SLEEP CAN MAKE YOU MORE RESILIENT

SLEEP CAN MAKE YOU MORE RESILIENT
Just came across an interesting article in The Atlantic and thought I would share ...


Quote:Better Sleep Can Build Emotional Resilience

A new study suggests that people who naturally get more REM sleep may be less sensitive to frightening things.

The authors of a new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience say this is one of the first to show that sound sleep might protect against fear and distress, while a person’s tendency to sleep fitfully can make them more likely to be traumatized later on.

Nice to know. Too bad I don't have any way to know how much REM sleep I get each night short of getting a sleep study every night.

Maybe some day.

Thanks

If you can remember if you were dreaming, the chances are that you were experiencing REM sleep because dreams usually happen in REM sleep.

It's not uncommon for people not to remember their dreams. I think I read 60 or 70 percent of people don't remember dreams at any given time. It doesn't mean they weren't in REM though. Than again I do usually remember dreaming but that's coming off the last sleep cycle.
Who knows if I'm dreaming during the other 3 or 4 cycles. I'm no expert just tossing it out there.

My brother swears by his apple watch which apparently records REM and other sleep stages.
My tracker only shows 'light' and 'restful' sleep. The timing is remarkably accurate though and suggests it can tell the difference between couch time and bed time.

No disrespect intended, but the makers of third-party apps that purport to use onboard sensors (especially the accelerometer) to measure sleep stages may be selling smoke and mirrors. https://www.livescience.com/42710-fitnes...uracy.html

None taken at all.  It's my bro who swears by his,  not me by mine, necessarily  Cool  
What mine helps me most with is activity during the day... I couldn't afford an apple one to make an argument for anyway, much as it would be fun to play with.
