Getting enough sleep can do wonders for both our physical and mental health and if you want to get the most out of your bedtime ritual then it’s key that you go to bed and get up at the right time.
There’s an online calculator that can help you! The calculator determines this by using the body’s natural sleep pattern-which works in 90 minute cycles.
Being woken by an alarm during one of the 90-minute cycles is often what makes people feel groggy in the morning – making it seem harder to get up out of bed.
The sleep calculator, can work out the time you need to go to bed to make sure you wake up with a spring in your step.
Want to wake up feeling fresh at 7am? Head to bed at 9:46pm, 11:16pm or 12:46am for you night owls.
But if you want a little more sleep and don’t want to getting up at 7am and instead want to face the day at 8am, then you can go to bed at either 10.46pm, 12.16am, 1.46am or 3.16am.
“Using a formula based on the body’s natural rhythms, the Sleep Calculator will work out the best time for you to rise or go to sleep.”
