Power Napping For More Energy: A Look at Biphasic and Polyphasic Sleeping

biphasic vs Polyphasic sleeping

Most people sleep seven to eight hours a night. This “monophasic” sleep pattern is the norm for most people, but it isn’t the only way to sleep. There are also “biphasic” and even “polyphasic” sleeping schedules you may wish to investigate if you would like more time in your day for video games or for anything else.

The idea behind biphasic and polyphasic sleep is that instead of sleeping in one long block of time, you break up your sleep and take naps throughout the day. Very frequently people who use a biphasic sleep schedule (characterized by two 3 hour chunks of sleep time with a couple hours of awake time in between) or one of the many polyphasic sleep schedules (one example is the “Uberman” schedule, characterized by 30 minute naps every few hours), report that they need less sleep to get through the day than when they used as monophasic sleep schedule.
