I normally get 7-8 hours sleep every night and sometimes more... If I dont get enough sleep I become moody. If I sleep too much like 10hrs+ I get headaches.

I believe that you can train your body to sleep less instead of what they said, 7-8 hours. There was also finding that previously, people didn't really sleep 7-8 hours straight. They slept 4 hours, woke up, did some work (even visited friends at 2 or 3 am) and then went back to sleep.

I tried to sleep only 3-4 hours a day... so far I sleep around 1 or 2 am and wake up at 6 am... then in the afternoon I take a one hour nap. It kinda works for me.

I don't get why you guys want to sleep so little. Sleeping is a luxury and enjoyment. Plus... its for beauty's sake. :p...

I think normal range should be around 7-8 hours. Stick to this, it helps to prolong your life span.

I haven't read Eben's program, but as a female over 50 the hormonal change won't allow me to sleep, so I just work, and then take melatonin to stay asleep, hope this cycle doesn't stick around too long, I can tell I need more than 4 continual hours, hate waking up 3x a night, but melatonin makes it easier to fall back asleep.

I agree that a quick 20min rest mid day can make a big difference. I think it's healthy to rest a little each day to recharge the focus.

Somewhere I read that more and more people are sleeping less than six hours a night, and a huge 75% of us has sleep difficulties at least a few nights per week. A short-lived bout of insomnia is generally nothing to worry about. The bigger concern is chronic sleep loss, which can contribute to health problems such as weight gain, high blood pressure, and a decrease in the immune systemís power.
While more research is needed to explore the links between chronic sleep loss and health, itís safe to say that sleep is too important to shortchange.
I am a fan of sleep, so I try to sleep 8-9 hours everyday, and if that does not happen, I try to catch up with a daytime power nap.

That's just because your brain is going "what the actual f*** is going on here?!" If you keep going for a few days it says "you're a jerk, but I'll make this work." Then a few days after it's used to it. Then all of a sudden you're happy even on 3 hours of sleep.

I dont think it is smart to give up sleep, you can make your body custom to it, but the short term benefits won't happen until you adjust to the lifestyle.

I think you need a minimum of 5 hours to function at a reasonable capacity. Personally I would be very unpleasant to be around if I only got 3 hours of sleep!

It only takes about two weeks. That's why the benefits are called "short term". Long term benefits begin right after, although admittedly there is no scientific proof concerning what truncated sleep schedules do to the body over the long term.

It's not worth trying to be effective on 3 hours sleep... you'll just end up burning out.

I get 6 hours minimum, and with that am able to productively work 10-12 hours.

I can last from a 5 hours of sleep, but with 3 hours? I'd be cranky. i don't know, but sleeping enough is somehow important for me. We are tiring our minds, our eyes and our hands in this kind of a job so I guess having enough sleep is a must. Some say not having enough sleep will cause neurons of your brain to die. And i am not some medical students but I guess having less neurons will be a very bad thing to happen

GO. MOVE. Keep GOING! Even with the smallest steps and slower paces, the important thing is you are NOT STOPPING! You'll get there!

Jerry Weintraub (Famous for sleeping 4-5 hours a day)

Jerry Weintraub on sacrificing sleep:

ďI made a choice for career and for success. When you make that choice, you give up something - you have to give up something. I worked 24 hours a day and still do, seven days a week. I don't know about Saturday or Sunday, I don't know about holidays and vacations.

Donald Trump (Known for sleeping 3-5 hours a day)

"I sleep very little, 3 or 4 hours a night. And that's what I need. And I have friends that need 12 hours' sleep. I say, 12 hours? What are you going to do? So how does somebody that's sleeping 12 and 14 hours a day compete with somebody that's sleeping 3 or 4 ? It doesn't work that way.

Dana White (2-5 hours sleeper)

"I literally require no sleep. I can go to sleep for two hours, three hours, and I get up and can kill it.

"It's not that I don't get a lot of sleep, it's that I don't require a lot of sleep.

"My life is so good, I don't want to waste any minute of it sleeping. I hate sleeping.

Darryn Lyons (3-5 hour sleeper)

"Working like a dog during the week wore me out, so I would try and catch up on sleep at weekends.?I didnít want to let a minute go past without trying to make money. To this day, I wonít go near washing and ironing. Itís such a bad use of time.

