Habits Of Famous Slender
Practically every day we are reminded about the importance of a quality of a good night’s sleep. It’s important for us to function properly, to avoid accidents and to have a good life overall.
However, all of that is is taken to a whole new level by many famous people. They consider sleep to be a precious commodity and often a strategic tool. Because their sleeping habits affect their job performance, they do everything in their power to get the maximum out of it. Which means ruining their circadian rhythm, or their nightly sleep, is a common thing for these people.
For example, Albert Einstein usually both slept during the night and during the day. Compared to him, Nikola Tesla used to suffer from nightmares as a child. So he decided to follow the Uberman sleep cycle and never slept for more than 2 hours a day. At one point, Tesla managed to work for 84 hours with no rest whatsoever.
Charles Dickens, on the other hand, had different sleeping rituals and beliefs. That’s why he always had his bed facing north. He thought this would improve his creativity.
There are plenty of other famous people that stuck to a polyphasic sleeping cycle. It means sleeping several times per day throughout a day. Thomas Edison, Buckminster Fuller, and Leonardo Da Vinci are just some of the names that followed this popular sleep pattern.
