Sleep Study Assignment

Specifically, for this assignment you will:

  • Keep a sleep/dream journal for at least 10 days throughout Weeks 3 and 4.
  • In your journal make note of:
    • any dreams you had
    • any initial thoughts about the dream – events of the day that may relate, etc.
    • your general sleep schedule (if you have a tracker such as fitbit, include data on your sleep patterns as well – wakefulness, restlessness, times asleep/awake per night, total sleep, etc.)
    • your general eating habits by day
    • your general exercise habits by day
    • anything else of note in your psychological or physical health (stress, excitement, changes, etc.)
  • You should use the templates provided here. One template is for the reflection (and is already APA formatted with “paragraph cues” for the discussion) and 2 templates are provided (your choice) to track the data requirement for this assignment (see attachments below).
  • Using the provided template, complete a 3-4 page reflection (not counting title or reference pages) in which you analyze the results of your sleep/dream journal. Please avoid just restating the *obvious* or providing a narration of what you did ~ the DATA YOU COLLECTED should do that for you! Analyze the results ~ Consider how your psychological and physical health interacted. What patterns did you see? Discuss the impact that various factors such as fatigue, diet, stress and exercise had on your dreams and sleep patterns. Explain how this insight may impact your behaviors in the future to lead to better psychological and physical health.
  • Use at least 2 academic resources (your course readings can comprise one of the sources) to support your analysis and discussion. The resource MUST be scholarly, which means *most* website do NOT apply as a resource!