"In this job, a typical working day is one that never ends. Iím usually awake by around 5 or 6 a.m, and most of the time I donít get to bed till 2 or 3 a.m.

"If I have to work around the clock to make something happen, then Iíll do it. People donít want to work the hours I work, and nobody works as hard as I do. They simply canít do it Ė but work is the reason we went fro Ďlittleí pictures to f***ing BIG pictures."

Damon Dash (4-6 hour sleeper)

"I think you have to give yourself goals and until you achieve them you have to work all day everyday till you get them.

"I work hard, so I surround myself with people that work just as hard. It's important if you want to create a successful brand. Also, the concept of being "tired" doesnít really apply to me. In fact, I donít even consider "tired" tired. If you want to succeed and be successful, you canít let it bother you.

"I see a lot of wasted talent, I seen a lot of people that have a lot of skills insight but because they are so smart they cut corners and because of that you see it in their work and a result of their work. Then I see people that are not that brilliant but because they work so hard they are relentless they donít get it initially but they eventually will because they are way ahead of that smarter person. I think itís about being resilient and working hard if some closes the door I open it because the doors will always be closed

"You have to walk it like you talk it. My greatest example is myself and if I can continue to work so can they, you know what I mean? Unless you got more money than me, I don't see how anybody could be relaxing. And even if they have more money they shouldn't be relaxing with it. If you don't have what I have, and I am still putting in the work, I don't see how someone else still is (relaxing).

It's an exhausting lifestyle, and I always say sleep can go. It's not important to me right now.

Aristotle Onassis (Used to sleep 4 Hours day)

ďDon't sleep too much. If you sleep 3 hours less each night for a year, you will have an extra month and a half to succeed in.

ďDon't worry about your physical shortcomings. I am no Greek god. Don't get too much sleep and don 't tell anybody your troubles.

Even losing one hour of sleep at night is enough to inhibit natural abilities to think or respond quickly. Granted it's not always the quantity of hours slept that matters as much as the quality of sleep received. It's realistic for someone who receives a well rested 4-5 hours of sleep to be more active than someone who gets a restless 6-7 hours.

As Dex mentioned however, one cannot continue to live a healthy lifestyle for long as sleep has limitless medical benefits to the human body; e.g. cardiovascular health, energy balance and infection control. We all want to be successful and make money sure, but to what extent will you push yourself to jeopardizing your own comfort and well being?

I'd get by alright on 5 hours and often do - for optimum performance though I think I definitely need 6 or 7.

I like the idea of sleeping less because I know I'd probably achieve more, I just don't think I'd function well for very long on less than 5.

I think you may be able to do it short term, but I think long term it would be very difficult to effectively function on only 3-4 hours of sleep. I think the bare minimum is around 5 hours, but most people tend to perform at the optimum level with 7-8 hours of sleep.

This is a no brainier. Medical professionals have proven long ago that you need about 8 hours of sleep every night to be healthy. Any less than that and you are setting yourself up for a whole assortment of medical problems.

This is widely known and is about as common knowledge as knowing that if you see a rattlesnake you don't try to pick it up or pet it like it's your pet cat.

Da Vinci did. But he did a lot which nobody else could nor ever will. The avg human can't survive with just 3 hrs sleep. Even those who meditate for two hours a day need around 4-5+ hrs of sleep at the bare minimum.

It's funny how people keep claiming that 3-4 hours of sleep is unhealthy but aren't posting any factual proof to back up those claims...just their opinions. I spoke w/ a buddy of mine on this subject who's a health expert on this subject. This guy, by the way, is one of those people who sleep 2-4 hours a night. I asked him would sleeping only 2-4 hours a night have a real impact on one's health. His answer to me was that if a person is eating properly thereby keeping their health in check, then sleeping only 2-4 hours a night won't hurt you. I have to agree with him because I tried it for myself. I went on a raw food diet for a month and sleeping for only a few hours was not a problem. I felt fully energized and all.

For those that don't eat healthily, you may wanna try the polyphasic sleeping program. This is where you sleep for 2-3 hours and take short naps during the day. I've tried that before and it definitely works.

