I have been using zeo for a few weeks now, and gradually increasing my total sleep, but one area I would like to improve is deep sleep (I have read the article where it says “rule 1 is don’t talk about deep sleep…”
That being said I understand that – avoiding caffeine esp late in the day, avoiding alcohol at least 3 hrs before bed, and gettin exercise should all increase deep sleep.
What’s weird is I have had no alcohol for the past few weeks, averaging about 1 hr of deep sleep in 7.5 hrs of sleep. Last night with 2 glasses of wine (pretty much right before bed) I only got 6.5 hrs of sleep but 1.5 were deep, higher overall but a much higher percentage.
I would rather get more sleep overall… and I don’t plan on drinking before bed in general…but just curious about why this occured. Could it be that I wasn’t really in “deep sleep” (restorative) but was in some sort of alcohol induced non-restorative sleep?
