Waking up two hours during sleep is good.

the myth of the eight-hour sleep
an eight-hour sleep is unnecessary.

"With the advent of street lighting, however, socialising at night began to filter down through the classes."

"Night became fashionable and spending hours lying in bed was considered a waste of time."

"'For most of evolution we slept a certain way, says sleep psychologist Gregg Jacobs. 'Waking up during the night is part of normal human physiology.'"

In the early nineteen-nineties, psychiatrist Thomas Wehr's study stated that people can sleep four hours, wake for one to two hours, then, sleep again.

"During this waking period people were quite active. They often got up, went to the toilet or smoked tobacco and some even visited neighbours."

I have always liked to do this, since becoming an adult.

I was stopped from doing this in March 1996.
