One of the Bright Side writers decided to adjust his daily routine to leave only 2-4 hours for sleep! Do you ever think about how cool it would be if there were more hours in a day?
You would easily have time for everything: work, hobbies, friends, and family or just lazing around doing nothing at all. But enough dreaming, let’s get back to reality. The only way to make it happen is by sleeping less, but would that actually work without turning you into a tired grouch?

If your life is like one big to-do list that you just can’t seem to keep up with, then polyphasic sleep is probably for you. All jokes aside, I definitely became more productive, and I have a lot of spare time that allows me to do everything I want and even more.
On the other hand, it can be difficult since the whole world is on a completely different regimen. Your friends and family might think it’s weird when you tell them you can’t go out with them or ask them to pause a movie so you can take a nap. In any case, it’s your choice to make. Just do your homework first, and then go for it!
If this sort of dramatic change isn’t for you, don’t worry! There are still lots of things you can do to improve your productivity.
