The questions probe whether you sleep in the superman or log position at night and who you share you bed with – incase they are a big snorer.
To dig deeper into what may be causing a lack of sleep, it asks quizzers to suggest what may be keeping them up at 3am – with options such as a child crying, sleepwalking or thinking about your to-do list.
In order to judge your ability to stay awake throughout the day, it also digs deep into where you are likely to doze off and even asks at what point you’re likely to drift off during popular 90s love story Titanic.
THE LUCKY ONES: THE PERSONAS WHICH GET THEIR FORTY WINKS
MOSTLY As: Pro Snoozer
If sleep was an Olympic sport you’d be getting the gold medal. You’re a natural-born sleeper who can sleep whenever and wherever you want.
That’s not to say you don’t put in the effort of creating the perfect sleep environment.
You listen to the sleep experts and are rewarded with 8+ sweet hours of undisturbed shut-eye.
Waking up naturally can sometimes be too early, even for a pro snoozer, but try to get up rather than ‘snoozing’ for an extra 45 minutes.
Waking up with an alarm in the middle of another sleep cycle can leave you feeling groggy despite sleeping for longer.
MOSTLY Bs: Sleep Binger
There’s nothing you love more than sleep, whether that’s in your own bed, on the sofa, or drifting off on the train.
If the opinion is to go out or have an early night we know which one you’d choose. Your greatest enemy is that alarm ringtone (or having to stay up for New Year’s Eve).
If you want to make waking up that little easier, try cutting out any unnecessary naps you might be sneaking in and try to have a relaxed evening with calming activities before bed.
This will ensure you get better quality sleep and wake up easier in the morning.
THE PERSONAS FOR WHICH SLEEP IS MORE UNPREDICTABLE
MOSTLY Cs: Grim Sleeper
Unfortunately for you, a peaceful night’s sleep doesn’t come easily.
Whether you’re struggling to get comfy, battling insomnia or simply struggling to wind down, hitting the hay and falling asleep quickly often feels out of reach.
You’re a high energy individual with lots on your mind, and this can mean that you get less sleep than average.
Create a relaxing sleep environment by investing in some blackout blinds or curtains to make your bedroom dark.
Humidifiers and sleep sprays can also really help you relax.
MOSTLY Ds: The Wild One
You don’t play by the rules, your sleep routine is unpredictable and ever-changing.
There’s no set time for lights out, it could be 9pm, midnight or 3am it really depends on your busy calendar (or what’s on Netflix) – either way, you’re always up and ready to take on the day whether you got 4 hours or 9.
Creating some routine will make a big difference to your sleep.
If making sure you’re in bed between 10-11.30pm is going to be a challenge, try to create a routine with what you do before sleeping such as meditation, reading or listening to a sleep app – all proven to help people switch off.
