The Psychology of Falling Asleep

Philadelphia psychologist Suzanne Zoglio, Ph.D., developed a quiz that will reveal your sleep style. Once you know your type, you can determine which actions to take next. Choose which group of sayings applies to you most

1. "I don't have the time" could be your mantra.
You want to change something but can't seem to make it happen.
You wish you had someone to advise and encourage you.


2. If you get a headache, you don't hesitate to take an aspirin ASAP.
After a hard day a glass of wine is your favorite relaxer.
If you lose a button, a safety pin will do…for the life of the jacket.


3. If you could wear your slippers to work, you would.
A hotel room with a feather bed is your kind of place.
A lavender-scented candle would be a perfect gift for you.


4. When others are talking, your mind wanders off.
You could happily sit on a beach for an hour or more.
If stuck in traffic, you're likely to listen to music or daydream.


5. "I don't have the time" could be your mantra.
You are a champion multitasker.
People often ask you for help.


1. You're a Strong Starter.

"I don't have the time" could be your mantra.
You want to change something but can't seem to make it happen.
You wish you had someone to advise and encourage you.

1. You want to grow, regularly get psyched for change, but lose steam before you meet your

goals. Not quite sure why you can't stick to a plan, you'd probably welcome some sound advice

and some encouragement. Check out the sleep strategies involving doctors and/or professional advice first.

2. You're a Quick Fixer.

If you get a headache, you don't hesitate to take an aspirin ASAP.
After a hard day a glass of wine is your favorite relaxer.
If you lose a button, a safety pin will do…for the life of the jacket.

Practical and impatient with a low tolerance for suffering, you are likely to try anything that's fast, simple, and yields quick results, even if they are short term. Sleep strategies you should consider first include sleep medication, waking at the same time every day, and low-fat cookies before bed.

3.. You're a Comfort Queen.

If you could wear your slippers to work, you would.
A hotel room with a feather bed is your kind of place.
A lavender-scented candle would be a perfect gift for you.

If it feels good, smells good, or tastes good, bring it on! You can luxuriate for an hour in a warm bubble bath but you wouldn't be caught dead in a cold, smelly gym. The sleep strategies that will get you started include ones that modify your environment — silk sheets, hot soaks, and cool socks to start.


4. You're a Daydreamer.

When others are talking, your mind wanders off.
You could happily sit on a beach for an hour or more.
If stuck in traffic, you're likely to listen to music or daydream.

While others need to be physically moving, actively engaged, or entertained, you seem quite comfortable alone with your thoughts. Patient, calm, and introspective, you're likely to find the serene sleep strategies — like mental imagery, prayer, and meditation — to be just your cup of tea.


5. You're a Smart Phone Fanatic

"I don't have the time" could be your mantra.
You are a champion multitasker.
People often ask you for help.

With the middle name "24/7," what can you expect? You're amazing, and everyone knows it.

You're never out of contact, seldom say no, and regularly suffer from a mind in overdrive. For you sleep remedies begin with setting boundaries, managing electronics, online therapy, and clarifying your priorities.
