Sleep schedules

  1. Mar 9, 2013 #1
    Just wondering what everyone's sleep schedule is like. I know I usually go to bed around 1030, but recently it's been later than that. Then I have to wake up at 6, so recently I've only been getting like 6.5 hours of sleep. I know it's recommended to get 8, but is it really worth it? Also, anyone on a polyphasic sleep schedule?

    Also, I'd be wary of polyphasic sleep schedules as few studies have been done on them. You don't need to get 8 hours exactly. You just need to train your body by always sleeping and waking up at the same exact times. That way, your body can reliably undergo all sleep stages consistently.
