Master Productivity Techniques and Learn How to Make the System Work for You (Personal Development and Leadership 101)

It doesn’t matter what you do or where you work – everyone is looking for ways to be more productive these days. In our modern times, although many smart devices and apps facilitate our way of life, there are so many tasks and responsibilities coming from all corners that we can not keep up with our fast pace of life. In such situation, we usually have to abandon doing and enjoying certain things and often tend to lose our focus and productivity.

Productivity has long been an issue of wide popularity. However, many courses and books on productivity concentrate only on certain time-management techniques, whereas to be truly productive you have to change your whole way of living, habits and thinking. And this is not as hard as it seems. More so, it's definitely worth it. Once you've changed your poor habits, your whole new way of life will make it easier for you to stay productive and efficient throughout the day. You will have created a complete productive framework that will work for you.

This is what this course is all about. It's about bringing small changes to your daily routine, including eating and sleeping patterns, so that you won't have to make forced efforts anymore. It's also about how to beat procrastination and get into the flow where you can accomplish way more than you thought is possible. It's about being able to consume and analyze tons of information much faster and learning how to delegate and outsource things that you don't want or don't have time to do.

I worked long and hard to gather all these tips that really helped me to become more productive and enabled me to get several educational degrees while pursuing various jobs and projects of my own. I hope this course will become a platform for its students to learn a lot and share their own experiences of what worked for them and what did not. I'm going to update the course on a weekly basis with more useful tips and techniques so that you are guaranteed to be on the verge of best productivity techniques out there.

1. Introduction: it doesn't matter what you do away, you work. Everyone is looking for ways to be more productive during the day and give the highest productivity levels without disruptions as long as possible about excessive amounts of caffeine and to do is making will not get you any closer to reaching productivity levels nowadays. So why are we also obsessed with productivity? It's probably because in this digital age, stay in contrast and avoiding destruction coming from all corners is harder to accomplish any actual work. The one way flight of seems to be like a double rage toward the technology. Facilitates are things on the one hand, the more we're overloaded with obligations on the other. These days, we have so many connections with other people be dull friends, colleagues, relatives. There are so many responsibilities, like on us that if you want to accomplish something, will most probably have to abandon doing cover tasks in such kind of situation, where we have enormous number of tasks, lots of responsibilities and infinite distractions, we usually lose focus and productivity. Most courses unproductive concentrate and find management takings, which teach us how to make full use of our time and do the task that we have to do. But did you know that first of all, standard and most popular time management tips do not shoot every personality? And that's why many of us give up using them after just a few weeks, as they can't stick to them on a daily basis for racial people, for instance, like working in a cozy in financial atmosphere with no strict deadlines, there are completely undertakings how to realize their full potential and become more productive. We are going to upload them in one of our lectures during the course. So what are we going to learn during this course? Basically, first understand ourselves, our way of reading and seeing the world will understand what our goals and to review the complete framework around us, which will make our becoming more productive, even more natural and much easier. These were not only learning time management techniques because we believe they're not the only to be considered productive, but you are also going to talk about our sleeping and eating habits, which will make us feel energetic and active without the entirely. We also discover how to consume huge amounts of information in short time and how to old source and irrigate part of our dust to other people in order to grow our productivity levels exponentially. One of my favorite lectures in this course will show you how to be in the state of flow, so desire to euphoric state of mind and body, where you feel that you can achieve anything and then which the time just flows by while created five years just pop up into your head continuously. After you complete the course, you have created a framework that will work for you. I mean, instead of waiting for an inspiration to come to be more productive, your whole new framework off your lifestyle will make your naturally more productive. Being productive will become a schedule for you. As for a heavy person walking around his dog in the street like all my other courses, this course will be very practical with concrete tips and with some variations based on the differences in people's personalities and social times, so that you can choose their those recommendations that who work best for you. I do not pretend to be a super productive genius, but everything that you explored my course has helped me in different stages of my lifetime , the balance efficiently between personal life and work. I managed to start and finish various business projects off my own work for large government companies. Sometimes even simultaneous, had free completely different full time and part time jobs while getting full time indication degrees one after another for sometimes even in the same time, all these while telling the world and enjoying my life, hobbies and spending time with family members and friends. Well, that's it for the introduction. There's a lot more interesting material to explore further my course. I hope you enjoy the course and please let me know your commence and ideas. 