In the present study, the benefits of a short-term sleep coaching intervention embedded in the workplace health promotion (WHP) program of the German Armed Forces was investigated.

Participants and methods

Well-being, self-care awareness, self-care behavior and irritation of participants attending the sleep coaching (n = 24) and participants attending other courses offered in the WHP program (n = 24) were assessed before and after the intervention.


Participants attending the sleep coaching had a significant increase in well-being, self-care behavior and self-care awareness and a significant decrease in their irritation score after attending the sleep coaching. In the control group, no significant change in the dependent variables was observed; furthermore, participants’ evaluation of the sleep coaching was positive on both affective reactions and utility judgements.


Results show that the sleep coaching intervention evaluated is practically feasible and able to improve important indicators of employees’ well-being and self-care in WHP programs.
