Research Into Best Sleep Patterns

Thanks to Leah:
This video explores the amount of sleep humans need to experience
"complete wakefulness", something that modern day society seems to
work against. Our internal body clocks initially know the amount of
sleep we need to function to the best of our abilities, but we adjust
them to fit our schedules and our priorities. Studies have shown that
ideal sleep patterns for maximum wakefulness during the day do not
follow the normal patterns we observe (a chunk of sleep during the
night), but rather favor two different chunks of sleep per night, with
an hour or two of meditative quiet in between.
