It used to be so hard to wake up but now i wake up really easily. Does this mean i'm not getting into deep sleep so that's why it's easier to wake up?

It used to be so hard to wake up but now i wake up really easily. Does this mean i'm not getting into deep sleep so that's why it's easier to wake up?

Morning lark: It is not unusual for people to wake up when sunlight enters their eyes. Getting up early does not necessarily mean that you are losing deep sleep. The latter part of your night is spent largely in rem sleep. True deep sleep would be considered stage n3 sleep. This is a combination of what used to be called stage iii and four sleep. I don't believe that there is any significant correlation between getting up early and losing deep sleep which can occur even earlier in the night. As long as you're not feeling sleepy during the day there should be no problembest wishes and try to get somewhere between six and eight hours of sleep per night. If you find that you are having difficulty then please consult with a sleep disorder specialist. ...Read more

Biting hard: This is called bruxism, which is chronic grinding and/or clenching the teeth. It is a habit usually caused by stress or a bad bite. It usually occurs at night during sleep, but is also common during waking hours. See your dentist for an exam to diagnose the cause and a recommendation for the appropriate treatment.
