  • Interesting Short TED video on Sleep

    http://www.ted.com/talks/jessa_gamble_how_to_sleep.html

    The above link talks about how light and culture affects sleep, she even mentions that a natural sleep cycle seems to have people falling asleep around 8pm until 12pm at which they awake and maintain a 2 hour, pseudo-meditative state, before falling asleep again until sunrise. She claims that people who try this type of sleep remark at actually feeling awake for the first time!

    I definitely would like to find more info about this. Any comments or ideas?

    Hi LiveWire,

    I agree it is a very interesting topic. Check out this article I posted a while ago:
    Pre-Industrial Sleep and The Watching Hour

      Or we could use the method of staying awake for 2 days at a time and getting so tired that we slip and fall down the stairs, hit our heads and remain unconscious for a full day. Either way it is 1/3 of our lives sleeping.

      I wonder why I haven't got a TED talk yet.

          As a college student, I think I may have to put this on the back burner. Even top notch ear plugs are no match when the neighbor's bass is so strong the desk is thumping. Price I pay for going to a party school. Besides which I'm not going to stop going out on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights until a graduate; my sleep schedule will have to remain less than synced because the social cost of turning in early is just too high.

          But it was interesting nonetheless, and Joe I also enjoyed your article, thanks.

            I attend UF so I know what you are talking about. I realized that there will always be an excuse to not fix my sleeping schedule, so I am trying to fix this in a manageable way. I haven't come up with a solution yet, any ideas?
