Could You Survive With Just 2 Hours Of Sleep Daily?


Technology Journalist Mark Serrels wanted to change his sleeping plan from an average of eight hours of sleep per night to polyphasic sleep schedule. So, he wanted to go from eight hours to having 20-minutes naps every four hours. How long do you think he lasted? Well…

This small project began in July  2012 after Mark got the approval from his doctor and wife but didn’t lasted as long as he expected. The first day was a bit challenging but the hell followed the next couple of days with inability to focus and speak clearly while feeling exhausted and looking like a zombie. By day six he decided to shut the whole experiment down because it was too dangerous to continue. “It was like a little adventure, but slowly, as I descended into madness, it stopped being fun and it became a gruelling thing to do,” he said.
