Ability to have complete and quality sleep cycle is divine gift for some people. But other people can train and learn how to build good sleeping routines that will give them a life fulfilling balance between rest and active time.

The mono-phase sleeping is the most common sleeping pattern. It happens usually from late evening until morning. Most of the daily activities of this civilization are tailored in order to fit around it. Sleeping during the night is most normal time for sleeping.


Our physiological function ( metabolism, heart rate, secretion, digestion, etc. ) are naturally programmed to perform at reduced rate, in order to make the sleep and rest as easy and effective as possible.


The duration of sleeping during the night depends from one individual to the other. Infants sleep up to 16 hours per day. Children sleep up to 10 hours. The adults are sleeping around 8 hours, while elders tend to sleep less. The duration of the sleep is not the only indication of the sleep quality. The other factors play a considerable role.


REM sleep pattern


During the sleep the human brain wave functions are lowering to the frequency between 0 and 4 Hz. During the sleep the eyes shows pattern known as rapid eye movement ( REM ) happens during dreaming. It is considered that is necessary to have four or five REM cycles during the night, in order to complete the sleeping cycle and needs for recovery. The total REM time is usually from 90 to 120 minutes.

It is good to exercise a different sleep pattern, in order to identify which way works the best for you. It is not important which pattern you will take, but is important that it suit to you. If you find some pattern that is not good for you, than do not use it. Experiment and identify what is the best method for you and reward yourself with healthy sleep and productive awaken time.
