I’m Glad You’re Here! Quality of Deep Sleep

Welcome to my ‘Happy Deep Sleep’ site.

For most of my adult life, I’ve experienced poor quality sleep. There are times when I still feel tired when I get up in the morning. Do you ever feel that way?

Quality of Sleep Effects…

Quality of Sleep, Body, Mind and Spirit

I know for me, my quality of sleep, whether good or bad, definitely affects my body, my mind, and my spirit, or temperament, and in how well, or not well, I interact with others during the day. I believe this is the case for most everybody.

Our lack of good sleep affects the decisions we make, and the relationships we have.

Understanding Sleep Patterns and Other Influencers

I know that understanding our sleep patterns, as discussed in my article, “Sleep Patterns for Adults – What’s Normal“, and the sleep patterns of our children, as discussed in my article, “How To Help My Baby To Sleep – Six Scientifically-Based Strategies“, our sleep environment, what we eat before we sleep, our moods, our mindsets before we sleep, our relationships or discussions before bedtime, our environment, the clothing we wear to bed, all can affect the quality of our sleep.

A Good Decision Is Based on Knowledge

A Good Decision is Based on Knowledge

There was a Greek philosopher by the name of Plato, who once said, “A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.” The more you and I know about sleep, the better decisions we can make toward bettering our sleep, based on the facts that I gather.

I intend to research the medical and scientific areas of sleep, and share my findings with you, so that together we can make decisions that will improve our quality of life by getting good sleep consistently.

2 Definition of sleep apnea is when we experience abnormal patterns in breathing while we are asleep. An example is obstructive sleep apnea, when a person’s breathing stops for several seconds during the night due to blockage in the upper respiratory system.

  1. I am a very light sleeper. Little noise and I am up. I love to sleep but just cant sleep enough. Hopefully you will guide people like me how to sleep peacefully.

    • Thank you for your comment.

      I am also a light sleeper and wake up to most noises during the night. What I find works for me is wearing earplugs, which really helps muffle any sounds and helps me sleep better.

      Other people have said they like wearing an eye mask to darken the room, which puts them into a deeper sleep, so they don’t hear the distractions.

      I hope you try these remedies. ‘Happy Deep Sleep’ to you,

  2. Hi Joanie,Thank you for this website. The topic is current and a critical issue for many.

    The depth of your sleep is considered more important than the length but
    You are right on with the age requirement. Tell this to the young people.
    I agree with you that having good deep sleep has great benefits to our entire
    I await your continued investigating on the topic.

    Very good work Yeh! Yeh!

    • How great of you to visit Eulalee! I’m glad you appreciate my topic because you understand how important good sleep is. Like you said, as we mature in age we realize even more how a good deep sleep can affect our entire being.

      Come back again. I enjoyed hearing from you. Joanie

    • Thank you for visiting, Gerald, and for your great response. I’m glad that you have a better understanding of how important a good sleep is to our quality of life.

      Take care and come back again, Joanie

  3. Hi Joanie,

    This sounds exciting, I specialize in helping people to optimize their testosterone production & other areas of their wider health.

    Getting enough sleep daily is probably the single most important thing that people can do to optimize testosterone and hormone production.

    I’m always on the look out for methods to help my clients sleep better, so I’ll be returning, looking for gems that I can share!

    • Hi Nate. Thanks for responding.

      Wow, sounds like I could learn a lot from you, too, about how getting enough sleep effects testosterone and hormone levels.

      I look forward to “seeing” you again here, where I will be sharing sleep methods that will also be helpful to your clients.

      My best to you,

  4. I’m glad to learn that a website like yours is there to educate people and show them the best approach to a better night rest. Of course, there are factors that may affect our sleep like the ones you’ve pointed out.

    I’ll be checking on your website from time to time. Nevertheless, I have a question for you. Is falling asleep too fast a sign of a sleep disorder? I do experience this sometimes.

    • Thank you for message, Leon, and for your question. I look forward to you visiting again.

      In answer to your question, falling asleep fast can be a good thing, especially when you’re really tired after physically working hard, and your body is ready for sleep. The question I have, though, is how fast do you fall asleep? And how often do you fall asleep fast? You said you experience this sometimes, so that’s a good thing. Five to 15 minutes to get to sleep is pretty normal. Under five minutes could have other variables to consider, but since you said you experience this sometimes and not regularly, that sounds pretty normal. However, like I said, there are other factors to consider, which will all be part of my research that I’ll be sharing with you all.

      Thanks for the good info.

  5. Having a good sleep and a long one for that matter is very important and crucial to our productivity moving forward. Sometimes I wake up in the morning tired and a little dizzy. Going to work the next day, I may nod off especially if I am less busy. This is because I don’t usually have adequate rest and even sleep. I have a lot I am chasing right now. Hopefully, things will get better sooner.

    I’m looking forward to learning and discovering stuffs related to sleep even as you progress. All the best on your findings…

    • Thank you for your reply and comments, MrBiizy. I appreciate you sharing that you don’t get enough sleep, like so many of us. But I feel for you.