2. Build the framework of your productivity: I think I mentioned in the introduction. For me, productivity's not only time management techniques. It's a complete frame organs your natural way oflife, which makes you be more collective without forced efforts. It's a certain eco system which creates a productive environment. In year 9 4000 and 12 I was doing a full time master's degree at one of the leading most universities while also starting for a candidate degree or PhD in. And I miss eating all these while working in to channel agencies with flexible or nine hours, I have to admit, it was quite challenging and exhausting, period in my life. I started asking myself questions on how we can survive and succeed in this multitude of tasks and responsibilities. The answers to these questions in various experiments with them later formed by understanding that my framework of productivity Here are those questions. The 1st 1 I work in study wrote. The Our sanity are limited. I obviously need to sleep less than eight hours, and I know that some people sleep 5 to 6 hours and feel active for the day. How can I sleep less and feel energetic? How should I change my sleeping patterns. The second question. Sometimes I tend to sleep or nap after I had a new Sometimes I don't want to sleep and feel exhilarated all the way from being away for the last 20 hours. So what foods make you feel energetic for thou today and which absorb your energy? How should I change my eating habits? The next question. Sometimes I work really hard, and there's so much inspiration with lots of creative ideas coming into my mind. But it can control this moments. What should I do? They have inspiration more often. Question number four. Sometimes I waste time dealing important us for a long time. The stars are usually boring court too complicated. I also tend to think too much before making the decision. What should I do? Not lose time and too much thinking, doing and finally making up my mind and getting direction quicker. Sometimes I have free time when I don't know what to do, how to feel my spare hours and minutes and have always something useful to do. Sometimes there are some tedious task. John Monotone is about time consuming. How can I find someone responsible enough to do this work for me and maybe someone who will take some of my other responsibilities to free my time and skill, my productivity. I also tend to consume so much information here in the day where that work or just reading some useful stuff. And I have so many books in my diary, please. How can I learn to read at least two times faster to consume or information rest Time? I once visited the conference where people who are doing Ironman Challenge We're talking about their lives and careers. Although these people were very successful in their careers and worked a lot, they somehow found time to do sport and find time for that 1 to 2 hours daily in their daily shadow on a consistent basis. It made me realize that spending time in sports not only doesn't steal it from you, but quite the opposite amplifies your very productivity. So I asked myself, How can doing, exporting crude my productivity as well? I started researching dancer to these questions. Sometimes I found completely different answers, opinions and recommendations, but I tried many of them, and then I came up with a set of techniques, skills, habits, and knowledge that was really helping me feel more energetic and active without day and became much more efficiently without making excessive efforts. This is the complete productivity framework that I was talking about. I built on answering the above questions that bothered me about my record productivity in the past. And in the next episode, I'm going to share this answers with you and how we can build them into our daily routine. 3. Improve your Sleeping Habits. Feel better and do more while sleeping less: average person sleeps about eight hours a day. It means that you encounter lifetime. We sleep about 25 to 30 years of pure time. Have you ever thought about that? Can you imagine what we could achieve in our lives? And how many more things we could do if we could use at least five years of that precious line one hour less every day? Now we're not speaking about completely deprivation, which is forced effort to sleep much less than we need. We're talking about how to change our sleeping patterns so it'll be so that we feel absolutely normal even after sleeping less than we're accustomed. But before we dive into how we can improve those speaking patterns, let's explore why sleep is so important and what happens it will get for sleep to understand why sleep is important. Think if your body, like a factory that performs a number of vital functions your in the way. As you go to sleep. The night shift of repair and maintenance stuff start. They work in order to do the outcomes off the day During the night, damage cells in the body are healed. Immune system is boosted to normal levels. Body recovers from the day's activities Heart and carrier vascular system is recharged for the next day. We have all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night's sleep. This is exactly because during the night your body has been repaired and recharged. We should also know is that you're in color sleep. We experience two different types of sleeping faces, not appetite movement and tributary movement. Both faces are important for different functions in our bodies. Non rapid eye movement sleep typically occupies 75 to 80% of total sleep each night. During the sleep, we experience many health benefits, such as tissue growth and repair. Energy restored and home ones that are essential for growth and development are released. Movement sleep typically comprise 20 to 25% of total sleep. Each night you're in crime sleep. We experience dreams, which is necessary for our minds to process and consider the emotions memories into relieves stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning, stimulating the brain regions, Houston Learning and developing for your skills. As you can see, there's tremendous number of advantages that the good sleep brings