Sleepless: The Japanese sleeps only half an hour a day, but remains cheerful and full of energyPictolic
36-year-old Daisuke Hori from Japan has spent the last 12 years training his mind and body to stay awake as long as possible. The man claims that it is enough for him to take a nap for only 30 minutes a day so as not to feel tired. As proof, the Japanese allowed him to film his life around the clock for three days. Find out if the young man is telling the truth from our material.
Have you ever thought that it would be better to spend the time allotted for sleep on something more useful? Daisuke Hori also thought about this. He began to gradually reduce the sleep time and brought it from 8 hours to half an hour. The Japanese claims that he did not suffer from any serious side effects. The man headed the Japanese association of people who do not sleep enough, and now teaches others how to reduce sleep time and enjoy life more.
Daisuke recently appeared on the air of a popular Japanese TV show, where he spoke about his unusual sleep routine. The man says that he did not have enough 16 hours a day to do everything planned, so he decided to sleep less. For several years, he managed to gradually reduce the sleep time to half an hour, while remaining cheerful and healthy.
To check the veracity of Daisuke's story, the producers of the show offered to shoot his life on camera around the clock for three days. He agreed to have the film crew with him all this time. Indeed, the Japanese slept only 30 minutes a day, and sometimes less.
On the first day, the Japanese woke up at eight in the morning. First, he went to the gym, then read, wrote articles, played video games, and in the evening went to a meeting with friends. After dinner, Daisuke shot several videos about sleep mode for his YouTube channel. After the recording, he ate again, did his homework and talked with subscribers in social networks. The man fell asleep about two o'clock in the morning and slept for only 26 minutes, after which he woke up even without an alarm clock. He got dressed and went out with friends in the middle of the night, then went to the gym and came home.
During the three-day test, Daisuke Hori played video games and mahjong in the evenings, met with friends who also do not sleep much. Together, they reduced their sleep time in order to spend more time together.
Most of all, the audience was interested in the question of how the 36-year-old man managed to overcome drowsiness after eating. Many people can not cope with drowsiness after insulin spikes. Daisuke says that he also felt drowsy. To overcome it, he used caffeine until his insulin levels returned to normal.
Even after the unusual regime of the Japanese was shown on television, many still do not believe that he sleeps only 30 minutes a day for the last 12 years. Despite the fact that he reduced sleep gradually, it is still difficult to believe in such abilities.
Meanwhile, scientists have found that sleeping during the day is deadly. This is evidenced by the latest research by Chinese experts.
