Sleep and Bed Size

Ginny and I have worn devices that monitor our sllep, letting us know the amount of light sleep and deep sleep each night. I'm not sure about what those sleeps define but when I get more deep sleep I feel better and more alert.

If I don't get enough sleep I take a 22 minute nap. Invariably those naps are all deep sleep. The naps all take place in a confined space, on the couch. Is there something about a small space that results in deep sleep?

We find that we sleep particularly well in the trailer, our 'little bigger than a twin bed'. Is it because of the confined space?

The reality that all the big beds we seem to demand these days are relatively modern. Of course most of us have become bigger than people used to be.

A Thought

I like sleeping on a smaller bed. I don't mind sleeping on a full size bed. I also find I sleep better in my trailer than at home. Maybe it's because we do more exercise while camping. Last time we went camping we actually walked 6 miles.

Hi: MarkyVasquez... I think the best sleep in the trailer syndrome is directly related to the fact that all home work will be there when you get back!!!

You're certainly partially right, the exercise helps. As well the getting away from "it all". Whatever "it all" is.

Alf, We've 'Escaped' the home work, like many long range travelers, by selling the house. There's a feeling of freedom with disposing of a responsibility, sort of like the kids graduating from college to employment.

It's also so quiet when we camp. We don't realize that cars, motorcycles, sirens and all kinds of city noise can actually wake us up. Also it's a lot darker in most campgrounds. I've read that keeping the room dark 30 minutes before sleeping will release melatonin, a chemical we use to sleep. We don't realize there is light from our led displays and indicators, light from the corner light outside and other sources can leak into our bedroom and prevent the production of melatonin. Just saying.
