"But I Love My Sleep!"

Alright, rocketeers... this post is on a subject that's near and dear to my heart.

Whenever people hear about the polyphasic sleep schedule, they come up with reasons they couldn't do it. I don't know why... It's really awesome and everyone should want to do it. By far the most common excuse is :

"But I love my sleep. I would never want to give it up."

Everyone will tell you that sleep is important. But no one "really" knows why we sleep, there are many theories of course.

Sleep is a topic that I've been interested in for quite some time now. I've even tried experimenting with my sleep, until a few weeks ago.

I've tried the Everyman polyphasic sleep schedule in 11th grade. The Everyman schedule is split into a block of core sleep, usually 3 hours and 3 power naps throughout the day, which totals to 4 hours of daily sleep. I failed miserably because I simply couldn't hack the sleep deprivation and how it made me feel. It felt as if I was a vegetable moving through the world. So I went back to mono-phasic sleep.

A year later, I decided to try it again, same story, couldn't handle the sleep deprivation.
