Doesn't get measured doesn't get managed. And really understanding how you effectively sleep is critical. sleep cycle is my go to app, and it's 99 cents on the I tunes App Store. It's also available for Android, very simple, intuitive, easy to use in fairly reliable. Basically plug it in, and put it on your nightstand or you can put it under your pillow, but make sure it's in the Wi Fi mode. You are the airplane mode.

I'm sorry, you don't want radio frequency energy zapping you in the head all night long. There's a device that I use in the back of my phone that captures that energy and emits it in a harmless infrared light. I'd be happy to tell you about that if you have any questions. But anyways, I really encourage you to check out this app. This is basically what it looks like. The screenshot here on the left shows you the waveform.

I'll just jump the next screen here and we'll dive into a little bit of the metrics of it but it's an alarm clock. You can set the phases Sleep that you want it to coincide with, for example, a sleep cycle last about 90 minutes we talked about that in terms of progressing through the normal phases of sleep. And you can adjust the interval in terms of how it wakes you up. So the ideal is that it monitors your sleep and tries to wake you up gently when you are in the lightest possible stay asleep as opposed to deep sleep, which is much more hard to wake up from. And so you can see you know, regular patterns asleep with the normal spikes every 90 minutes. pretty typical.

You can see some irregular sleep. This is an example of a poor waveform probably because your devices are blocked by a pillow or fallen off your nightstand or become disconnected. So it's very intuitive and really encourage you to check it out. It's a nice gentle alarm clock with a vibration mode. And it's much better than the light source that most alarm clocks emits actually don't have any alarm clocks in my bedroom because I don't like the extra light here. Here's an example of under the pillow This is how I Use it.

I think it's a little bit more accurate. But I encourage you to check out sleep cycle for Android and the iPhone.
