Sleep hacking!

For anyone that hasn't been on lifehack threads, I highly reccomend you get on what is called polyphasic sleeping! You were born under this habit, and you slowly grew away from it as your parents forced you into the lifestyle of sleeping at night and being awake at day.

Read up on it if you haven't, and if you have a free few weeks I HIGHLY suggest you adapt! If you are free 6 times a day, go for an uberman, which is 6 20 minute naps a day. However if you are busy relatively a lot, go for an everyman schedule which consists of one 3 hour core sleep, and 3 20 minute naps during the day for a total of 4 hours of total sleep a day.

This is the same method used by polymaths such as Nikolas Tesla, Leonardo da Vinci and Thomas Jefferson! Maximize your potential, and always remember time is a precious thing you must not waste! You can use it for soo many things, and also after a nap you are very refreshed and your mind will be very active right after, as opposed to one 8 hour sleep. The trick is, your body only really needs what is called REM sleep to re-energize. Most of your 8 hours goes to waste, and only 2 hours of it is REALLY needed (many can argue it does have psychological effects without the other 6 hours, but it won't, and you can ask the many polyphasers already on the internet for some regular questioning.)

Am I currently under this method? No, I found out about it three years ago after watching an episode of Seinfeld, when Cramer decides to sleep periodically. At the moment I've tried many times but I keep failing unfortunately, due to outside pressures from my schoolwork and home :\ I actually have adjusted and believe me, it is like NOTHING you've ever experienced. Days and nights don't exist anymore. Days are extremely long. I had to go back monophasically due to my school's schedule, however I'm currently adapting to an everyman!

So to all, I know I haven't been a part of the circle for the past few days due to my schedule but I highly suggest you manage your time, as well as your sleep! Have a nice life and enjoy! ;)
