Sleep Improvement Program
Spending one third of your life on something is no joke.
Must be very important.
How about doing it right?
Sleep Quality and thus the way you feel the next day
depend largely on three main factors:
Sleep Timing, Sleep Consolidation, and Sleep Duration.
Two principal mechanisms are known to control Sleep. The homeostatic need for sleep depends on the time you stayed awake. The longer, the more the homeostatic pressure to fall asleep. The second control is the Circadian Clock. It defines when your organisms is more sleepy and would benefit from Sleep the most.
CAP simultaneously evaluates your Circadian Clock alignment and your Sleep. Once it reaches a set of conclusions on how to improve your Sleep, it may refer you to the in-depth Sleep Improvement Program, SLIP, to further facilitate your homeostatic and circadian control of sleep.
SLIP is addressing not only the main nighttime sleep period but also daytime power naps. Scheduling them in a personalized way that fits your sleep Clocks will greatly benefits your health and performance.
It might be taking you a while to fall asleep and, if you wake up at night, to re-enter restful slumber.
SLIP analyzes your sleep consolidation patterns, finding the principal problems that cause sleep disruption and inability to initiate sleep fast.
SLIP then addresses the problem through several complementary approaches. Those include Circadian control of your sleep, elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi) and use of novel sleep-promoting techniques and helpful gadgets.
SLIP algorithms provide detailed analysis of your optimal sleep duration, which depends on many factors.
To name a few, these include timing of your main sleep episode, your accumulated "sleep debt", latency to falling asleep, the number of nighttime awakenings and how fast you can fall back asleep, type and timing of your pre-sleep meals or exercise, or for how long your morning "sleep inertia" lasts.
SLIP analyzes multitude of sleep-related factors, while guiding you to better rest and thus to better health, mood and performance.
