Its stunning to see that less sleep don’t make you incapable of thinking (like they suggest, no sleep slower thinking bla bla…).
Anyhow I started of easy, Instead of one long 8 hour sleep I put my schedlue to one 6 hour sleep and one nap on 30 minutes. It worked great. Didn’t feel tierd.
Then I stepped it up to one two hour sleep and one nap on 30 min. Bad idea, it worked two days then I didn’t wake up by the bell and ended up sleeping 14 hours.
Now however Im sleeping 5 hours + taking one (sometimes two) short naps. The number of naps are decided on how I feel. still I save 2 or 2,5 hours a day compared to previously. That I can use for other things than sleeping.
Have I gone insane? how much do you sleep? Feel free to add your opinion about this. Also don’t try this unless a doctor tells you its okay… = O
Average about 5 hrs. Always wake up about the same time regardless of the time I go to bed. Sometimes I think an afternoon nap would be good if bubby would let me, but I struggle to get to sleep during daylight. Rubys afternoon naps a almost non-existent now. Being a home dad, my 2yr old does dictate sleep patterns a bit. Kind regards.
If you guys want to have a good nice peaceful sleep have scotch whisky on the rock :-TU an hour before bed, because it does give you the best relaxation during you’re sleep throughout night and when you do wait up in morning you’ll feel like a new person really fresh in the morning.
I get 5 or 6 hours generally, but not by choice, sometimes I get 4 hours sleep depends how my boss drives me nuts throughout day at work unless I had my baseball bat with me >:-D
Many health problems in long run if you don’t get 7+ hours of sleep. Well genetics may provide the few tolerance for less sleep, and while other good health habits might offset one bad one, the health statistics make less than 7 a bad bet.
The napping thing may allow some leeway, too, but while you defeated the need for sleep, it may be that your spelling and health may both be hurt…
As one of the Russian sayings states : “You are right as my right testicle and even righter”
Those do not help even if you add earplugs to that (usually 2 … I du’know… two???)
The napping could be very healthy … when you are an oriental descent & know what it’s all about. In this case ~20 min of deep sleep can compensate a lot,
… but that cannot possibly apply to us “western people” - we are hopeless re: the matter
Huge mistake ! rather two if not more
1) You do not drink before going to bed expecting having a rest… you will basically suffer;
2) “whiskey on the rock” :o or any other drink with added ice or bloody water is an invention of a complete idiots & that is pure waste of product(s) !ot! , but true;
3) You may have pure (no bloody freaking rocks) whiskey or vodka (the latter is much preferable!) before going to bed … When & If you have a cold (not a flue - important!).
One full glass plus you add pepper (better hot read chilly) to that in case you have a sore throat.
A full glass of that mixture & scarf (pure wool one) and you will have few hours of decent sleep & basically no symptoms the next morning
Other that that … as far as I know, there were just quite a few well known geniuses, who maintained the lifestyle of sleeping much less then 8 (needed) hours
and lived quite a long and productive life … Sure you can & will find out a lot about them including the facts that they were (are?) indeed extremely weird concerning many aspects, but who cares?
Again as 00hmh pointed - “genetics may provide”. True! & go figure how & where to obtain that genetic 88) material … don’t even start with suggestions - that’s for another thread
The message for those who are not geniuses or oriental people deeply involved into their philosophy - try to have ~ 8 hours of decent sleep.
Nothing else you can do my western/pragmatic[al] friends - we are basically doomed!
Speaking of "right" in terms of a side/coordinates the right testicle is
But why the right testicle? Why not the right ear, as it’s probably further to the right than the right testicle? Plus, both males and females (should) have a right ear, something which cannot be said for the right testicle.
