I'm a seriously heavy sleeper who goes through their alarm clock all the way through. Been trying to wake up at 3:00 AM to do something early in my day. However I go to sleep around 12:00 Am, so it's hard for my body to wake up. Can anyone help me out on this.
Three hours of sleep is too little when you only have one sleep phase a day (maybe polyphasic sleep would interest you).
If you want to get up early, go to bed early and have seven - eight hours of good (!) uninterrupted sleep. Keep a strict schedule for at least a month where you wake up / go to sleep every day at the same time (even on weekends).
I do understand the implications of not sleeping for as long as my body needs. Still I prefer using my time as best as possible, and I fight off the low energy and weight gain by doing some exercise and eating a proper diet.
Shifting my pineal clock can help me, however it'll still require me to sleep the full time span my body wants (or at least extend my sleep schedule). But I know it works, so I'll try it if all else fails.
Thanks I'll check this app out and hope it works.
Currently No, Used to be able to do this regularly. Then I stopped this sleep schedule when I got too busy with something, now I'm trying to get back on it, but it's a bit difficult to start it up.
You don't get it...
Humans aren't made for long term sleep deprivation. That's why we have a biological circadian sleep rythm, to keep our hormones, brain chemistry and psyche intact.
I mentioned polyphasic sleep (like the uberman or everyman rythm). Those are ways to reduce the total amount of needed sleep down to two hours. But even they aren't fully researched...
