What is Restorative Sleep?

Together, deep sleep and REM sleep are often collectively referred to as ‘restorative sleep.

While all sleep is good for health, the phases of deep sleep and REM sleep are the two sleep stages during which our bodies and minds undergo the most renewal.

During deep sleep, our breathing rate, and blood pressure decrease, and we enter what sleep experts call slow-wave sleep when our brain waves become slow and large.

REM sleep, or Rapid Eye Movement sleep, is a mentally active phase – you might recognize it best by the time of night where you experience your most vivid dreams. In the REM sleep stage, while your breathing and heart rate increases, many of your muscles ‘switch off’ and take some much needed R&R. REM sleep is also the time that assists your emotional processing

But that’s not all that your body is refreshing during its restorative sleep stage – in fact, the list of benefits that sleep produces during restorative sleep is extensive. Sleep helps make you feel hungry or full and reduces your risk of obesity; it affects how your body reacts to insulin; supports healthy growth and development; develops and maintains your immune system and rejuvenates your muscles and repairs damaged tissues.
