Six Colors: Simple sleep tracking with Shortcuts ๐Ÿ”—

Dan Moren, writing for Six Colors:

What I really wanted was for iOS to be a bit more intelligent. For example, it could realize that when I turn off my bedside light (which is a HomeKit-compatible Philips Hue bulb) Iโ€™m going to bed. And then, when I pick up my phone in the morning it could log that Iโ€™m awake, and store the resulting information in the Health app.

Alas, that functionality doesnโ€™t exist. So I made it myself using a pair of Shortcuts.

While I was away at Disneyland, this great set of shortcuts snuck by me.

This is the exact approach I have so often โ€“ I think โ€œwhy canโ€™t my pocket computer do this?โ€ and then Shortcuts lets me roll my own solution.
