It's well known that you should get at least 8 hours of sleep, but people tend to forget how sleep quality is just as important as quantity. Indeed, although the average American sleeps for almost 7-and-a-half hours,35% of the population state they don't feel they've rested enough. Hence the increase in demand for sleep tracking apps and other devices that help figure out problems in our sleep patterns by scanning our vital signs during the night. A poor night of sleep will decrease our productivity by tampering on our intellectual performance, physical accuracy and mood stability. By tracking your vitals during the night, you can change your sleep routine, solve problems and optimize your productivity during your waking hours.

How to improve sleep quality based on your vitals

.

We don't sleep the same way all night long. Our sleep has a total of five stages that cycle several times through the night. Each stage has a different function - resting the body, sorting the mind, recovering from physical wearing, and so on - and an ideal rhythm. These stages are altered during poor quality sleep. It is easy to track them with proper devices, because our vitals, such as our heart rate, our breathing patterns and even our movements change from stage to stage. Many factors will alter our sleep stages, such as the consumption of stimulants like caffeine, the comfort and temperature of the room where we sleep, and even the color of the last light we see before we close our eyes. Many companies offer great information about how to assess your sleeping conditions. For example, blankets too warm or a mattress too soft will prevent us from relaxing and resting properly. Sites like Bedtester.com provide great information on the best products for your sleep quality.

Why sleep tracking apps are all the rage

.

There are many sleep trackers in the market, from intelligent watches to pads you place under your mattress, but so far there is nothing more convenient than a handy phone app to do all the work for us. Some of them are even available for free.What most sleep tracking apps will do is register our vitals and generate a map of our sleeping cycle, and using that information, identify problems and offer solutions. For example, certain alarms will wake us up at the ideal moment of our cycle so we feel rested and in good mood. Others will keep track of our caffeine and alcohol intake, and suggest changes when necessary.
