Polyphasic Sleep

superior to the 8-16? Would one generally perform better in general once accustomed?

    Probably not. Muscle repair occurs in deep sleep which would be constantly interrupted in this pattern.

    I don't even know what to do with my regular awake hours, having even more hours would scare and confuse me

    No they looked at physical and mental performance and every measure went down.
    But I have got a diferent idea.
    Binaural beats can alter brain state (more focused, sleepy and so on).
    So what if you can extend the amount of time you spend in deep sleep?
    Will you recover faster?
    Will you perform better?
    Will you need less sleep?
    That is what I want to find out.
    So download the brainwave app and put on the deepsleep preset for the night with your earbuds and report the results.

      If Binaural was a miracle auditory experience, it would be easy to search up and get a proper setup for.
      Its just another "slight", where for some wiggers who already have okay sleep they get to gosh over the fact it componsates for their excessive coffee consumption or extremely unhealthy relationship with maintaining the circadian rhythm or lack of exercise.

      If something genuinely works, it could be applied to the harsher cases of insomnia.
      Instead if you suffer from Insomnia you have to try a mountain of bullshit to eventually deal with malnutrition, lack of sun exposure, circadian rhythm... all while still going to bed and sleeping is a complete fucking crapshot even with drugs.

          Nope.

          Nose strips works for mild apnea, but only for mild apnea.
          Sleep hygiene works if you violate all the principles in the first place, but otherwise its just rubbish.
          Melatonin works if the rest of the brain chemistry works intended for sleep, otherwise its a brick.
          >sedatives
          Nope.jpg Sedatives fundamentally don't work because they lower sleep quality long term, similar to Nicotine. Short term going to sleep is okay with them, but they destroy the sleep cycle and fatigue you.
          >zombiescrolling and red lights
          To start zombiescrolling, you need to ignore the phase where the body tells you to go to bed, until you get overtired. Then you are going to zombiescroll for 4 hours until the body remembers that it wants sleep.
          Exercise increase your need for sleep, which for most people push them over the threshold where goin to bed at a reasonable and repeatable time is no longer a option, and therefore increase sleep quality.

          You might be saying there is something logically invalid, but if there was a miracle cure, it would be universally used because it would fundamentally be without caveat.
          Everything listed isn't a miracle cure and won't even dent insomnia. But if you sleep okay in the first place, you just need a trigger to sing jesus praises of halleluja praise the Binaural

    I sleep for around ~3 hours immediately after work, then I'm awake for 6-7, then back to sleep for another 5-6.

    It has helped immensely with my fatigue. I'm no longer dead tired after work & can lift + enjoy my hobbies more.

        beyond the memes, humans should take a siesta

          siesta makes you tired. however, we aren't supposed to sleep 8 hours

          op image is bonkers because humanity's correct sleep pattern is known from old literature and is being verified experimentally

          you're supposed to sleep 5-6 hours, get up for 1-2, and then sleep 1-2 more. sleep right side first, then left side to aid digestion

            I used to do this and hated it, 1 hour isn’t enough time to do anything productive or get in the state of flow so I just end up reading. Also back sleeping is the ultimate way to sleep

    naps are for people in diapers (young and old)

    I did it for a while, would come home from work and pass out from 6pm-9pm, wake from 9- 3 or 4 AM, sleep 3-4 more hours then back to work.
    I experienced no negative side effects but if you miss a window it could mess up your rhythm.
    I think the most interesting thing was I'd feel fully awake right up until 6 then it was like instant sleepy time. didn't even need alarms my body was tuned in to the sleep cycles or whatever. Waking up felt the best in my life but it made weekday social obligations besides late night drinking difficult and it was hard to maintain on the weekend.

    This is how people sleep in wars. Up all hours, nap when you can. It's miserable.

    Polyphasic sleep is a meme. A small minority of people don’t feel physically exhausted when they get less sleep than normal, but they still accrue the costs of lack of sleep. An even smaller minority MIGHT need less sleep than the normal 8 to 9 hours. It’s the people who dont feel how bad it is that are doing it. Eventually they crash and burn. Even the Reddit and Discord are full of people who are on "monophasic recovery", or can only manage 7 hours at night with a nap in the day.

    The military, sleep scientists, and even yacht racers, who all have a vested interest in proving the supposed merits of polyphasic sleep, all agree that monophasic is best, and that an afternoon nap can be helpful if you are sleepy. The most outlandish thing they have been able to prove is that biphasic MIGHT be as good as monophasic, but they still aren’t sure. All sleep debt must be paid. Ignore the discord trannies and get your fourty winks anon, sleep is life.

    OP, I have played with my sleep patterns for over 20 years and I can tell you to be careful because learned patterns are hard to undo.

    First, observe your sleep, figure out exactly how long your sleep cycles are. The important thing is to make sure you wake up in hetween sleep cycles. You will be just as rested as long as you get the same number of uninterrupted sleep cycles, it doesn't matter when you sleep.

        It will be close to 90 min. You can get a sleep tracker or estimate how long it takes you to fall asleep and measure how long you sleep without an alarm.

        eg if you go to bed a midnight every night and wake up at 8 without an alarm. If you estimate the time it takes to fall asleep as 30 min then you slept 5 sleep cycles in 7.5 hours or 90 min per cycle. If it took you 10 minutes to fall asleep then the sleep cycles were 94 minutes long.

    I tried tri(?)phasic for a while a few years ago, I think something like 4-5hr + 30min + 30min. still felt like shit all the time after 6 weeks so I stopped

      This is rhe classic example of why polyphasic sleep doesn't work for a lot of people. Take the example where you sleep a solid 8 hours and get 5 uninterrupted sleep cycles. If you try to replace that with 5hr +30min +30 min you only get three uninterrupted sleep cycles and if it was 4hrs +30min +30min you only get two uninterrupted sleep cycles.

      What works well for me is 4.75hrs + 3.25hrs because that gives 3+2 sleep cycles and enough time to fall asleep, ymmv because my sleep cycles are under 90 min (about 85).
