Polyphasic Sleep A couple days ago, I saw a post about polyphasic sleep on Since then I’ve been emailed about this topic as well, probably because I’ve written previously about becoming an early riser. Polyphasic sleep involves taking multiple short sleep periods throughout the day instead of getting all your sleep in one long chunk. A popular form of polyphasic sleep, the Uberman sleep schedule, suggests that you sleep 20-30 minutes six times per day, with equally spaced naps every 4 hours around the clock. Under this sleep schedule, your sleep times might be at 2am, 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, and 10pm. How can this sleep schedule work? It requires some discipline to successfully transition to this cycle, as well as a flexible schedule that allows it. It was interesting to read some of the posts from people who’ve tried this sleep cycle. The downside to this sleep schedule is that it can be inflexible. Plus it’s just plain weird.

Polyphasic Sleep Long-Term Consequences One long-term consequence of the polyphasic sleep experiments I did in 2005-2006 is that I still retain the ability to fall asleep very quickly. Enough time has passed that I suspect this is a permanent change. These days when I decide to go to sleep, I can typically fall asleep within 30 seconds or less. Sometimes I can be asleep within just 2-3 seconds. This isn’t narcolepsy. This is true for falling asleep at night as well as for taking naps if I so desire. On many occasions I’ve been startled awake while Rachelle and I were lying in bed together. This sometimes happens 2-3 times in a row. When this happens a few times in a row, sometimes I’ll re-enter the same dream and continue where I left off, but usually I’ll enter a different dream that doesn’t seem related to the first dream. There’s a bit of time dilation when I’m dreaming, so I may feel that several minutes have passed in the dream world, while Rachelle tells me that only seconds passed within her waking time frame.
