USING SLEEP CONSISTENCY TO INCREASE DEEP SLEEP TIME.
You know that Deep (aka Slow Wave Sleep) & REM Sleep are the two important stages of the sleep cycle as they are the physically and mentally restorative ones, with Deep Sleep in particular being when 95% of your HGH is produced.
If you sleep for 7+ hours overnight, this should equate to 90+ minutes of time spent in Deep Sleep.
So how do you maximise your Deep Sleep, knowing that almost 25% of your sleep time should be spent in this stage? By working on your sleep consistency!
Sleep consistency is when you go to bed and wake up close to the same times each day.
How close is your bedtime today, to your bedtime yesterday?
How close is your wake time today, to your wake time yesterday?
Sleep consistency is a measure of your Circadian Rhythm (your body's internal clock). Your Circadian Rhythm regulates everything, including your hormones and digestion.
The better your sleep consistency, the more efficiently your body works. Just like we, as humans, like a regular routine to know what’s happening and when its planned to happen, our bodies respond well to this kind of process also!
The more consistent your sleep/wake times are each day, the more time you will spend in Deep Sleep at night and the easier you will also find it to wake each day.
Dialling in your sleep routine, both in the evening and on waking, can set you up for success in the area of sleep consistency.
So how do you improve your SLEEP ROUTINE, start with these easy tips - SEE HERE!
