waking up from a restful sleep

Sleep, for most of us, it’s as precious as gold is  But sleep is only valuable if you get a good night’s rest, or if you get quality sleep.  If you spend half of your night tossing and turning in bed, you may actually wake up more tired in the morning.  “So if quality of sleep matters, how do I calculate the amount of quality sleep I get at night?”  This article will explain how you can do this.

Use a sleep cycle calculator

“Wait how can a sleep cycle calculator REM actually tell me the amount of quality sleep I get each night?”  While it may seem odd to you that it is actually possible for you to calculate the amount of quality sleep you get at night, it’s a reality.  REM stands for rapid eye movement,and when you enter into REM sleep, you are actually getting a good deal of quality sleep at night.  This is the type of sleep which leaves you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day in the morning upon awakening.

It is actually quite simple to use a sleep cycle calculator to determine the amount of REM sleep you should get at night.  You enter in the time you want to fall asleep at night, and you enter in the time of day in the morning or night you want to wake up at.  The calculator will then tell you the number of hours of REM sleep you should be expecting to get that night (or day)!  It’s as simple as that!

How you sleep matters

What your sleeping position says about the way you sleep.  It means a lot.  The position you sleep in at night largely determines how comfortable you will be when you lay down to go to sleep.  Remember that the more comfortable your are, the more rested you will be, and the more rested you will be largely determines how quickly your brain enters into the precious and vital REM sleep mode.  It is largely the REM sleep mode which determines the amount of quality sleep you actually get at night, as mentioned earlier.

Sleep on a full mattress

Full bed sizes also matter when you want to enter into the REM sleep mode and get quality sleep at night.  This is because sleeping on a full bed rests your body and makes it feel more comfortable and relaxed.  Since a comfortable and relaxed body soon makes the brain feel more comfortable and relaxed, you will fall asleep faster and stay asleep for longer periods of time.  You will get more quality sleep at night and feel more rested in the morning as a result.  You want to choose a queen size or king sized bed when you want a full sized bed because these bed types are much larger in size than the average bed is.  And a full sized bed allows you to stretch your feet better when you do sleep at night. You will feel comfortable and relaxed sooner and you will fall asleep faster and sleep better as a result.

So now that you know

Now that you know what it takes to enter into the REM sleep mode and get good quality sleep at night, you can get use the sleep calculator, sleep on your back and without a pillow, and sleep on a king or queen sized bed.  Doing all of this will make you feel more comfortable and relaxed when you do lay down to sleep and they will ensure that you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer!
