The Stages of Sleep

April 12, 2013 by  

When you go to sleep at night, you experience four stages of sleep. To feel the most well rested, generally, you need to wake up at the end of the sleep cycle.

Stage One
The eyes are closed during Stage 1 sleep and you can be awakened without difficulty, however, if aroused from this stage of sleep, you may feel as if you havenʼt slept. Stage 1 may last for five to 10 minutes. During this time, you may feel like youʼre falling, which may cause you to jump suddenly, (called hypnic myoclonia).

Stage Two
The second stage of sleep and lasts for approximately 20 minutes. The brain begins to produce bursts of rapid, rhythmic brain wave activity known as sleep spindles. Body temperature starts to decrease and heart rate begins to slow.

Stage Three
Deep, slow brain waves known as delta waves begin to emerge during stage 3 sleep. Stage 3 is a transitional period between light sleep and a very deep sleep.

Mattresses for an Active Lifestyle

For people leading an active and on-the-go lifestyle, finding the right mattress or mattress topper can be challenging. Maybe you’re a college student, and you know you’ll be moving a lot, or maybe you’re trying to furnish your RV or mobile home. Perhaps you need a smaller bed for your new apartment, or summer vacation home. Whatever your reason, you need a versatile mattress, one that won’t hold you back. Fortunately, there are mattresses that cater to all of these needs and more.
I Love Better Sleep - Active Lifestyle Mattress
What makes an active-lifestyle mattress? Their most important feature is that unlike almost every other mattress on the market today, they don’t require a boxspring. And without a boxspring, most of these mattresses are only between eight and ten inches tall. This instantly allows for them to be more lightweight, more portable, and more adaptable to the location they end up in.