to our bodies that it short. Having good sleep means improvement off memory. If you're trying to learn something, whether it's physical or mental, you learning to a certain point with practice. But something happens while he's sleeping that it makes you learn it better during sleep against 10 for memories or practice skills learned while we were awake. This process is called consolidation. Spur of creativity in addition to consolidating, memories were making them stronger. You bring appears to reorganize and restructure them, which may result in more clarity it as well. That's why, if you're creative designer or an artist, it is vitally important to get good sleep regularly, improve mental abilities. Good sleep has been shown to improve problem solving skills. The more tired you are, the harder it is to concentrate on something, and destruction can hamper both work and your personal life. So if you want to focus either on the job or conversation, make sure to get some rest. Improve immune function according to number of studies, people who get enough sleep are three times less likely to catch a cold than those who don't get it would sleep. So instead of going to the pharmacy to buy some pills, just trying to get some good sleep. Keep feeding, build muscles. There is a reason that fitness magazines and coaches always focus on the importance of sleep. If you don't sleep properly, you can't build muscle. Your body uses most of the night to heal damage done to yourself and fissures when you were awake at the start of the night. Your body also releases growth hormones, which help your body build muscles and new cells and tissues. Lack of sleep, on the other hand, can cause muscle atrophy. Started aging along queen mood disorders. Sleeping poorly is also associate with chronic skin conditions. Some research shows that coarsely depression, anxiety and chronic skin problems will go together according to a number of research. People who used to get good sleep showed fewer signs of aging. Better actions overalls transfer is not necessarily affected by losing tonight sleep, but after one sleep deprived night deconstruction warrant as quick. It is believed that this is caused by diminished ability to use information to make decisions. Now, if your body doesn't get a chance to properly recharge, you're already starting the next day at the disadvantage you might find yourself feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed. If this happens, might after night. It plays a tremendous change you nervous system, body and overall health. So if you're not sleeping oil or and feel impressive when you wake up in the morning, it is important to reconsider your sleeping patterns or talk to your doctor. So what might happen to you if you don't sleep properly? The first problem is opacity for sleep is strongly linked to weight gain. People with that sleep tend to wait significantly more than those who get adequate sleep. In fact, short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity. In one message for of you study Children adults with short sleep duration, 89% and 55% more likely to become abyss. The effect of sleep on weight gain is believed to be mediated by numerous factors, including four months and moderation to exercise. So if you're trying to lose weight, getting quality sleep is absolutely crucial. Corning diseases We know that sleep quality and duration can have a major effect on many risk factors. These are defectors believed to drive Corning, the Cesars, including car disease and diabetes review 15 studies found that shorter bets leaders are at far greater risk of car disease or a stroke than those who had enough hours of sleep on a regular basis. Depression. Mental health issues such as depression are struggling to poor sweet quality, and sleeping disorders has been estimated that 90% of patients with depression complain about sleep quality. Poor sleep is even associated with increased risk of death by suicide, negative effects on emotions and social interactions. So we close reviews is our ability to interact socially? Several studies confirmed this using emotional facial recognition that one study also found that people who had slept poorly had a reduced ability to recognize expressions of finger and happiness. Researchers believe that poor sweet affects our ability to recognize important social cues and process emotional information. You should also know that staying awake too long can cause worsen speech, propensity for the usage and the slow, monotonous stone. So make sure to get some residue for your next presentation. The interest mistakes that we don't always recognize it will make more mistakes when we don't get enough sleep for some fast that announced a type of here and there which is annoying to our editors. But such carelessness can be more serious. One study of 50,000 people in Sweden found that lack of sleep made people twice as likely to die in very starts of accidents in the USA. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported in 2000 and nine that being tired accounted for the highest number of federal single card Ronald for their old pressures you to the driver's performance even more than alcohol. This is probably due to the fact that sleeplessness affects reaction time and decision making, risky financial decisions. When people are tired the way they make financial decisions changes instead of trying to minimize lost, they start looking for risking begins. That's a good reason to make sure you sleep before making any purchases. Exposure to pain. Not getting enough sleep makes people more sensitive to pain, which can lead to a terrible cycle for chronic pain sufferers that show that keeping people are a whole night makes it easier for them to feel pain. Now that we have learned what are the benefits of a good sleep and how poor, sweet the damages, everybody, let's find out how we can achieve a good sleep, since our task is to become more productive. We have two goals in mind decreased daily hours of sleep, as much as possible without deteriorating and even while improving the quality of sleep. How can we combine these two things well? To start with, it seems all those that the more you sleep better, you should