Your Brain on Sleep: What Happens To the Mind & Body During the 5 Stages of Your Sleep Cycle [Infographic], via @HubSpot

According to my sleep study... I go into REM sleep approximately 3-5 seconds after stage 1 sleep. I rarely go into stage 4 sleep and if I do it isn't for long.

So yes I sleep too much but none of it actually helps me feel that much better.
