Is Math The Key To A Good Night’s Sleep?

By Sean Lee, WWJ Health Reporter

Could a math equation be the key to a good night’s sleep? Some British researchers think so.

University of Manchester researchers say they’ve got a formula that not only quantifies what kind of sleep you’re getting now, but gives you the tools to get better sleep.

The equation uses numbers for several factors including tiredness, bedtime and mattress comfort, then scores your sleep quality from “great” to “tossing and turning all night.”

A score of two is a great night’s sleep; zero is the worst.

The researchers hope the equation will help people figure out what they need to do get to sleep quicker, and to stay asleep for longer.
