Patient : I'm a healthy adult male.
Since the recommended is 7-8 hours of sleep per night, can I safely get only 6 hours per night (going to bed at 11pm, up at 5am), and supplement that time with a 1 hour nap (taken at approx 4-5pm?)? This would be everyday, indefinitely.
Any replies are appreciated.
