How to Meditate

Understanding the Sleep Cycle to Maximize it’s Benefits


Sleep Cycle
In this second video in the series, I teach what is happening when we sleep, and how both the brain and the body react to sleep. I also explain the different stages of sleep: drowsiness and falling asleep, the two light sleep stages, deep sleep, and finally, REM sleep (where most dreaming occurs). I explain how each cycle takes an average of 90 minutes to complete before starting all over again.

In addition, I teach how meditation is like sleep, and how it is different from sleep. My conclusion offers insight into some philosophical teachings about sleep and wakefulness, which puts a perspective on the importance of good sleeping. In short, you will understand the stages of sleep, the cycles of sleep, and why it is so beneficial to improve your sleep and how meditation can improve sleep.
