September 2017 Sleep Check-in

Despite the missing data in August’s check-in, I was able to meet my 10-night target for the month.  This month I just barely missed my 10 nights target.  I had hoped to get the last night on September 30th, but sadly I had stuff to do Saturday morning that got me up earlier than I would have liked.

One thing I noticed is how poorly I sleep when I have a head cold.  This may be obvious to people, but it wasn’t until I saw it graphed out just how much of a toll it takes on sleep when your body is trying to recover.  Not only that, but I saw the benefit of using cough medicine at night, where in the days before I took it, my sleep was disturbed fairly regularly, whereas after I started taking medicine, I was able to get longer periods of sleep in before I became restless.

Check out my stats from Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (pre-cough medicine) versus Thursday night (post-cough medicine):

7 times restless, 14 minutes awake/restless

On Thursday, I felt more rested after taking cough medicine at night despite having less sleep overall.  It just goes to show how important it is to maintain uninterrupted sleep cycles.

Stay Awesome,

Ryan