For me I NEED 9 hours of sleep else I don't think, focus or get any quality work done. Plus I'm quite strict on going to the gym 7 days a week (2 days weights, 5 days cardio), I find it really helps my energy levels and getting a good night's sleep. The real difference I find is that I wake up everyday refreshed, you know that feeling when you wake up, go back to sleep and wake up feeling great - that's me everyday.

You guys saw Twilight one too many times.

Yes, living without sleep / a minimum period of sleep is very appealing.

But now really, are you taking 100% advantage of the remaining 16 hours a day?

There are two ideal sleep cycles - 5:45 hours and 7:15, at least for me. Anything under 5:45 means sleep deprivation (for me). Anything over 9 hours means waking up tired (for me).

My Three Principle System For Success
1. Work no less than 45h/week.
2. Use your downtime for training your mind.
3. Always (and first) invest in your health & fitness.

Wow! What a discussion....From few days...I am feeling that I am getting less time to do all my work....What if I would have more work to complete all my jobs.....Thats why I started to search ways of sleeping less but with full energy during waking hours.

I feel, that must be possible somehow to train my body to achieve that level where I will need only 3-4 hours of sleep every day. If I learn this technique and properly utilize my own time at fullest then I am sure that I will automatically get more out of my life. And As I am a very ambitious person...This training is going to help me to achieve my day dreams for sure.

One famous guru "Sadhguru" from Isha foundation, India was speaking to a gathering. He asked his audience that if they have a car and if that car has to be kept 15 days in the garage and next 15 days working...Will we call it as an efficient car or machine....definitely not. Do we feel that our body is a lesser efficient machine than a Car? Many of us will agree that our bodies are the best machines in the entire universal system. He even goes on to say that he know that there is some method in the Yoga by which you can achieve this efficiency of the body.
I may join his sessions in the future....But yes! I am agree that one can achieve less sleep but great energy throughout the waking hours by teaching the same to our own body.

I think it's all a matter of balance. When we have a project on and the juices are flowing and we are pumped with adrenalin we can function well for sometime with little sleep. But we need to listen to our bodies - long term we need deep restful sleep in delta to regenerate. This could be quality sleep for a short while each day as opposed to light -disturbed sleep where alpha and theta are achieved but not delta. It's more about the state than the time.
Do some form of meditation or other focus, some yoga, self hypnotherapy (to increase your efficiency of reaching delta) and you will likely find you need less sleep and are functioning beautifully when awake - probably with more clarity.

I trained myself to be need less sleep because I have a disabled child who needs rolling in the night. But when I sleep between tending to him, I can go into restful sleep quite quickly.

wishing you the best day ever

According to Margaret Thatcher, she survived on less than 4 hours.
Went to bed late and got up early. Reigned as Prime Minister for 11 years, longest serving and lived to 87. Not bad. Richard Branson does the same.
Must be some connection to successful people and only requiring minimum sleep.

It all depends on your priority in life. I started this thread coz I personally believe, it's much better to work hard and sleep less to achieve our goals..

at the same time if you see the other side of the coin - sleep is a necessity as we;'re designed to sleep 1/3rd of our life. It goes back to what you priority is ..

I need an adequate amount of sleep and if deprived, then I start to turn into a pumpkin later in the evening. I'm at my best in the morning. I enjoy meeting the day early.

I sleep minimum 5 hours at night. For me 3 hours is not good enough.

You can definitely get a lot more done if you sleep only 3 hrs a day, but the people that sleep 8 hrs would be producing higher quality work. Sleeping 3 hrs once in awhile is doable, it definitely not good for you though. Sleep is essential for recovery and repair.

it happens sometimes ..some guy died a few days after diablo 3 was released ..but he already had chronic conditions ..it was a problem in korea where kids would play without sleeping or eating for several days ..

but as brute said priorities are priorities ..if you put priority on gaining wealth..and ignore the needs of the body ..it is only good to hope to build enough wealth.. to afford to have someone take care of you when your body breaks .. surviving a heart attack can cost 50-100 thousand dollars not surviving it only requires 10k or so ..

and then being able to afford several hundred a month for medication co pays

but then i worked shift work for 8 years ..made good money but the combination of high stress and cronic sleep deprivation ripped my mind apart ..then the job after that kept my mind messed up and ripped my body up ..

i have been mentally and physically broken ..broken on every level..

now that i have regenerated much of my physical heal.. and got a grasp on my physical health and am in a far more powerful place ..though still with plenty of problems ..

