Is setting your alarm for a long duration at a lower volume a good way to ensure you wake up in light sleep?
I usually set my alarm really loud so that I will definitely wake up. Usually that is accompanied by disorientation, headaches, etc. However, I read about ‘completing the sleep cycle’ and that it allows for more fulfilling sleep, along with easier waking up, so I started finding ways to implement that.
One way that occurred to me: what if I set my alarm to ‘endless mode’ but lower the volume to around 30%? I read that it is very difficult to wake a person in deep sleep, but it becomes easier in light sleep. In this way, when I am in deep sleep I won’t wake up, but when I transition into light sleep, then the lower volume will be enough to wake me up.
Is this a good technique?
