Sleep Cycle

New obsession — the Sleep Cycle app on the iPhone. I’m a fan of sleeping and I’m game for anything that makes it better. The app uses the movement sensors in the iPhone to track your activity while you sleep (my understanding says that depending on the phase of sleep you’re in, your breathing patterns as well as the levels of tossing and turning in bed, change) The app claims that it uses the body’s sleep cycle to wake you at the optimal time so you get up feeling refreshed.

I’ve been using it since I purchased the app, which is around a week at this point. I think the sleep tracking is pretty darn right, though it’s been better on some days than others in picking the optimal wake-up time.

Last night though, was perfect —
