There is a way to tell whether, or not you have had a very good night’s sleep. 35 percent of adults get less than 7 hours of sleep every night. There are some factors that lead to getting a good sleep at night. if you fall asleep in 30 minutes, or less, then that is a good sign. Waking up for under 5 minutes once a night is another really good sign. If it takes more than an hour to fall asleep, this is a bad sign.

- In general, good sleep entails falling asleep quickly, and staying asleep; bad sleep in turn entails taking a long time to falling asleep, and not staying asleep.
- Sleep trackers monitor your sleep, to give you a picture of your sleep habits. But, for many people, their perception of their sleep is different from what a tracker would suggest.
