People vary greatly in their need for sleep. There is a popular idea that we need 7-8 hrs sleep. This is not true as many studies show that people's ideal sleep ranges between 5-10 hours per night.
Sleep has different stages,varying from light to deep sleep. It is believed there are 5 different stages. Broadly sleep is divided into what is called REM (rapid eye movement ) and non-REM sleep. REM sleep occurs several times during the night and is when most dreaming is thought to take place. Non REM sleep is divided into 4 stages,each stage being a bit deeper,almost like a stair case of sleep.During the night whilst asleep,people go up and down this staircase many times and in fact wake up several times
