IS THE SEARCH FOR A PERFECT NIGHT’S SLEEP KEEPING YOU AWAKE?

It is towards the end of a long afternoon that the young woman comes through the door. In the past few hours in my clinic room in London Bridge, I have seen people with sleepwalking, narcolepsy, sleep apnoea and restless legs syndrome — a series of patients with extreme Sleep Disorders. But she looks different. I can feel the nervous energy as she walks into the room. As she sits down, I see her scrolling through an app on her phone and glimpse the familiar output of a sleep tracker. Weeks and weeks of nights, plotted out in graphs and colours.

And as she begins to talk, a recognisable story unfolds: a history of difficult sleep, the occasional extremely bad night, the demands of a stressful job in the City. In a search for a more consistent night, she has bought a sleep tracker: capture data to identify a problem, then solve it. Go: www.mysleepmonitor.com
