So after realizing how much I’m screwed for my exam while studying last night, I decided to go on the Uberman sleeping cycle. This means I’ll be taking 25 mins nap every 4 hours. The greats have all done it: Thomas Edison,Leonardo Da Vinci, Christopher Columbus and so on. Can you imagine if Thomas Edison wasted a third of his day in bed, that’s soo much wasted energy for a genius mind like him.

There is no scientific evidence that this cycle works, however supposedly the 25-30 mins you take your nap, all of it goes to REM (rapid eye movement, which is what the body needs to get real rest and energized). When you sleep for your normal 8 hours, it’s a 5 step process into getting into REM. It takes around 2.5 hours to get into that 5th stage into REM and 3 hours of actual REM, and then 2.5 hours to get out. So you definitely are getting jipped 5 hours of nothing. However, over these next few days, I think I’m gonna go crazy while I try to stay awake in the wee hours of the night. I can have an extra 35 hours a week of things to do. Now doesn’t that sound like a plan?

SO WHO’S IN IT WITH ME?? (I know a few friends who have tried, none of them made it past week 2)

::EDIT::

So Uberman is raping me right now. I missed 4 naps yesterday and hardly got any sleep. And then the other night I accidently fell asleep for 3 hours. I think the past couple of days I’ve had on average around 4 hours a day and I’m doing fine. I played 2 Intramural games too and I aced my exam. Group presentation tomorrow morning, I got a massive amount of work done, things are starting to come together…