feel after you wake up. But it's not necessarily true. When I started to observe my sleeping habits with the aim to improve them to become more productive, I noticed several interesting things thirst. If I sleep, say, 10 hours after starting day, I feel sleepy and moody the whole day after I wake up. I consider such days when I spent more than nine hours sleeping as lost for me. So sleeping Keller doesn't mean that you feel good the next day, and I think which I noticed is that I wake up much easier and feel much better if I sleep for a certain amount of hours. But I noticed about myself. Is that my feeling being completely awaken, exhilarated, dependant nothing. The amount of hours I slept by each other on some certain time proportions, after which I woke up for me. It turned out that sleeping six hours is better than sleeping six. And how for seven hours and sleeping for seven in the health ours is better than sleeping for seven or eight hours. I tried to write down all these numbers and how I felt for several months, and it turned out that I wake up much easier if I wake up after intervals off 90 minutes. Thes directly corresponds to the program and interim sleeping cycles that we should mentioned in the beginning off the episode. So let's start with the first task. How to decrease the number of sleeping hours. Well, there are different methods, but the one that is one of the most productive is multi phase sleeping. As you have probably guessed. It means that you sleep not one time a day for eight hours straight, but he sleeps several times today. Multi face sleep can help you use the hours of sleep 24 or five hours a day, and it would still be as productive as if you slept the full eight hours in car. Understand Facebook? Why we never the office is that under sleep deprivation, the ability to remember and analyze information in multi phase regime is higher than in on a face or by face regime. First variation of this multi face Lee is a by face regime which is sleeping quantum for 5 to 7 hours at night and have a nap for 15 to 20 minutes during the daytime. Second variation is called the Everyman Region, which is sleeping corn time at night for two or three hours and then three times 20 minutes each during the day in direction. Region you sweet four times a day, 30 minutes each, every 5.5 hours in the German regime and then get 6 20 minutes naps after free hours and 40 minutes. Of course, it's pretty hard to do if you started a war learners. Lynch is considered to have slept 15 minutes every two or three hours sleeping in the alderman regime. However, there is no known proof for that. It is also believed that the most time saving sleep regime was used by Nikola Tesla was left two hours at night and 20 minutes during the day. His honor of this regime is also unofficially called Tesla in the dryer tribe for example, or members practice multi faced sleep during their entire life. They consider long periods of sleep to be harmful. And let's not forget that most animals use multi face week two. As you can see, there are different variations off multi phase sleep, and he have to practice and choose which one would suit you better in ordinary circumstances. It will be difficult, of course, to find time during the day to have some sleep if you are in the office. But what I did when I used to work at two jobs inside at the same time is that I tried to sleep even a couple of minutes where I could find time. I used to have short naps in subway or in the bus, and even if my computer that's at work, it really helped me to do much better afterwards. Even when your head falls for a couple of means or even less, it feels like you have been reset like a computer. Now I tend to have a nap during the day for 20 to 40 minutes whenever possible. It makes me feel awake during the day, and I sleep approximately one or two hours less than usual during the night. Now the second point in this episode is choosing the perfect time. Went to wake up. Very beneficial way to wake up refreshed despite minimal sleep, is to wake up during a period of your life. Asleep. Being broken in the light stage of your sleep cycle has proven to make people feel more energetic and alert. Upon awakening, the beginning stages of sleep prepares your body to shut down. Do you understand? She can be easily awakened by a noise or thoughts. The middle stages involved flight sleep, usually resting anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes Deep sleep a course in the later stages, when activity in the body's role and activity in the brain is very high rents. Sleep is the last stage of the sleep cycle, where for about 70 to 90 minutes way are in our deepest sleep. This is the stage of sleep where we dream when were awoken. During this stage, we often feel these oriented the cycles repeat for that deny them into the morning. Waking up in the beginning stages of your sleep cycle is important because everybody's aren't entirely shut down. Meanwhile, being open in the middle of France, Lipkin goes Grogan is that has the potential to lost without the morning and even for the other day. This explains why sometimes even when we sleep for eight or nine hours, we can sometimes still feel like we barely got any rest at all. But how do you wake up during July to sleep?

If you easily get lost in details and never complete your task in time, well, it all sounds pretty easy. You're going to see, but I tried it and time management doesn't really work for me. Let's looking more details In event, any time management book describes the productive person is being punctual professional controls his time and use a special software to planet his day. But it's used for everyone. Of course not. There is a category of people for which thorough planning doesn't yield many results. Psychology, astrology and esoteric sciences defined two kinds of people rationally and irrationally. Operational is our systematic, organized and thoughtful generationally are those who are spontaneous, impulsive and flexible in uncertain conditions. You will be surprised to learn that only half of the world's population is rational. The other half is irrationally and standard time management takings simply do not work for them.

