Wanted to know if polyphasic sleep cycles are healthy or not? I am specifically talking about the Uberman Sleep Schedule.

Hello. Sir I think you should know that though thete are few suggestions that a person can increase there optimal daily activity by having frequent nap where a person sleeps for 2 or more hours on a frequent basis in a day. But it is only theoretical nothing is convulsive. However frequent might be your nap time, you will still feel drowsy, easy tiredness, forgetfullness, irritability, headaches etc, if your monophasic/ continous sleep for atleast 6 hrs is altered. So I kindly advise you to follow the regular sleep cycle. If you are not satisfied kindly consult a sleep therapist for further management.
