Sleep tracking and what it means
Your sleep is as unique as you are. For some, 7 hours of sleep is enough to function well. Others may struggle with 7 hours and need closer to 9. We are all different.
Portraying your sleep in binary terms of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ over-simplify a complex, highly individual experience, and risks compounding irritability, perceived fatigue and potential anxiety over one’s energy levels during the day. Using Kokoon, you can view details of your last sleep, or a snapshot of your sleep in a set time period in Insights tab.
Find the details from your last night’s sleep data, including
Sleep efficiency: the key measure to improving your sleep. Sleep efficiency = (Total time in bed / Total time asleep) x 100.
Hours of sleep: how long you were asleep for
Time to sleep: how long it took to fall asleep.
Time of sleep: the time that you fell asleep.
It’s useful to understand how we slept on any given night, to help understand how we are feeling and better prepare ourselves for the day ahead. However, many factors can influence how we sleep on a nightly basis. For a more accurate understanding of your sleep patterns, see the Insights tab which shows your average sleep across a week.
You can still view individual sleep session details in the Insights tab, by tapping on the day of the week in the sleep efficiency graph.
The Insights tab is your sleep dashboard. We use metrics from highly effective CBT-I practices to provide a view of your sleep and progress over time.
Sleep efficiency: the key measure to improving your sleep.
Sleep efficiency =(Total time in bed / Total time asleep) x 100.
The other metrics below all contribute to improving this score.
Consistency: how well you can adhere to your desired sleep schedule.
Disturbances: how often you woke in the night
Length: how long you were asleep for, in hours.
Mood: how you performed and felt in your day, based on your last sleep.
Use these graphs and weekly average statistics to identify patterns, understand the areas having the greatest impact on your sleep, and make cognitive or behavioural changes to help resolve them.
