this usually happens to me if I wake up early for work and didn't get enough sleep, I'll get hope and just crash on the bed, and wake up about four hours later.

Actually, I read that it's a pretty healthy method. Sleep 4 hours or so, stay awake for an hour while doing something else, then sleep 4 more.

I wish I could get away with that. I end up sleeping away half my day if I don't have anything important to do.

which is never.

I've been sleeping in two 4-hour chunks every day for the last 5 years. My heart feels different. And mental well-being.

used to only happen to me on my days off when i could get like 12+ hours of sleep (fuck jer), but lately (past year or two) it happens even if i get to the point of 3 hours of sleep every 2 days.

yeah i heard it's referred to as polyphasic sleep, didn't know it could be beneficial though.

Holy crap, I didn't know it had a name. I can finally explain to my friends why I nap 3 hours a day.

During the Summer(just started) I go to sleep at around 5-7AM, and wake up at 11AM. On Sundays I sleep all day and go to sleep early for rejuvenation.

It's a moderately well known fact that doing so, does in fact make you a boss.

That's the way our brains are wired to work. This whole '8 hour interrupted sleep' thing is only a very recent idea.

There is no problem with it, if you feel good with this sleeping behaviour, then there is certainly no need to change that.

I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. It would probably suck for a little while, but once you get past all the bullshit I don't see it as a full disadvantage. I guess it's similar to getting the amount of sleep required per day.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.
