4 Alternative Sleeping Cycles That You Didn't Know About


4 Alternative Sleeping Cycles That You Didn't Know About #Best infographic #infographic s  #Health

If you're like me, you've found yourself up at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday night. You've been tossing and turning for hours, but your eyes simply won't close. I've been there, my friend. We all have In fact, it is believed that about 60 million Americans suffer from sleep issues. That's why I decided to take matters into my own hands and investigate what other sleep patterns are available: ones that don't require the bulk of the population to spend their nights looking at the ceiling! I've identified a couple possibilities with differing degrees of flexibility and structure, so let's get started:

The Ordinary Person:

The Everyman is a different sleep schedule that was created to increase your sleep quality and make up for missed sleep. It's a sleeping cycle divided into two parts: a 90-minute nap in the early afternoon to keep you active throughout the day; and an 8-hour block of nocturnal sleep from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning.


If you are an architect seeking a more effective sleep pattern, Dymaxion may be the solution for you. Buckminster Fuller invented this 20-hour sleep cycle, which is a hybrid of the Uberman and Biphasic cycles. The Dymaxion cycle has four phases: Phase 1—two hours of deep sleep in which you reach REM (rapid eye movement) and non-REM stages II and III respectively; Phase 2—four hours in which your body alternates between light stages N1/N2 and N3/N2 respectively; and Phase 3—another two hours of deep sleep in which you reach REM again. With this length of time spent in REM, you're more likely to remember your dreams than in typical cycles when phase 3 is shorter (the average phase 3 lasts roughly 45 minutes if you're on a monophasic schedule). These dreams will be extremely vivid since they occur during non-REM phases II or III, when your brain waves are coordinated with those experienced when dreaming. This implies that any ideas or problems from the day will come back to bother or inspire you when you sleep!


A biphasic sleep pattern is a sleep cycle that is divided into two phases. The first phase is a substantial period of sleep (at least four hours), followed by a nap (20–60 minutes) or brief night sleep. The most prevalent variation of this cycle entails having two naps during the day instead of one. The theory behind biphasic sleeping is that we should experience an extensive period of REM dreaming at night, which takes up around two-thirds of our total sleep duration, followed by a shorter period of REM during our afternoon nap. This would allow us to complete more tasks with less stress and physical tiredness from the increased waking time spent in bed each day that monophasic sleepers require to accommodate their longer nocturnal periods where they do not dream at all.

Uber man:

Here's a guide to making the most of your sleep. It's made up of 20 minutes of sleep and 20 minutes of rest. You can continue this for up to three days before returning to your usual sleeping routine. This cycle is best used when you are unwell or need a surge of energy after being awake for a lengthy amount of time (like if your flight gets delayed). It is critical that you do not focus on anything that demands attention during these naps, since you will struggle to remain awake afterwards!  

I'll leave you to it now. But, as a final note, I'd want to point out that this is an ongoing dispute in the scientific community. There has been research that suggests some benefits of polyphasic sleep as well as others that shows it is harmful. Some physicians and academics swear by polyphasic sleep, while others say it's not worth a shot. Anecdotal evidence exists both for and against polyphasic sleep; while it may work well for some people, the same findings may not always hold true for everyone. As with any lifestyle change or medical decision, conduct your own research and choose the one that works best for you—and don't be hesitant to discuss your findings with your doctor! Don't allow anybody to tell you what will or will not work for your body or brain; just because it hasn't worked for them doesn't mean it can't work for you!
