Manage Sleep Debt
What is sleep debt?
It's sleep deprivation—Sleep debt is a measure of how much sleep you owe your body. When you don't meet your sleep need, you accumulate sleep debt. Sleep debt is accumulated over the past 14 days, so how refreshed you feel today is not just based on last night but the last 14 days!
Rise tracks your sleep debt and this gives you an idea of how you are going to feel. While 0 sleep debt is ideal, it’s not always possible. Try to stay under 5 hours of sleep debt to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed!
Track your energy
Using your sleep data, Rise provides you with a graph of your Circadian Rhythm. You’ll find this graph in the energy tab in Rise. You can use this information to plan your day. Your peaks are when you’ll be feeling your best and most alert. It’s a great time to tick things off your to do list! When the graph dips, that’s a great time for a nap or some low key activities.
Make it a habit
The key to good sleep is consistency! It’s best to fall asleep and wake up at the same time every day (even weekends). Use Rise’s habit feature to get a reminder to help build healthy habits. Rise can tell you when your melatonin window is (the best time for you to fall asleep). When to stop drinking caffeine, which stays in your system for 10 hours and regardless of how you feel disturbs your sleep and much more! With Rise’s habits you can get a little extra help forming positive sleep habits!
