Your goal is to look at your sleep habits in an objective way, looking for patterns or problems that may be keeping you from getting enough sleep. You should also identify several strategies you can use to improve you sleep and describe how you are going to implement at least one of these strategies.<br />REQUIREMENTS: Your final analysis should be formatted as follows: <br />
Times New Roman Font Style

COMMENTS: Remember that your analysis should be written in paragraphs. Just meeting the minimum requirements is considered average. That’s what most students can do. Average work will receive an average grade, which is around a “C”. Work that is worthy of an above average grade should go above and beyond the minimum requirements.<br />Please make use of the handouts in this packet. You need to attach your sleep diary to your analysis. <br />
