    Is sleeping in two hour intervals good enough?

    I take Tylenol PM and melatonin to help me sleep. I still wake up about every two hours. At some point I'll take another Tylenol PM. This goes on all night from about midnight until 6 a.m. and then I'll fall into a more prolonged sleep that lasts from 6 until 9. I guess I just wonder if I'm getting enough REM time with that sleep schedule. I feel tired when I wake up, but I get through the day without napping.

    Generally you don't have to worry about your sleep stages per se, that process is autonomic. Better to focus on what you can control, such as the amount of time you spend in bed. You might benefit from skipping the nap, and not allowing yourself to sleep in. Setting and keeping a very consistent wake time 7 days a week might help you a lot. For a complete structure for better sleep, check out CBT sleep training programs.

        My BF having same issue. He is not sleeping well. He wake up too many times. I can feel him. Few days before I was with him in a same room and I felt he did not sleep well due to that he became more cranky at day time. And he did not even take nap when he came back to his room.

    It will always be better to have healthy eight-hour sleep at night but when you are really busy and you need more spare time, you can use some other approaches and yours is fine. I did that sometimes when I was a college student before I started using https://assignmentman.co.uk/ all the time.
