Step 1: Pick a schedule Pick one of two polyphasic schedules: Uberman Sleep, where you take 20 to 30 minute naps every four hours, or Dymaxion Sleep, where you snooze for 30 minutes every six hours. Step 2: Start your new schedule Start your new sleep schedule. Expect to suffer through sleep deprivation for the first two weeks, as your body adjusts to shorter sleep cycles. Tip Don't deviate! You are training your body to fall instantly into the all-important REM sleep that makes us feel rested. Missing even one nap—or oversleeping—will throw everything off. Step 3: Eat more Enjoy more food! One bonus of the diet is you'll need to consume more calories because your body will be active several more hours each day. Tip Expect to experience vivid dreams once you adjust to your new sleep pattern. Step 4: Feel smug Feel superior to all those slugs wasting 8 hours a night on sleep. Did You Know? Benjamin Franklin and Leonardo Da Vinci were believed to have been polyphasic sleepers.
