Analysing My Lockdown Sleep Data

Analysing My Lockdown Sleep Data

The past few months have been a turbulent time for most of us, in one form or another, but has our sleep been changed for better or worse?

The past few months have been a turbulent time for most of us, in one form or another. Whether that turbulence comes from a complete lifestyle overhaul, or simpler things, such as being cooped up with your flat-“mates” 24/7.

Personally, I’ve experienced:

  • A radically variable work schedule
  • A completely different social environment due to moving house
  • A new outlook on both current and future plans

Therefore, a question I had for myself was to what extent had this change in lifestyle changed the key attributes that impact my health: sleep, exercise, and diet. Unfortunately, I don’t yet record any data on my diet, however, I was lucky enough to invest in a health wearable last September, allowing me access to my sleep and exercise data pre, post, and mid-lockdown. Here are my findings…

A Year of Sleep Data

A couple of weeks ago, I was rummaging around in the settings of the fitness app that allows me to check my sleep and fitness data (tracked by the movement that my watch detects), and I noticed the following option:

After realising I could request convenient CSV files, containing a simplified view of my data, I knew I had to do it. This would allow me to perform whatever analysis I wished, removing all constraints of the app (i.e. now I can compare data across larger periods of time, rather than scrolling through weekly averages).

With a small amount of Python code, I now had the power to visualise a full year’s worth of health data. The first metric to analyse that came to mind? Total sleep per night.