So how do you manage time if I'm interational East? Well, first of all, stop focusing on one task operational people focusing and prioritizing his key.

Productivity played the guitar for one hour. Go read a book for half an hour than answer emails, then do that Excel table for an hour hour, Then talk to a client. Variety is key. Listen to your inner voice and be spontaneous. In a week you will be surprised, but what you have achieved, and in half a year nobody's gonna believe that this is possible.

When you work on a task or a project and you get so excited and fully immersing that in the metro off hours, you come up with so many creative ideas and perform just enormous amount off work and do not notice how the time flows by actually have. In fact, most of us every now and then, experience such state of mind when we are super productive and stay completely focused. And what is more important, do not get from that huge and sometimes difficult workers that we are doing. This is called the State of Flow. You just plunge into specific work, and it's like a strong current of the river and the transit along all the issues connected with the corresponding subject. Interesting point enough. In some cases, during this condition, you don't usually make a lot of efforts to do something. He just comes along your way. For instance, writers are particularly fond of the flow because during the state they can write an engaging content for hours. Ideas just keep flushing into their minds. Efforts and sportsmen may experience similar feelings when everything just goes brilliantly and they can feel that they are in the zone. Footballers can score head treats and one team's humiliating defeat. Others, it seems, to most of us that it is impossible to control from the state is generated and how to maintain it for as long as possible. However, there are some techniques that can enable us to easier enter the state of flow almost at any time at our own well at the flavorless switch. Here are a few tips how to do it, including those based on my own experience and practice. First of all, we should understand that these positive emotions airflow derive when we realize that we are succeeding in doing something which seems to be difficult or challenging. For example, we needed to write an article of 10,000 words, which seemed quite difficult to us. But we managed to pull ourselves together and now keep writing, and it seems that the wars just go by or were trying to solve a truly difficult mathematical equation or economic problem. And here we are, sitting for hours and ideas of how the Soviet keep coming to our mind, and we understand that we're making real progress for imagine We're playing table tennis with a strong opening or playing difficult musical play, and you can see that we are making it really cool. So the flow only happens when we perform a challenging task, which requires concentration of our efforts and skills, and we can see and feel that we're making progress in it. That's why the first think of how to enter the state of flow is to actually start doing the challenging task that lies in front of here. Yes, that's exactly what my first advice is. Usually, a challenging task is quite difficult, and we keep putting it off. However, we should make a start and stop procrastinating because first we'll have to start doing it anyway. And second, the nice feeling will flow. Lies exactly there in the midst off difficulty and challenge, and you have to stop being afraid or lazy. So just go and start doing it. The next step is to fully concentrate on the task you're doing. Scientists have measured that our brain can process not more than 110 bits of information in a second to understand the meaning off the worst, another person saying, takes us approximately 60 beats per second. That's why we cannot understand when two people are talking to are simultaneously. So if you want to hack into the state of flow, you have to concentrate on that. That's completely down to every detail. In this case, there won't be any mental capacity off yours to process anything else that is. You won't be able to think about hunger, fatigue or any other stuff. You will even lose your control of time to be able to better concentrate on your work. Make sure that there is nothing to distract you. Put away your form, turn off all messaging caps and look out off all social networks on your computer and smartphone. Sometimes it's better to set yourself a certain time period during which you're going to concentrate on doing exactly what you were planning to do. Not thinking about time constraints enables you not to be distracted from unleashing your full potential. The next thing you should do to enter the state of float actually different, depending on what you're trying to do. It would be strange to hear that one size fits all for all people to be able to dive into the zone using the same principles. In my opinion, we can differentiate between those tasks that require the use of creative thinking, for example, artists, writers or designers and those where the successful outcome depends on being cable to avoid mistakes like athletes, Speed Racer's scribblers, workers and so on. So for the first group of people, that is where creativity is important. You should be able to stop being afraid of making a mistake. Try to read your comfort zone and experience unknown. Think out of the box. Take risks. When you started experimenting, more and more strange and uncommon ideas will come into your mind, and you will actually find yourself in the flow. For the second group of people, where the successful outcome depends on your ability to fulfill something according to the ideal scenario, without making a single mistake, it is important that we keep repeating the same task again and