Do You Get Enough Sleep? I Hope So. If Not Keep Reading…
I am in the process of working on a system of getting the optimum amount of sleep. It starts with setting up the iPhone and letting it know when I would like to get up every morning which is different than just setting an alarm.
When you go into the clock app on the iPhone you go to the tab labeled “BEDTIME”. Set this for 8 hours before you want to wake up. 9 pm to 5 am is 8 hrs of sleep. This setting will remind you when to go to bed for the required 8 hrs of sleep you will need.
Now, wear that Apple Watch to bed if you have one. The Apple watch can monitor your sleep cycle and will gently wake you up with a vibration at the time you would like to get up every morning. After a while (a month or so), your sleep cycle will be set.
Curious as to how you are recharging?
I use an app called AutoSleep. I check it every morning to see how I recharged overnight. This is an excellent tool. I find I don’t need 8 hrs of sleep, I am fine on 7 but if I block out 8 hours I will get anywhere from 5.5. to 7 hrs of sleep and anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours of deep sleep. The days I get 5 or 6 hours of sleep I can schedule a nap to recover.
