  • This sleeping method has not just stopped me from acquiring numerous medicinal drugs but additionally helped me attain a superb night rest right after Three months of nightly insomnia attack. During that period, I can just rest Three to four hours every evening. When I started using the plan, I had been able to accomplish 7 straight hours of sleep. After 1 year of working with it, my own sleep became much better and longer than I have achieved in many years.. Good luck, you will get the results, find it on Google. The name is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • I feel this study is a little unfair simply for the fact that the study didn’t include people more and likely didn’t include people that actually work a graveyard shift because it’s scientifically proven that people that work the graveyard shift their brain function Works different than someone that’s up during the day

  • But what if my sleeping pattern is just different? I usually stay up until 8 am or even 10 but most of the time I get 8 hours of sleep… does this count?

  • There are tricks to drive safely when sleep: play loud music, open the car window to freeze yourself in winter, and sing to the music. It works. I’m a master at doing this.

  • If this is true then how does it explain Einstein and Tesla sleeping for less than 4 hours a day every day in their lives and still being the best scientists ever? They had pretty good concentration and fast mind for the work they did, really need an explanation.

  • This is nothing. I don’t get enough sleep due to late working and then child wakes me up in night. My immune system has gone havocc. I’m I’ll every week. Looking for a day job

  • I’m not sure how it works in other countries, but in the UK, the government has been running a fairly aggressive campaign against driving whilst tired for years now. You get thought not to do it during driver training, and you see signs saying: “Tiredness can kill. Take a break” along the sides of roads.

  • I was just telling my friend this the other day at work. The mythbusters have also compared sleep-deprived driving and drunk driving.

  • Greetings, fellow nerds! I’m a girl scout and I’m starting up a new YT channel about sleep for my Gold Award. Here’s a link to my first video. Feel free to check it out: ​

  • Given that I began adulthood, I couldn`t get enough sleeping hours. This sleeping program has demonstrated me good results even on my very first Seven days of usage.

It reveals various explanations and also a cure for diverse instances of sleeping disorders. It has plenty of procedures or options for you to select. I researched Google and found this guidebook on a website.. The name is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • In the past, before I learned about strengthening my immune system with daily vitamin D, I used to get sick when sleep-deprived, but now I just feel the effects of sleep-deprivation w/o getting sick, so it feels very much like being a zombie.

  • Honking car locking wakes people up and creates Noise Stress Everywhere. We can hear it in our houses and apartments when you park on the street right up next to them. Please Break the Honk Habit! Please lock you car with light flash only. The Auto Industry needs to find a way to let people know their cars are locked and armed With out Honking.Thank you.

  • the one thing I don’t miss about college, well that and the PC justice warriors. Always slowing down lectures and triggering facepalms throughout the room n shit

  • I never got to sleep at a decent hour when I was in school. My teachers always assigned way too much homework so I was up all night trying to finish. Fortunately I never needed to study for tests. I actually tested much better if when I didn’t study.

  • Teacher: watches video

    Teacher: “You guys have to get sleep! Sleep deprivation isn’t healthy!”

    Also teacher: assigns 20 page book assignment and an essay due by next morning

  • Your mustache is better than your beard. My beard is better than my mustache. Your mustache is better than my mustache, my beard is better than your beard.

  • I’ve stayed awake for 6 to 8 days straight 144 192ish hours and experienced no detremental effects that reduced ability to perform.
    The only way for me to know if i’m tired is sore and dry eyes, but that can caused by lack of blinking when focusing on moving objects. This effect passes after the first 24 hours and I feel completely refreshed again, then the cycle repeats ever 12 hours.
    Although on average days, if I sleep in, I experience drowsiness and lack of motivation, which can keep me in bed for extended periods of time.
    Side note, I am currently on a 35 hour streak, (give or take a few hours) 
    My grades don’t suffer, in fact i’m in the top classes at college with a consistent grade of A with some Bs.
    I don’t recommend doing what I do since i’ve noted that sleep deprivation affects me differently, my friends can’t seem to stay awake for 24 hours; I assume their results would be the same as most people reading this.

  • due to going to school I get a grand 3-4 hours of sleep every night, and my eyes always hurt 24/7. and my parents ask me why I hardly ever have any energy..

  • so why is it that when I’m trying to write/type/draw when I’m sleepy i start to write/type/draw all of my thoughts instead of what i intended to

  • How are we going to determine if we have sufficient sleep? up to how many hours? does it matter if the person can only sleep at morning (lets say 5am to 2pm)?

  • “You can find out how sleepy you are by doing the test on” I fell asleep before I could finish. I guess i’ll never know:'(
