I had early work shift this week. I needed to be 5:45am already at work. My commute time from home to the customer site is around 37 minutes. For three days in a row I woke up at 3:30am and left home at around 4:35am. Back from work I take a power nap of exactly 20mn.
I had some drowsiness between 6:30am and 7:15am. Other than that, I was feeling better than on regular days where I sleep between 6,5 and 7 hours.
These three days have shown me that a certain lack of sleep is indeed beneficial to my body. I could managed it with less than 6 hours of total sleep time per day. On the days where I exceed the 7 hour sleep mark, I usually hit the snooze button and wake up drowsy.
Too much sleep is not healthy and it won’t leave you enough time and energy to work on your daily goals.
