REM (rapid eye movement), it is where most of the benefit of sleep comes from. Ironically. This is the phase where dreams occur. It seems that all you really need to survive and feel rested is the REM phase, which is only a tiny portion of your actual sleep phases at night. You only spend 1-2 hours in REM sleep during any given night, and the rest is wasted on the other seemingly useless phases.
