Sleep disorders affect all aspects of life. Conversely, habits in daily life can affect the severity of symptoms and quality of sleep during the night. The Zeo device itself can give you sleep stage and sleep quality data while the myZeo platform and journal allow you to add additional information, such as quality of life, diet, exercise to see how such behavior impacts your sleep.
In terms of correlating sleep quality and quantity to quality of life, the Zeo Sleep Journal is an extremely helpful tool. Filling out the nightly questions is important, as well as the Morning Feel and Daytime Feel questions as well; such information is a great way to help you assess your alertness, mood, and general well-being during the day.
Integrating your daily regime of medication and supplements can also lead to new insights. For those with a recognized sleep disorder or issue, this information can also help your medical provider make more informed decisions about what’s the best course of treatment. Of course, you should only make changes to your medication or treatment plan with your doctor’s approval.
Finally, the Journal can help you and your doctor as you test out new medications, dietary changes, or exercise routines. By using the “custom” option, you can track these changes against your sleep quality and quantity, allowing you to directly assess the impact this new behavior or routine has on your sleep.
