Which Sleep Animal Are You?

Many of us are familiar with the terms ‘early bird’ or ‘night owl’ but did you know that there are four main types of sleep animal that most of us fit into? Are you a Bear, Lion, Dolphin, or Wolf?

Each animal corresponds with a sleep chronotype, which is how people sleep. Our internal body clock, or circadian rhythm, varies between individuals, meaning some animals are more active or wakeful at different times of the day.

Dolphins are light sleepers who may suffer from insomnia, and lions are early risers with lots of energy who often feel exhausted by early evening. Whereas bears follow the sunrise and sunset and need eight hours sleep, wolves have a hard time getting up early and are most active at night.

Knowing your chronotype can not only boost your productivity, but it can also tell you the best time to eat, sleep, work, exercise, drink coffee or alcohol.

Take the quiz to find out your sleep animal – and discover expert tips to adjust your sleep schedule to suit your unique biological rhythm.

Which Sleep Chronotype Animal Are You?

There are four types of sleep chronotype animals you should know about – these are a Bear, Lion, Dolphin, and Wolf. Everyone has an individual sleep-wake-productivity pattern over 24 hours – a natural inclination to want to sleep, wake up and get things done at certain times of day. Each of these sleep chronotype animals corresponds with a certain type of person and their activity levels. Not everyone runs on the same “biological time”, so getting to grips with your body’s internal clock [commonly known as your circadian rhythm] by understanding what your own sleep chronotype is can be the first step in improving your sleep. So, take our quiz to find out what your own sleep chronotype animal is – and to discover top tips of how best to work with your body’s natural clock to not only boost your productivity but to better understand your body’s needs.

I recently had the pleasure of upgrading my bedding with the luxurious 10.5 Tog duvet from Simba, and I can’t express how thrilled I am. This duvet is truly a game-changer when it comes to year-round comfort and sleep quality.

One of the standout features of this duvet is the Simba Renew Bio™ fill. It’s like sleeping with a cloud – incredibly soft and plush, providing the perfect amount of warmth. It truly mimics the coziness of down without any of the ethical concerns. The duvet’s 10.5 Tog rating makes it ideal for year-round use, so you can enjoy its comfort in both the heat of summer and the chill of winter.

What sets this duvet apart, though, is its superb breathability. No one wants to wake up feeling clammy and overheated in the middle of the night.

I can attest that it works wonders in regulating your body temperature, ensuring you stay comfortable and cool throughout the night. It’s like having your own personal thermostat!

The cotton outer layer of the duvet feels fresh and luxurious against your skin. It’s not only soft but also incorporates the Stratos® technology to help dissipate excess heat. It’s a fantastic combination of comfort and functionality that enhances the overall sleep experience.

Investing in a high-quality duvet is an investment in your sleep, and the Simba 10.5 Tog duvet is worth every penny.

  • I have a really bad sleep routine aka every day I swear I’ll go to bed earlier but every night I end up going way past midnight which is so baaad for a gal who has to be up at 5 am. I got ‘The Dolphin’ so apparently I was built to be a bit restless at night and tired during the day.

  • It’s eye-opening to realize how our sleep patterns can impact our overall well-being. I like the fact that the quiz doesn’t just label us; it provides actionable advice tailored to our ‘sleep animal’ type.

  • My result, ‘The Lion,’ felt uncannily accurate, shedding light on my unique sleep challenges. I’m a lion, a power napper, I can’t function without my afternoon sleep which works for me since I started WFH but before that it was a huge hassle, I felt like I would fall asleep on my desk. Apparently my quick snooze habits were spot on.
