Sleep your way to the top

Improving your sleep quality you can improve your health, enhance your judgment, balance your mood, and even increase sensory perception.

When you first fall asleep, you enter the quiet sleep phase. This is when your body “let’s go”, your brain is at its most inactive and your heart and circulation are under less stress than when you’re awake. The first part of quiet sleep should only last a few minutes, if you are healthy. The second part follows in uninterrupted blocks of about 30 minutes. This is your deepest sleep of the night.

Delta sleep, also known as body sleep, comes in blocks of 1.5-2 hours, during which you swing from deep to light sleep (when you are most easily woken up).

It is the delta sleep phase that is crucial for physical activity. During deep delta sleep, an increased blood supply to the muscles repairs any damage you’ve done to your body during the day. But the good news is, with one subsequent night of good sleep, your immune system can get right back in action. REM (rapid eye-movement) is the period when you dream most vividly. This recurring period lasts about 30 minutes, and gets longer and closer together towards the end of the night. REM is known as brain sleep.

How to find a partner

So, you want to find a partner. Well, sincerity is the best policy – be yourself. And if you meet someone who resembles you, physically or mentally, then all the better. “Simply put, opposites don’t attract, but similar types do,” says Dr. Robin Russell of London University, who has spent a decade studying patterns of attraction. On average, the more similar you are to your partner in every way, from personality and attitudes to appearance and obscure physiological factors like elbow shape, the more you’re likely to get on.

There are any number of theories why. Early life might programme you to seek partners who resemble your parents – and by extention resemble you. Or possibly you make a random choice, but within your social environment there’s more than reasonable chance you will choose people who resemble you than not.
