HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, has been scientifically proven to be one the most effective ways to exercise. It burns fat, improves endurance, and builds strength. The idea is that you alternate low/moderate intensity exercises with high intensity exercises.
Our sleep cycle mimics this as well. When we stay too long in a certain sleep stage, we wake up tired or feeling like we need a nap during the day.
There are four basic stages of the sleep cycle.
Many sleep disorders are because we don't get enough REM sleep. REM sleep is like high intensity exercise - quick, intense bursts yet highly effective.
It's not about sleeping more - sleep BETTER.
In this course, I will explain why we need to cycle through each stage, how long each should be, and what happens when we are not going through each stage properly.
