Sleeping Cycles

A few years ago I was introduced to sleeping cycles, something that has helped me a lot in my day-to-day. Did you know that 7 in 15 deaths, in the US, is related to sleep deprivation? So what are these sleeping cycles? 

The sleeping cycles method is a way to wake up and not feel tired or like you would sleep for another 10 hours. They work in 90-minute blocks. This is, you should sleep in 90-minute blocks repeatedly. For example, if you go to bed at midnight you should wake up at 7:30 am. The recommended time you should sleep is 7:30h.
