You know you should get the recommended hours of sleep to recharge your brain and body. But it’s essential to focus on getting high-quality sleep too.
But what does “high-quality sleep” mean?
When you sleep, you transition through four sleep cycle stages, each one a critical component to helping you to wake up feeling refreshed. For adults, high-quality sleep is at least seven uninterrupted hours with you to passing through the sleep cycle five to six times.
Since each sleep cycle takes about 90 minutes to complete, you have to do a little math to determine what time to go to sleep to feel rested. (Sorry.)
