With MedHelp's free Sleep Tracker, you can track your sleep patterns, and identify patterns of behavior that result in better or more restless sleep, from drinking warm milk to uncomfortable temperatures. For mothers of young children, the sleep tracker can be used to track their babies' sleep patterns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and depression. Sufficient sleep is increasingly being recognized as an essential aspect of chronic disease prevention and health promotion." Track disturbances to your sleep, such as light or noise, and find out what affects your quality of sleep. Note when dreams, nightmares, night terrors, and sleepwalking occur. Keep a diary or journal of daily events affecting your sleep or how sleep affects your daily life. Track medications and treatments, including Ambien, Lunesta, and Sonata, and how the impact your sleep patterns.
