So yesterday Liz was telling me about this application called “Sleep Cycle” that tracks your sleep cycle (I know, not obvious or anything) and then wakes you up at the lightest part of your sleep, so you wake up feeling refreshed. It also graphs your sleep pattern, and then shows you when you get up. Downside? You have to leave it plugged in all night, and leave the screen “on” so that it works. Also, if you’re like me and flail, you may or may not through it off your bed in the morning. And, if you sleep with someone else, and they bumble around a lot, they can potentially throw your graph off, as we learned when Jeff and I tested it last night by having him move around. But, I think it’s pretty accurate. Upside? It’ll email you your graph, if you’d like, which yes, I would, thank you very much.
It woke me up this morning at 6:13 am, and even said “Good morning!” on it, which was nice. I ended up ignoring it and sleeping until 6:40 (Corelyn had an appointment this morning, so I didn’t have to get up) but we’ll see how it goes the rest of the week.
From the app:
Went to bed / woke up: 10:16 PM / 6:13 AM
Total time: 7h 56m
