I have realised that the only way I can finish all the work I have and then also have time for my hobbies now is to cut down on my sleep.
As of today I am testing polyphasic sleep. Polyphasic sleep is essentially sleeping multiple times during the day in defined intervals as to get just the REM stage of the sleep (which is the most important part of the human sleep)
The extreme polyphasic sleep is where you train your body to sleep 20 minutes every 4 hours during the day (getting roughly 2 hours of sleep per day) and saving 6 hours of sleep. Your body over time trains to go into REM straight away and get the required rest for the body.
I am not sold on that so I am cutting it down slowly. I am starting at 4.5 hours of sleep during night and 2-3 20 min sleep during the day. If that works out, I might go to 3 hours of main sleep and 3-4 20 minute sleep during the day.
I will update this blog weekly with updates.
Update: I was not disciplined enough to run with Polyphasic for a while and gave up after a while, however few months ago I did biphasic for a couple of months and that was really productive, will update around August on how I ran with that.
