Bad Sleep Cycle_Artboard 15_0Sleep is probably one of the most important things you can do in your day. Think of it like trying to drive a car with no gas; you won’t be going very far. The jury has been out fort a while on sleep and theres many, many opinions on what needs to be done when it comes to sleeping. 8 hours has always been the claimed staple, but with such a busy life, who has time to get 8 hours of sleep? Well, if you have residual income, you are probably getting 8 hours of sleep, but thats besides the point.

Recently, Entrepreneur Magazine did a study in which they compared three groups of people’s sleeping patterns over a one month period: the first slept 4 hours, the second 6 hours and the third slept 8 hours. They found that it took about a week for any results to show their head. The groups that slept 4 and 6 hours both showed the exact same results. Within a week, they were dragging, falling asleep during the day and not realizing it.

The 8 hour group performed well and had steady energy, though it is difficult for the average American to get 8 hours of sleep. It was found too, that a single night of sleep was not the issue, but rather the combined week of sleep. Lost sleep over a period of time ran the body down, the differential continually adding up. However, that does not mean you can just oversleep one day and catch up; when it’s gone, it’s gone. The reason 8 hours was so important, was because of REM Sleep. REM is the deeper sleep that really mentally recharges the body, these cycles are usually about 90 minutes each, and 8 hours is the perfect amount of time to get enough REM cycles to recharge the body.

That being said, how can you enhance your sleep and recharge a bit better? Well, first off, decide what time you want to get up and back track 8 hours to what time you need to go to bed; plan your schedule accordingly. Before bed, there are several supplements that can help, the first is Calcium. Much sleep time is wasted falling asleep, and calcium can help with this. Your body releases calcium to tell you muscles to rest or relax, and supplementing with calcium a half hour before bed will help you body relax. Your body may lack melatonin, and if this is the case, then you will not solve your sleep problems, you also may have a lot of stress. Prime Dreamz has the proper amount of melatonin for restful sleep, and well as the ability to relax your stress away.
