I promised you yesterday that I’d share about an app I’ve been using.
First off, this is how it came about.
I was very nervous about oversleeping and I vaguely remembered reading somewhere (no idea where) about apps that sound an alarm when you’re between sleep cycles so you don’t feel so groggy when you have to wake up.
That’s me – very groggy (and grumpy) when I have to wake so I thought it was worth a try.
I searched in the app store and found this one, Sleep Time. There is a free version but that only stores your information for the 5 latest days so after I realised that, I paid R8 and got the paid version and I’m giddy with the stats.
As at this snapshot, you can see my average bedtime is 11:36 pm, my average duration was 7 hours 16 minutes and my sleep efficiency is 91%.
My stats don’t look like that anymore…
My average bedtime is now 12.25 am and my average duration is only 6 hours 23 minutes. Efficiency still 90%.
This is great because it’s giving me the information so I can do something about it. I know I function best on at least 7 hours of sleep, so no wonder I haven’t been at my best and the after midnight sleep really needs to stop
By the way, I do think I wake easier with this app but the real test will come this winter.
