Hello Sleep Fans!
I've been using Zeo for about three weeks now - it's really a great tool and my sleep quality has already improved (mostly because it became obvious to me that I was not sleeping enough, and that chocolate in the evenings was keeping me awake).
However, I'm still puzzled by one thing: my low REM score, which is generally somewhere between 30 and 40 mins per night. I KNOW I feel better during the day when I've had more REM (because it has happened a few times).
So, I'd really like to know how I can boost this REM score. The research I've done so far has not been very productive: "sleep more" is the main theme (as more REM happens in morning…).
Fine, I've tried that:
last Friday night I slept… 9h19 mins (ZQ 95), but only got… 45 mins of REM!
I drink very little alcohol, am in good physical shape, don't smoke, don't drink coffee or tea after lunch, sleep about 7h30 per night (since Zeo), work out a couple of times a week, regularly practice yoga, eat healthily… I fall asleep quite easily at night, and deep sleep is stable, between 50 and 60 mins per night.
Any help or suggestions concerning boosting REM would be most welcome!
