Sharon borg asked...
Am I getting enough deep sleep?
My fit band tells me I get average of one hour to one and a half hours deep sleep in seven hours overall sleep. Is this enough deep sleep. I am always tired in the mornings.
Studies have shown that your deep sleep should be about 20% of your overall sleep. This means that since most adults need between 7-9 hours of sleep, they will need about 1.6-1.8 hours of deep sleep to feel fully functional next day. This will vary from person to person, some people only require 4-5 hours’ sleep per night and manage well on this.
