Part of the show Dreams, Sleep, and The Body Clock

Question

Les asked:

why don't I get tired ?

Answer

Lucky man ! This is to do with the amount of sleep that people get in the first place. Deep sleep and REM sleep is the key. The more people get of this the less sleep they need, which is why people sometimes say they only need 4 or 5 hours sleep rather than the standard 8 hours.
