Not a morning person? There’s an app for that and it’s called Sleep Cycle. We all know there are different stages of sleep: the stage where your body jerks, the stage where you get freezing cold, followed by the stage where you get really hot, the stage where you talk in your sleep and many more that probably have scientific reasoning behind them. Regardless of what you do in your sleep, we all experience phases when we are in our deepest sleep and when you wake up during this time you are the most tired. Sleep Cycle wakes you up in your lightest sleep phase so you wake up feeling energetic and ready to tackle the day ahead. Here’s how it works.
If you’re that person in the office always rolling in a little late because you spent your morning fighting with your alarm clock, or if you need 12 cups of coffee to make it through the day, give Sleep Cycle a try. Productive mornings lead to productive weeks and happy employees!
