fundamentals for LDing
effects of lack of sleep on the body
lack of sleep (well, less sleep obviously)
I would recommend making sleep a priority, it is unhealthy to sleep so little. You should try to get 7, but 6 would be fine. Usually, if you sleep 6 hours you can be more organized and do better at things like school and work, even with less time devoted to them. I used to get that much sleep each night (same reasons) and I struggled at work and with some school, when i started sleeping at night I began getting less friction at work and better grades. Most "sleep deprivation techs for LDing" are more like "miss sleeping for 4 hours one night when on a good schedule." People say that WILD should be easier because you are more tired, this is probably because you have never.wild and the concept seems to be "bring wake and sleep together", but it isnt, it is to fall asleep while aware and feels more like a balancing act of awareness, memory, and sleep, so with sleep deprivation you are trying to balance when the scales are extremely tipped one way, towards the way with less memory and recall and pulls you harder to sleep. you will likely just fall asleep and everythinf be black for 4 hours, maybe one dream at the end.
168 hours in a week, lets put it like this
68 hours for work, commute, and work related projects
lets say school takes you 40 hours a week (because you are top notch student)
56 hours a week for sleep? lets knock that down to 42.
18 hours to play, or 2 and a half hours of free time a day.
This is just my estimation of your free time, but I dont know the work school balance, and if you are a freshman in college it could be much less college, in later years it could be more.
Get some sleep! lol. You dont want to be spending all the money on classes and not do as amazing as you should be due to sleep deprivation. excell!