again. In this case, the full will come during this process of constant repetition, and they will start seeing the very small details of how you can improve your performance every now and again. For example, athletes, professional swimmers or Speed Racer's keep repeating the same task again and again, each time improving the results for very tiny values off for milliseconds. They start feeling how each of their muscles moves and what impulse and impact they give to the overall performance. They start actually feeling can leaving every second of their work every detail to the fullest possible time just slows down for them while their mental and physical abilities go into overdrive. Basically, that's all the deeps off how to consciously enter the state of flow personal. Use these ideas when I want to achieve better results and stay more productive. For example, when I need to write an article and it doesn't come to me to start trying to get, I first actually put myself together and sit in front of my computer with the commitment to start doing the task. Then I put away all possible destructions and tell myself that at least the falling one hour I'm going to do only writing, and I opened up my mind and just start writing what comes to my mind. After a couple of minutes, more envoy ideas come to me. I started researching them and drink about them in more detail, and that some of them into my writing until Buatta. My article is finished, and it's even longer than I was originally planning it to be without a hand. When there is a scripless work like in front of me, such as Master and Patrik in Aikido, for instance, or learning can melody on the guitar, I just commit myself to repeating it as many times as necessary to get the best possible result. Unlike the previous example, we've writing an article in this case, I know exactly how the final outcome the Tree Cora malady should look right. So I just keep repeating it until its success. If my mind sleeps away, I join it back to the task. I fully nursing the first of doing that us exactly as it should be done. You're the straps. I find myself in a state of flow where I can feel every single muscle of my body concentrate in order to deliver that desirable outcome. I also find some hidden connections or hints, which I wasn't aware off before I started working on the task, which helped me to achieve the necessary results. Okay, let's forget what is a floor and how we can hack into it. The flu is a state of mind where you're most productive, fully concentrated in one thing you are doing and experience positive emotion from doing this thing. To get into this state, we need to actually start doing the task. Put away all personal distractions and concentrate completely under the task. If it is a creative challenge, then think out of the box and start experimenting and embrace all uncommon ideas that come to your mind. If it is a task which doesn't require creativity by trying to scrupulous foreign Corbett, rules and procedures keep repeating as much as necessary until we succeed in it. These are my ideas behind the state of flow. If you have your own Heene's of how to get into it and how it works for you, leave your commands so long can see in the next episode. 7.

Four out of these five stages for non rapid eye movement sleep, each progressively going into deeper sleep. Stage 1 and stage 2 are the phases of light sleep, while Stage 3 and Stage 4 are the phases of deep sleep. In fact, the third and the fourth stages are so similar in their brainwave pattern and non-function, then they are often referred together as the third stage for simplicity, bringing the total number of stages of sleep from five to four. The final few stage is known as rapid eye movement sleep. Rapid eye movement phase is sometimes called paradoxical sleep, because brain activity during this stage resembles the weak state of the brain activity. Now the rapid eye movement sleep typically occupies from 75 to 80 percent of total sleep each night. During non rapid eye movement sleep, we experienced many health benefits, such as the chagrin of entropy or energy is restored and hormones that are essential for growth and development are released during the light sleep phase as our brain prepares for memorizing information for the next day. While during deep sleep, our brain consolidates information by transferring from a short-term memory to long-term memory. The quality deep sleep is also what makes us feel well rested. Rapid eye movement sleep typically occupies 20 to 25 percent of total sleep each night. During REM sleep, we experience dreams, which is necessary for our minds to process and consolidate emotions, memories, and relieve stress. It is also thought to be vital for learning. Can creativity? Understanding the brainwave patterns during wakefulness and sleep is also important to complete the picture about brain and sweep. There are five brainwaves taking turns in prevalence as we move through the wake-sleep cycle. Each of them has a specific frequency amplitude, and sheep, during the day, we are mostly governed by beta and gamma brainwaves. As we transition into sleep, alpha waves slowly takeover. We still have some focus, but it's getting more and more relaxed. Then we move into theta brainwave state, a transition point to a deeper sleep. Then the Delta brainwave activity takes off, bringing costs into a deep sleep. Delta waves preferred ten PM to 2AM, our window. This is when we can maximize time spent in deep sleep. As the night goes on, the time you spent in deep sleep shorthands with every cycle, all the stages are required for the specific biological process of the body. Each one is crucial and they cannot be replaced. At the same time, they can be interrupted by the choices we make and things were exposed to.
