Style of Sleeping

As the body goes into a sleeping state, it enters a new world where your conscious mind is taken over by your sub-conscious mind. There are two main stages of sleep, namely, NREM (Non Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep and REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep. There are several other stages between these two clearly distinct stages of sleep. Read on to find out more.

Style 1
This stage can be regarded as the period of transition between a waking and the sleeping state. Lasting for about 5 to 10 minutes, this stage involves the shift from alpha waves to high amplitude and low frequency theta waves in the brain. If someone wakes up during this stage of sleep, they may not even feel that they were sleeping.

Style 2
In stage 2, as the body goes deeper into sleep, the heart rate slows down and the body temperature also drops. The frequency of brain waves is further lowered but the brain begins to produce sleep spindles, which is a burst of rapid rhythmic brainwave activity. This stage may last from 15 to 20 minutes.

Style 3
This stage marks the transition from light to a deep state of sleep. Now, the brain produces delta waves which have a frequency lower than 4 Hz. If someone wakes up during this stage of sleep, they may feel slight disorientation and confusion.

Style 4
Stage 4 is the last stage of NREM sleep and only after this stage does the body enter REM sleep. This is the deepest stage of NREM sleep and it replenishes the physical and mental strength of the body. Stage 4 may last up to 30 minutes.

REM sleep
The final and the most important state of sleep is REM sleep. This begins only after approximately 90 minutes of entering sleep. This is the deepest state of sleep and dreaming only occurs in this stage. REM sleep is characterised by rapid eye movement (as its name suggests), increased brain activity and respiration rate. The body is almost in a state of paralysis as the muscles get completely relaxed. The heightened brain activity leads to dreaming as well as creation of long-term memories. An adult only spends 20 percent of the total sleep time in REM sleep.

The body does not follow a simple transition from one stage to another and after stage 4, stages 2 and 3 may reoccur. Sleep is a complex phenomenon and not just mere loss of consciousness. It is a bodily function which is critical for the other functions of the body to work properly.
