Better sleep despite only sleeping for six hours.


Bedroom seems to be something of a Faraday cage.

That could have benefits as well as annoyances.

I find it more an annoyance than benefit. In the '70s my dad increased the insulation of their house (block construction) by adding foam panels to the interior, said panels had foil on one side. Instant Faraday cage. WiFi doesn't cover the entire house, and for the most part cell phones only work when standing next to certain windows.

For me, I control my phone's ability to annoy me during sleep time by having it set to Do Not Disturb mode during appropriate hours. DND turn(s/ed) off five minutes before the alarm sounds (depending on if I'm working). I had the volume on high for the alarms, and at 2am one day a spam text came in and woke me up, ruining a good night of sleep. That was my first implementation of DND. Because of my dad's health, my family knows how to dial past the DND, but I doubt they remember.

There is a chance that you would normally only sleep for six hours, provided that it was a good sleep.

What led me to look into getting a CPAP was finding that I felt like crap even if I got eight hours of sleep.

The reason I did the sleep study was that anesthesiologists were recommending it urgently based on my blood oxygen levels dropping drastically when sedated for surgery. The convincing aspect of the sleep study was that I desaturated every 45 seconds during it. That's what keeps me using the machine despite not really adjusting to it and not sleeping super well with it. Oxygen levels seem more important than a dry mouth!

But I wish I could report better sleep like other people get!