I am looking for work or productive endevors that get me out of bed in the morning .

as far as sleep goes .. never sleep in get you body use to waking up at the same time so you open your eyes even if the alarm does not go off ..you mess your body up much more by sleeping in when not working ..and trying to shift back the next day .. than if you go to bed later ..wake up the same time and may need a nap ..

find when that hour is that it is best for you to wake up and stick to it ..then play with when you go to sleep .

But for every successful person who is on your list of quotes of minimal sleepers, there may be hundreds of others who sleep a "normal" amount.

Besides, it's not at all clear if it's even possible to "train" your body to need less sleep (beyond just living a healthy lifestyle). Some people just don't require as much sleep as others.

To each his own I guess, but I need at least 6 hours per night.
And sleep before 12 Midnight is twice the quality of sleep
after midnight, so it's best to get to bed before that time.

6 hours is my minimum as well. I've done days run on small naps 60 - 90 min each, but I like my solid 6 hours. It works for me so why try to mess with that?

For me, when I am working on a major project, like what I have been working on ... I do not sleep much. My husband doesn't understand how I do it. I'll generally stay up till 3am, 4am ... I've been up till the sun comes up working. And then I am ready to jump out of the bed at 8am or 9am and do it all again.

I have had many days of functioning on 3 or 4 hours a sleep.

I think when you are passionate about what you are doing, your need for as much sleep disappears. Many very successful people only get 5 or 6 or less hours of sleep.

I am not going to say it's at ALL good for your health though. So, that's the issue. Your body does need time to replenish itself. Your brain goes through all the brainwave frequencies and REM sleep and all of that is by design and if you are not getting sound, deep sleep, you are not repairing and restoring.

And also it will eventually age you.

I speak from experience and as someone who is NOT practicing getting enough sleep.

So, whether you are feeling tired or not ... you are not functioning optimally with anything less than I'd say 6 hours minimum ...

I guess I feel for me, once this big project is over, I'll make up for it ... (even though we all know that's not entirely true).

Sleeping is a habit, just like drinking water, eating right, exercising ... and one of the things that I have found works (besides hypnosis and meditation of course) is making a commitment to just go to bed a half hour earlier each night. You do have to put your health first. You can't kill yourself in the process of trying to become a millionaire. I should tell that to ME!

But realize the benefits ... realize that you think much more clearly and therefore can get more accomplished during the day...

Anyway, that's just my .02!

if you have a task to finish, you can sleep 3 to 4 hrs a day for 3 or 4 regular days, but making it a habit is not wise thing to do.
It can effect your physical and mental health too.

There would be no quality of life for me if I only managed to sleep 3 hours a day.

I would rather take serious inventory of my regular waking hours and find the time I needed in that comprehensive (honest) inventory.

The people who are famous for only sleeping 2 or 3 hours a night must have a different mental-emotional makeup that creates that kind of physiology for them to be successful with so few hours sleep.

Exactly what I was going say Dex.

My Uncle used to get 2-3 hours sleep and passed away at the age of 45. Ideally due to our hectic lifestyles, you need 7-8 hours sleep. I already get 9 hours of solid sleep and if this Internet Business works out, I plan to add another 2 hours of sleep ( siesta) during the day.

The answer is yes.... but you will definitely shorten your lifespan. I'm not sure by how much, but there have been medical studies about this.

Well, i suppose it's worth it if you live your short life with fame and fortune.

If i have an important task to finish, and the I have very less time so I can work for 4 or 5 continuous days with 3 hours sleep, means only for a reason
But I can't make it a habbit

If you want to be insulin resistant, adrenal fatigued and out of shape, go for it!

Parts of your brain start to go to sleep and offline when you think you're awake anyways. Apperantly it isn't an either/or thing.

Well, I agree! Maybe I can survive with 3 hours sleep only on the first day. On the second day, I need to sleep longer or else I won't function properly. I would say sleep is very important.
