If we tallied up the amount of time spent moaning to anyone in the near vicinity about how tired we are/how much sleep we got last night/that weird dream we had/how tired we still are etc etc, we could probably save ourselves a couple of extra hours in bed.
But then we wouldn’t get to moan, so…
Sleep (or lack thereof), is one of the most searched for terms on the web - not really that surprising since without it we would be unbearable to live with, unproductive at work and eventually, we’d die. So yeah, sleep is pretty good.
When it comes to getting your optimum amount of sleep each night, science has thrown out multiple theories, most being wildly contradictory (can we bank sleep or not?), but all of which we pick and choose from depending on which theory fits our current sleep model.
To take the guesswork out of your nightly gamble, a new site has been created with the sole intention of maximising your sleep.
How it works:
Sleepyti.me tells you the exact time you should go to bed in order to get YOUR BEST SLEEP EVER by picking up ‘optimum’ bedtimes based on the time you have to wake up each morning. According to the site, the average person takes 14 minutes to fall asleep, with sleepyti.me working by counting your sleep cycles, and works with the idea that ‘waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired and groggy, but waking up in between cycles wakes you up feeling refreshed and alert!’
FYI, if you have to get up at 07.30 tomorrow morning, this is when you should go to sleep tonight…
