Default My new sleep schedule, implementing today

I just thought of this new sleep schedule and I'm pretty damn excited. Here's how it goes:

3AM wake up / six hours
9AM sleep / two hours
11AM wake up / six hours
5PM sleep / two hours
7PM wake up / six hours
1AM sleep / two hours

This will give me six hours of sleep everyday. The plan is to be very active during my hours awake so I can fall asleep quickly. I think this will increase my productivity a crapload. Thoughts? I will update this thread with results.

you will not get enough deep sleep, which is the part that you need the most. So when you're awake you'll still be tired and wont be able to do as much that you want. You'll become grumpy too.

Just be human, and take those 7-8 hours a night.

I figure this will be true during the first few days. But as my body adjusts I should start dreaming during every 2 hour session. It worked for Da Vinci and he only slept 20 minutes at a time.

Yeah right. Good luck on that one. This is just like what Kramer tried to do and we all know what happened there.



Actually, I'd be quite interested to know if this works for more than a week. Keep us posted.

the initial adjustment period is very hard, and it's tough on outside responsibilities. you can do some research online, try google searches for these terms:

uberman's sleep schedule

polyphasic sleep

Yes I've read up on these a lot. I'm not trying to sleep a lot less (Uberman is something like 2 hrs or less everyday) but rather spend my time more efficiently.

oh, ok. a year or two ago i fell into a similar schedule by accident: a 3.5-4 hour sleep in the early morning and a 3.5-4 hour sleep in the afternoon. i didn't plan on it, it just happened. i kept it up for a semester and i liked it.

When I was in high school I typically slept from 3-6 am and from 4-7 pm. I hated it. I was exhausted all day at school. At lunch period I would eat really fast then go to the library and try to sleep.

I hope this works out for you but I know for sure I would never, ever be able to keep this sleep schedule.

this sounds similar to my weekend sleep schedule which consists of roughly 6 hour periods of conscienceness followed by roughly 5 hours sleep periods. However most of my awake periods consist of heavy drinking from the moment I wake up followed by passing out later.
