Did you answer mostly A, B, C or D? Find out what your answers mean below!

Mostly A

You need to get to bed right now!
You’re burning the candle at both ends and should make sure you take yourself off to the nearest bed, ASAP! Maybe it’s time to ask your nearest and dearest if they’ll take care of your little one for a while, so you can catch up on some sleep.

Mostly B

You’re 75% tired.
You’ve been running at full capacity for a while, so it’s probably a good idea to get an early night. Try using a spritz of a soothing pillow spray, throw on your comfiest pyjamas and read a good book to help you drift off to the land of sleep.

Mostly C

You’re 50% tired.
You could probably do with a nap right now, but you’re not desperate for sleep. That means you can look forward to the rest of a productive day, and maybe even stay up to catch the next episode of your favourite series on TV before you go to bed.

Mostly D

You’re wide awake.
Congrats! You’re hardly tired at all! Maybe you’ve just come back from a relaxing holiday and recharged those batteries, or you’ve been treated to a spa day – either way, you’re feeling great and ready to take on the world. Go you!
