I Decided to Sleep for 4 Hours a Day, See What Happened

One of the Bright Side writers decided to adjust his daily routine to leave only 2-4 hours for sleep! Do you ever think about how cool it would be if there were more hours in a day?

You would easily have time for everything: work, hobbies, friends, and family or just lazing around doing nothing at all. But enough dreaming, let’s get back to reality. The only way to make it happen is by sleeping less, but would that actually work without turning you into a tired grouch?

My thoughts after the experiment 9:48

If your life is like one big to-do list that you just can’t seem to keep up with, then polyphasic sleep is probably for you. All jokes aside, I definitely became more productive, and I have a lot of spare time that allows me to do everything I want and even more.
On the other hand, it can be difficult since the whole world is on a completely different regimen. Your friends and family might think it’s weird when you tell them you can’t go out with them or ask them to pause a movie so you can take a nap. In any case, it’s your choice to make. Just do your homework first, and then go for it!
If this sort of dramatic change isn’t for you, don’t worry! There are still lots of things you can do to improve your productivity.

  1. Dude don't lie and stop making people fool for your views ….it you really going to gym then you atleast need 6 hrs of sleep…and without sleeping you can't even focus on studies for 2 hrs continuously…
    Note: may be you are telling the truth but not everything is truth 😉

  2. Winston Churchill

    Like the average workaholic today, Churchill got a substantial amount of sleep. He slept for 5-6 hours during the night and took several power naps in the day. His naps range from 1.5-2 hours for a total of 8 hours, so that's a lot of sleep!

  3. I am also used to sleep less during my +2 . More time does not mean more productivety. When our brain actually relaxes we could be productive. Iam completely so regretful of cutting my bedtime even now.
