5 Ways To Figure Out How Well You’re Actually Sleeping At Night
And lastly, when in doubt, consider investing in a sleep tracker if you really want to dive into the ins and outs of your night’s sleep. “Whether it’s with a watch, a ring, a bracelet, or a bedside monitor,” Stephenson says, “in the morning you can see how many hours you actually slept, how much time you spent awake, how much time it took you to fall asleep, what your heart rate was, and how fast you were breathing.”
Some trackers will even tell you how much time you spent in the different sleep stages. “Monitors can help you understand your sleep quality, tell you if you are getting enough sleep or enough time in each sleep stage, and report whether your heart rate or breathing rate was too high,” Stephenson adds.
