Greg Lindberg Breaks Down the Various Stages of Quality Sleep

September 13, 2023

Orlando, Florida (September 13, 2023)In today’s fast-paced world, the importance of a good night’s sleep cannot be overstated. Sleep is not merely a period of rest; it is a complex process with distinct stages that are crucial for physical and mental well-being.

Health care experts suggest that poor sleep habits, stress, and sleep disorders can lead to health consequences, including cognitive impairment, mood disorders, and an increased risk of chronic diseases.

Wellness Advocate Greg Lindberg helps break down the stages of sleep that can help individuals be healthier, happier and more productive every day.

Stage One – The Transition Phase

This initial stage of sleep is considered the brief period of drowsiness as people drift from wakefulness to sleep. This is when the muscle activity decreases, and people can experience fleeting sensations or thoughts. Lindberg says that during this stage people can get energized and refreshed, allowing them to stay focused and be productive.

Even if you go into stage one sleep or take a 20-minute power nap, you can dramatically improve your ability to memorize, absorb details, and handle social situations,” said Lindberg.

Stage Two – Light Sleep

People can experience the majority of the sleep cycle during this stage. The brain wave activity and eye movements slow down, getting the body into light sleep. Lindberg said people can fall asleep during this time, but they can easily wake up.

Stage Three – Deep Sleep

Stage three, also known as slow-wave sleep, can play a vital role in the cycle of the physical and mental restoration. In stage three, the body’s blood pressure drops, breathing slows and muscles go into full relaxation.

During deep sleep, the body starts to repair, rejuvenate and restore itself, giving you the chance to feel refreshed, relaxed and ready to take on the challenges of the day,” said Lindberg.

REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep

REM sleep allows the body to go into the deepest sleep. This is when most vivid dreaming occurs, and brain activity spikes.

This stage is crucial for cognitive function and emotional well-being,” said Lindberg. “I sleep about eight to 10 hours per night, and this allows me to feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.”

Lindberg says there are some simple ways to improve sleep quality, including establishing a regular sleep schedule, creating a comfortable sleep environment, limiting exposure to digital devices before bedtime, and managing stress through relaxation techniques. If sleep issues persist, it’s important to speak to a health care provider.
