''A few minor adjustments'' will get you to sleep faster
Sleep expert Jared Croslow has recently advised that a few minor adjustments will get you to sleep faster, make you sleep deep and allow to wake up refreshed and rested.
Mr Croslow turned to sleep study after several successes in the world of entrepreneurialism and business consulting, and has recently released the results of his latest research which are available on his website Cliconomics.com. He hopes that the results will help thousands of people enjoy more productive and creative awake times.
In a six month personal study, Mr Croslow put the microscope on his own sleep routines in an attempt to better his productivity during the day. He started by looking at one personal trait that I'm sure we are all guilty of; the snooze button. He found that adding extra time onto his alarm clock was significantly effecting how he felt when he woke up, even though he got the recommended eight hours of sleep.
After weeks of waking up feeling tired and under rested, he decided to examine what aspects of his night time routine were making him feel groggy in the day. He spent more than half a year tracking his sleep patterns, and finally discovered how to sleep better.
He has recently posted an article on his website documenting his research on the patterns of sleep, sleep cycles and the science behind them, and sleep’s effect on the brain.
He said: “The average person is only getting 25 per cent of their sleep in the deep sleep phases.
“That means the doctor-recommended sleep times are only giving us two hours of recuperative sleep. Sleeping more doesn’t do anything to improve your feelings of sluggishness. Lack of deep sleep is what causes all those nasty sleep deprivation statistics. You are drowsy, unfocused, have headaches, and may find it impossible to concentrate.”
In order to improve sleep, Mr Croslow recommends a few key tips to success. These included taking a 15- to 30-minute nap per day, regulating one’s body temperature, getting more sunlight, and improving the room and conditions of the room in which one sleeps, to ensure an optimal rest.#
