This course is part of my overall strategy to get fit after being diagnosed last year with a number of life altering conditions. One of the last puzzles my medical team and I have been working on is my inability to sleep through the night. Thanks to Scott I now have a better understanding of what a good night's sleep entails, and a great list of items I can draw from as I work toward improving my sleep patterns.
Last week I:
I keep track of my steps walked, stairs tread, and sleep patterns through my FitBit, which does not indicate deep vs. light vs. REM sleep, but does breakdown percentage of time in bed that one is actually asleep (I believe it combines REM and deep sleep to determine this figure). Over the course of the seven days, my sleep improved from four to five hours of actual sleep time during my eight and half hours in bed, to just over seven hours asleep!
I also woke each morning BEFORE my alarm, feeling more well rested, and better able to face the world and my university students.
Still to do:
Scott, thank you, thank you, thank you for presenting this information in a succinct, informative matter.
