Sleep stages - this is how sleeping works

Healthy sleep is an active, rhythmically recurring process that promotes physical and mental recovery. It is made up of 2 clearly distinguishable states:


Non-REM sleep (stages 1 - 3)


REM sleep (dream sleep)

Sleep goes in cycles. A sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes and consists of REM and non-REM stages 1 - 3.

We experience four to six such sleep cycles every night.


In the first half of the night, the deep sleep phases predominate, in the second half of the night the REM phases, in which there is a lot of dreaming.

During one night, a person goes through four to five cycles of fixed sleep stages. Starting with thatLight sleep (Stages 1 and 2) this leads toDeep sleep (Stage 3) and then toREM sleep, in which there is a lot of dreaming.
