according to sleep cycle, last night, my sleep quality was at 49% (this is compared only to all the nights i’ve been tracking; since june 25). it looks like i slept between midnight and 1 and then from 1:15 to 1:30. then i finally fell asleep again at 5:30. this is also after taking 12mg of melatonin throughout the night. :/
here’s the chart of my “sleep” last night:
i emailed the developer (at 2:30 in the morning) with some ideas for people who don’t sleep well, and they got back to me right away with a thanks and a maybe. one of the suggestions is to be able to edit the alarm time. at 5, i wanted to change my alarm time to 8, but couldn’t, so i ended up stopping the data collection at 7 and turning on my iphone’s native alarm for the time that i needed to get up, so there is an hour and a half of data missing.
inconsistent sleep can be dreadful to one’s health, too. i’d almost rather have fun at happy hour and get a decent amount of sleep than roll around for six hours every night.
it does seem, however, that the worse i sleep, the lower my resting heart rate. i wonder if it gets higher because of dreams i have during rem cycles.