      Having good sleep habits takes discipline, where we need to make sleep a priority and turn off all the surrounding distractions like our cell phone, computer and TV.

      I understand when we’ve got so many things going on in our minds, sleep can be more sporadic and short. Part of my upcoming research will be to explore the areas that we can control that will give us a better quality of sleep.

  6. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article and I think we need enough sleep in everyone’s life. We all know that sleep affects our moods and moods a lot .Lack of good sleep affects the decisions we make and our relationships .Our sleep environment, what we eat before we sleep, the mood, the mentality before we sleep, our relationship before bed, the sleepwear, the bedding, everything influences our quality of sleep. Good sleep can change our quality of life and is improved.We should always keep these alternative things in mind without actually taking sleep pills .And these I think we can all practice very easily .

    Finally, thank you so much again for the suggestions you give in this article and we will all follow your suggestions and hopefully improve the quality of life and get good sleep regularly.

    • Hey, Shanta. You shared so many good things that it makes me happy you read the article so well.

      I do hope you’ll come back and visit and read more findings that I’ll be sharing. As we all learn new information together, and share our experiences with each other, we can all begin to increase our sleep quality and our quality of life.

      Take care,

  7. Hi Joanie. We are all interested in having a good sleep without drugs. Most of us know theoretically some “tricks” to get a good sleep. Here are some: not only what we eat before bed, but how long before, it will induce us a restful sleep. I read that it is advisable to sleep naked for a good sleep. I practically summer lol. It is indicated that the room in which we sleep should have a lower temperature.

    • Hi Carmen, I enjoyed your reply.

      I really like your “tricks” in getting a good night’s sleep. This is an area I will be researching in detail, and then advising people with some tips, like you mentioned, on how to better our quality of sleep.

      Thank you for your interest. Do come back.

  8. Thanks for the great article Joanie.  It was very informative and I couldn’t agree with more, about the importance of good sleep.  I know for a fact from years of personal experience that the quality of sleep is as, if not more important than the quality of sleep.  For the most part, I sleep well, but occasionally, I don’t sleep well and it affects my next day greatly.  I’m sure many can relate.  Keep up the good work.

    • Thank you for your great response, Bob. It sounds like you’ve experienced the difference between quality of sleep and quantity of sleep. You’re right that when we go through our day tired, it can really affects our day.

      Come back again, and take care,

  9. I’m glad that you’re directly addressing an issue that affects a great deal of people. At some points, I have actually woken up feeling really tired. Though I’ve not been very critical of the situation as to pinpoint the exact cause or causes, but it is good to find a resource guide that is dedicated to helping us understand the triggers responsible for poor sleeping habits which can better position us to tackle it properly. It’s wonderful to meet you. Thanks for sharing 

    • Hi Rhain, it’s wonderful to meet you too. Thanks for checking out my site.

      You mentioned having a reference guide for helping us understand the triggers responsible for not sleeping well. And yes, that is part of my plan for future research, and to also recommend resources that will be helpful.

      Stop by again sometime,

  10. Excelent topic! I have always been fascinated by the experience of sleep and how it can affect us during the day, in our physical, our mood, and much more. That we do not realize and believe that it is for something else.

    I have even read how it can affect (up to 4 hours!) The effects of the snoose alarm clock button!

    Do you think that lack of sleep can also affect our perception of things during the day?

    I join this path that you will undertake to learn more about the dream and its effects on notros: good and bad


    • Hi Pablo, thanks for joining me here. I appreciate your comments and your question.

      As you pointed out, there are things as simple as an alarm snooze button that can affect our quality of sleep. And yes, I think the lack of sleep can affect our perception during the day. Our feelings might be hurt more easily, decisions can often be harder to make, and we might even make the wrong decisions.

      I, too, look forward to learning about dreams and how they affect us. Stay tuned, and come back as I share more of my research with you all.


  11. Happy Deep Sleep, perfect site for me, I never seem to get enough sleep, it feels like the older I get, the less I sleep, I at the most get 6 hours of sleep per night, with waking up 1 to 2 times to go to the bathroom. My doctor says it is my age, but I am 56, so by the time I am 67 will I get 4 hours of sleep? I always feel tired, if you could help me with some things I can do, that would be great. I will definitely bookmark this website, Happy Deep Sleep and I will come back to see what maybe could help me. Thanks again, great niche.

    • Thank you for your interest in this topic, Bobbi.

      I am surprised that your doctor said the reason you get less sleep is because of your age when you’re only 56. If you were in your late 60’s or 70’s, then maybe. The National Sleep Foundation categorizes “older adults”, age 65+, need 7 to 8 hours of sleep, while “adults”, age 26 to 64, need 7 to 9 hours of sleep. So according to the Foundation, the required sleep lessens by an hour between those two age groups.

      I will be researching the various age groups in depth, and some of the common reasons why we don’t sleep well, so I invite you back to learn helpful recommendations that will help us sleep better.

      Thanks again for visiting.
