    Default Short sleep syndrome

    Defined as <6 hours of sleep but fully functional with energy. Came across this researching as the past month Iíve only hit 6 hours a handful of times but otherwise the average is around 4 hours. Itís weird but Iím keeping an eye on it. I expected insomnia from weed withdrawal and I did go through that misery the first 2-3 weeks but this doesnít feel like that now. It simply feels like the norm now. Fully functional with energy on 4 hours sleep. I really need sports and weights back so I can do more self experimenting lol

    Anyone else?

    Up to age 36 I always needed 8 hours +

    When I started having troubles sleeping that’s when I started getting high to pass out. Still slept 8 hours but it wasn’t the restful deep sleep and no dreaming.

    I dream again now and lucid ones can be quite intense. Just never thought I would be capable of operating on 4 hours or perhaps that’s an age thing or my brain really got scrambled from being high for 3 years lol

    Don't know the full truth of course but you see all these celebs like Gordon Ramsay, The Rock, Arnold, etc. all talk about how they sleep so little everyday (3-5 hrs).

    I find if I am invested and motivated on something, I don't need much sleep either. Kind of like the night before going to Disneyland syndrome, but every single day. Maybe it is something you train yourself mentally. How do single moms do it?

    Only problem I could see is severe premature aging.

    A humble flex.

    Max...you should look into those alternative sleep patterns where you take multiple shorter naps throughout the day to recharge.

    Pretty interesting video regarding this on Joe Rogan. Studies show more and more that marijuana products dont help. Although they can get you to sleep, does not get you into the restorative REM sleep.

    Unable to nap. I try to meditate for 30mins in the early afternoon sometimes but I just get annoyed.

    Just trying to get myself back to the pre weed days. Would love to hit 7-9hours on the regular again.

    Great video @OTown

    This is me 100%. Wofe is telling me that im snoring alot these days too, maybe sleep apnea. How much water do you drink @max_boost ?

    I never used to drink water, like almost never, very unhealthy, I know. Then I started drinking a minimum of about 4 or 5 cups a day and I noticed my sleeping patterns change drastically.

    However, ive laxed while being laid off(again) and im sleeping like shit again. As I get older I start noticing these patterns, water is where its at, at least for me.

    Yeah I am finding the last 5 years or so I have been getting/needing less and less sleep. Some nights I am lucky to get 3 or 4 hours. I am not exhausted all day either. Just don't seem to be able to get to sleep and stay there. Sometimes I will wake up a couple/few hours after going to bed, just lay there tossing and turning for hours and then finally fall back asleep for another hour or two in the morning. Kind of annoying actually.

    Having been on sleeping pills for 20 years I fall into this category. They don't work anymore and I usually only get 4hrs sleep. I find it affects my memory more than anything. Getting off the pills..

    That’s crazy Cory. Jesus man.

    Was it Zopiclone? Doctors don’t even prescribe it anymore. I was on it for a couple weeks for vacation and it definitely did more harm than good.

    Was so tired last night passed out at 10 and woke up at 4. Finally hit that 6 hours lol feel like a fkn senior with those hours haha

    I usually don't have a problem falling asleep, but staying asleep seems to be a major issue. On average, I wake up about 3 or 4 times a night. I was referred to a sleep clinic at one point, but ultimately there was nothing they could really do as it didn't really affect my energy levels or my focus during the day. Ultimately, the doctor suggested that I maybe wasn't going to bed tired enough, so he told me to try going to bed a little later, which has helped some.

    Breathing problems is usually what causes sleep issues. Properly draining sinuses before sleeping and training your body to induce it after waking up (if needed) can help. Of course if you have dry sinuses, don't do this. Get some Therabreath lozenges instead.

    Totally underestimated in North American wellness. Everyone goes out for a jog and to the gym, but noone took a class on how to breathe.

    You guys are gonna get degenerative brain diseases most likely from lack of sleep. Unless you are actually the .00001% of people who genetically can sleep short amounts of time with no ill effects.

    Either way sleeping under 6 hours is something to be very concerned about.
