How to sleep less but not feel sleepless

What type of Alarm are you speaking of? I've never heard of an Alarm that mimics the rising sun. Where did you find it? Or do you mean a sound alarm that starts quietly and increases in volume? Very interested.

I think it is important to note that no amount of tricks will actually make up for a proper night's sleep, especially for people who have a strenuous day (labor, working out ,etc) The body needs to amount of time it needs to recover and rebuild, and tricks and gimmicks don't change this
Water trueDaylight and Sun trueNaturaly come to strach yourself and soI take 30 min. nap:D glad to hear that someone else discover, I wasn't sure is good but hey ;) - PeđaJ
Good instructable, very informative. Your spelling is atrocious though. - Solidsnayke
I have a different way of looking at sleep due to a medical condition. I have bipolar disorder (also called manic depression). I have found that an approximate 7.5 hours of sleep and waking up to a gentle alarm that mimics the rising sun (kind of like a Sun lamp but gradual and mimicking the sunrise, especially in winter months) wakes me up at the ideal time in my sleep cycle and I am ready to face the day! I recommend this to anyone with a circadian rhythm disorder, it's very helpful. I also agree with the advice above. Everyone is different but with a little bit of trial and error (and maybe the occasional melatonin) you can find what works best for you. - Hazel19
I have an easier instruction - find good vitamins - that will allow you to sleep 5-6 hours without any of the other effort :) I've found that certain brands work for my organism very noticably while they don't do the same on other people and vice versa. And yes - waking up just after your dream ends makes it much easier.
Sounds like u got the right idea. But I prefer to sleep rather than have those extra hours. My dreams are really awesome and just as great as my waking life most of the time. Sometimes, it's even better!...lol - Sallybinzwigs
As someone who normally sleeps 4-6 hours a night, I generally do about everything Malka1 has posted. I always wake after 4 hours. All that water ensures it. This is when I decide to stay up or catch a couple more hours. - AntiTek
How on earth do you remember/find the time? I try hard to make myself drink and a litre bottle of water would last me at least two days. - indiananana
I'm obvious backwards... I've had a coffee for before bed since I was a kid and it helps me sleep. If I get more than 5 or 6 hours sleep in one night, the next night I almost always sleep less. If I want to sleep more, I have to use tablets with codeine in them, which is legal in Australia.On the subject of drinking water, what I do know (in my experience) is that if I drink a glass of water every hour or so, I don't feel any different... but AFTER I stop drinking the water, I realise how much better I felt when I was drinking lots of water, if that makes sense? I just hate having to pee so much, it's especially bad in winter.... - joshiii92
15 minute naps are not a sufficient substitute for two hours of deep sleep - HarrietR2
I can't go without sunglasses during the summer in Florida. Would burn my eyes out. My eye doctor strongly recommends sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV light. - BarbK2
use sleepyti.me to calculate your cycle. It divides your time of sleep into 90 minutes, and sometimes you'll see it's easier to get up earlier but at the end of a cycle, than later but in the middle of a cycle. :) - AndiA5
I see that you are a good obedient American drinking your scientific american journals recommended ammount of water per day. I suppose you reckon you are going to live longer because of it too. Good luck to you buddy.Just remember...there is a very fine line between obedience and oppression. A - layleh
Malka dear, it was a nice artical and informative to me. And as long as you can help just one person with it it was well worth it. Thank you. Some people just feel if they point out others mistakes they feel better. So see! You helped them too. ?Be kind to one another. - JeannieK5
