We all know the importance of getting enough sleep. It makes us healthier, more productive, and  generally makes us feel better. When we don't get enough sleep we feel sleepy and lethargic, we are less productive, and we tend to be more susceptible to illness. But, it is possible that when you get to sleep and when you wake up may be more important than how much sleep you get.

There is a website for calculating what time you should go to bed depending on what time you have to get up. It's not based on how many hours of sleep you need but rather where in the cycle you would wake up. Waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired and groggy, but waking up in between cycles lets you wake up feeling refreshed and alert!

 You can find the web calculator here.

The science of sleep is fascinating, and still largely remains a mystery. But, this might be your ticket to a better night's sleep as well as a better day at work.
