On average, I’m getting 4-6 hours of sleep every night. That said, my time in bed is usually 2+ hours longer than this. So to get 6 hours of sleep, I’m normally in bed for 8+ hours. Very inefficient.
This is based on stats from my Oura Ring. In fact, here’s a chart from last night:
As you can see, my “Time asleep” was: 4h 43m.
But my “Total duration” of time dedicated to sleeping was 6h 46m.
My wife calls my sleep graph an accordion. You can see I’m bouncing in and out of sleep all night long. I don’t know how long it’s been since I went to sleep and the first time I woke up was in the morning…
That’s one of my big goals now.
So this is my current baseline. Now as I dedicate myself to hacking my sleep, we will see what changes.
“You can’t improve what you don’t measure.” is a quote attributed to Peter Drucker, so with the help of my Oura Ring I am now measuring my sleep every night with the intent to improve it consistently.
