Healthy sleep habits promote military wellness, boost stress management, and improve focus for optimal performance. When it comes to getting restful sleep, it’s important to understand what works for you. What keeps you up at night? What helps you feel rested in the morning? When are the best times for you to go to bed and wake up? Is it helpful to take a nap? The goal of sleep is to feel rested and energized the next day. The exact sleep recipe for each person to get those results might be different. Use HPRC’s worksheet to help you keep track of your sleep, the different factors that might help or prevent a restful sleep, or any habits you might want to continue or avoid.
