Have been having erratic sleep of late.

I can’t think of anything specific, so maybe this is a phase. Also, since Rohāmrta sleeps next to me, maybe I am a bit more careful and hence sleeping more lightly. I do recall writing about this in June last year, so the ‘phase’ seems to be quite long this time around.

Funny that we spend a lot of time trying to make more so that we can err…sleep well at night. I guess I have to spend more time on the exercise mat rather than in front of a computer. But I am exercising my grey cells na? Apparently that doesn’t count as much:(

I also have to eat lesser and work on the redesigning (again) of my food schedule. Hate to call it a diet coz it isn’t. All I do is think of how to change what I eat so that I don’t get bored of it.

So many things to do, so much to learn..and so much to sleep!

Sleep tracking.

Yes, been reading a lot about it lately. My sleep patterns have been disturbed, mostly due to a disruption of my exercise schedule. So while I struggle to get that back, I have been trying to measure my sleep patterns to know more about the subject.

Today’s wearable tech still has a long way to go, but there are quite good options out there. First is the Apple Watch, which (if you settle in on a disciplined charging schedule) can be a basic sleep tracker. Combine it with the Sleep Cycle App, and you can get a good idea of the quality of your sleep. The Sleep Cycle app can also record your snores (err) among other things.

There were the Oura Ring and Whoop Band that I also researched on – the former looks stunning but their customer service apparently sucks. The latter is a subscription-based product, which makes a great revenue stream but I guess it will be a duplication after the Apple Watch.

With iOS and the Watch, keeping track of your health has become very easy. Wait, this is not a promo post for Apple:)) You can use Fitbit or any other credible wearable – but I have experience with the Apple ecosystem, and so can tell you more about it. In between the steps, and the breathing exercises, tracking your fitness and overall health is now necessary – use tech for your overall well-being, instead of being addicted to it!

Any ideas on more such products? Do message. And sleep well!
