a different color and when you’re actually sleeping with the different colors so that you’ll know if something is keeping you up. 

And remember that you can print as many as you need for your personal use.
