Uberman's Sleep Schedule
    #8794123 - 08/19/08 06:20 AM (10 years, 2 months ago)

I am about to embark on the Uberman's Sleep Schedule.
For those of you who do not know what that is, it is a very interesting sleep cycle.
The idea behind it is to take 6 20 minute naps a day, and that is all the sleep you get. You eventually trick your brain to go directly into REM sleep for those 20 minutes.

http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2002/4/15/103358/720

I have been awake since 1PM 8-18-08 and will take my first 20 minute nap at 7 AM on 8-20-08 (if everything goes according to plan, I may slip into the cycle earlier than that).

My schedule is as follows:
07:00-07:20
11:30-12:00
16:00-16:30
20:30-21:00
01:00-01:30
04:30-04:50

(Wow, I just realized half of those are 30 minutes, I have to tweak this)

Feel free to stop by and let me know that I am crazy, killing my body, destroying future generations of children, or just to offer support.

No long term effects have been studied on this, so it is very possible that that is true.
I find it fascinating and have to give it a try. Let me know if anybody is interested so I can keep you/them updated.


It is very possible that I won't be able to do this, and will be done in a matter of minutes/hours/days/weeks, but I am going to give it a shot. Hey, if I fail you guys can get a laugh in at my expense.

I want to study what will happen to my dreams (I have practiced lucid dreaming for a while, but stopped a few months back) and just give this program a shot.

Polyphasic sleep! 

I would LOVE to try this, because it seems so natural.  My dog and cats take lots of little naps all throughout the day.  They are very healthy. 

I'd like to try it but I work full time.

Thanks for the term, research is a lot easier to find now.
I guess full time jobs are a common road block in this.
Apparently Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and a few others (forgot the names) did this and it seemed to work well for them.

I guess it was discouraged, but the OP seemed pretty uninformed.
I don't want to say I am better, because I am not fully informed, but I kind of know what I am getting myself into. Sorry if I don't make any sense, I am kind of tired.

hmmm good luck man I would imagine the 1st week or 2 will be hell, though please keep us updated, should be very interesting.

I'd imagine you would need to stay clean of all drugs or else you would oversleep which could b a bummer

I think thomas eddison used this technique but I cant be sure I think he used to hold a heavy metal ball in his hand and when he went into too deep of a sleep the ball would drop and wake him up, he would take many of these mini sleeps throughout the day so he had more time to work on his inventions

I've been awake for 25 hours now (a friend with a pool helps immensely).
I almost lost it due to extreme stomach discomfort.
I was on the verge of throwing up for the better part of four hours, but I stuck it out.
The plan is to start the 20 minute cycles tomorrow morning, I could push it back to tonight or in between, I'll play it by ear.

Well, I slept for 20 minutes on accident, but it isn't the end of the world.
Besides that, I have been up for 34 hours. I think I will begin the schedule this morning around 6:45 AM or so.

I felt incredibly shitty the whole day, but I want to stick it out.

Does starting it out with sleep deprivation help your body adjust faster?

No first hand experience with that, but that is what I heard.
If you are squirming around for 20 out of your 30 minutes of your nap, you are going to be messed up for a while. I guess the sleep deprivation at the beginning helps you take the fullest advantage of every minute that you give yourself.

I have a "polyphasic" sleep schedule, its just what my body prefers. I sleep for more than 20 min though. I usually sleep for 2 or 3 hours 2 or 3  times a day.:shrug: it works for me. I thinks its all about finding your bodys preferred rhythm.

I am about to take my first nap in 15 minutes after 37.5 waking hours.
I will be using a combination of 5 alarms placed in three different locations, along with auto suggestion to wake up.

If I haven't edited my post saying it worked by 3:05 (CST), somebody come wake me up.


Edit: I woke up, it worked so far. Very tired but I got up.

I can barely stand to get out of bed once a day... I don't think I would want to do the polyphasic thing. :smile:

Yeah man, I have a hard enough time getting up at 10am... I don't normally wake up till 1-2pm :shrug: (hey it the summer and I'm a bum). However when I do get into a good sleep cycle (~6-8 hours a day) I have much more energy than I currently do.

I imagine by the end of the week this dude is going to be pretty cracked out. :crazy:

Its allot easier to wake up, when you havent been asleep for along time. After a 2 or 3 hour nap, I wake up with a rush of energy, but if I sleep for 6 to 8 hours I wake up groggy, and disoriented.

Thanks for all the support.
After the first nap I fell asleep for a couple of hours.
If I want to try again, I have to go through the sleep deprivation stage (which is hell).
I am very disappointed.
I am thinking about trying it again, but I am not sure.
