Stages Of Sleep

Stages Of Sleep

Obviously, being suffocated many times per hour will result in a less that restful night of sleep. There are four main stages of sleep.

  • Stage one- Transition sleep: This should account for roughly 5% of total sleep time
  • Stage two- Light Sleep: This should account for about 45% of total sleep time
  • Stage Three-Deep Sleep: This is when he body heals itself and performs many important reparative functions. Ideally, this should account for 25% of total sleep time. People who have a lack of deep sleep tend to be physically tired and notice more general pain.
  • REM- Rapid Eye Movement (REM sleep): This is where most of your memorable dreaming comes from. It should account for about 25% of your sleep time. People that have a lack of REM sleep tend to feel mentally tired and have a difficult time concentrating.
