What’s a sleep divorce, you might ask? Simply put, it’s sleeping in a different bed or bedroom from your partner or spouse, allowing you both to sleep peacefully on your own schedule and in the environment that suits your needs best. It might sound extreme (and a little like an old-fashioned sitcom trope), but it turns out that sleeping on your own might be the key to getting the best night’s rest ever, and a new survey of 3,000 Americans shows that around 31% of us actually want to get a sleep divorce.

So you dont suffer from depression but have a hunch you found the solution?

I'd say plenty of rest followed by plenty of worthwhile activity that gets you to a goal and makes you feel like you have achieved summat is way better.

I have coped with my issues via sleeping as long as possible. I can sleep 14 hours most days if no one wakes me up.

On days that I have to work, I only get about 7 hours of sleep which according to everyone else is a fine amount but I get very sick in the morning and can't get my tummy under control until around 10 or 11 am. Sometimes I wonder if it's my nerves making me sick when I wake up- but I have seen and heard enough about this sleep less theory that I'd like to try it out.

Maybe if I can get into a routine I'll stop getting sick every morning. It's been that way since I was 15 and I'm 27 now so I'm fairly used to it but for obvious reasons, it's not very fun or enjoyable to wake up each morning vomiting.

Sure, whatever works for you. The average, healthy adult can miss a night's sleep without any real consequences.

It's cumulative though. After a few days of this, you might start seeing things that aren't there. That's why truck driver are required to get a certain amount of sleep.

Believe me, I've tried sleeping in another room. Still can't sleep. It's THAT BAD.

will NOT work if you hate your job 12 hour day.
come home to a empty flat. and in lots of debt.

If you enjoy your job like the people you work with.
have a loving wife! and a dog. not in debt.
You will NOT get depression.

depression is many things.
mostly insecurity !

You actually will get used to getting less sleep. It’ll take a few days and then you won’t even notice. Also, don’t dwell on the fact that you only slept 6hrs instead of 8 the next day. It’ll make you tired

True for most, but some are depressed even with all those positives. A customer of mine, millionaire Indian dude, big house, $250,000 Mercedes, nice wife who loved him, two kids. One got into Stanford. Smart guy. Loved all things tech. We always talked about sci fi and space, and how much I’d charge him to crawl under his house and remove the dead possum that starting to smell. $300. He would’ve paid more.Lol. I almost threw up when I grabbed it and it was soft, smelly and fell apart in my hand. He hung himself last month.

It doesn't sleep twenty four hours a day, it is up and getting in trouble when you aren't there. You need to increase your awareness, you really did not mess your house as much as you thought. Cats are helpful with knocking things over and are excelent at hiding it so you think it just fell or think you must have screwed up. They will move boxes so when you go near them they fall over, and will push glasses next to the edge of the counter or table.

It is a catspiracy.

I think most people are actually quality sleep deprived and a lot of adults don't want to admit it but they need a nap during the day. I used to go out during my lunch at work and take a 30 min nap in the backseat of my car. It was absolutely refreshing. You drink something caffeinated before you take a nap, and then take a quick nap and you will have a ton of energy!

A recent study actually worked out that under supervision you can cure severe depression in a very short time by sleep deprivation.... now I cant remember the exact method so dont go try it on you own. But it was something avout the doctors keeping the pstient awake for three days. Then roll back in normal sleep.

After that you should also be sure to get your proper sleep and not stay up. But the depression should have clear because the lack of sleep should have fixed the brain chemistry....

Due to work, I only sleep 4-5 hours a night M-F. Sat and Sun I sleep 8-10 hours. I’m just as depressed whether weekends or weekdays.

It's the adrenaline rush! Don't trust it! Man was not meant to function on sleep deprivation!

Sleep! Sleep! Sleeeeeep!


5 hours isn't sleep deprivation as I suggested, it's plenty to function properly but you'll be a little tired.

There is no biological law stating that we need 8 hours of sleep, that's the biggest myth in health, not supported by all medical studies.


How much sleep I need depends on many factors; how tired I am, how fresh the air is in the room, how much noise there is, what I've eaten.

I've had a refreshing six hour sleep in hotel rooms with filtered air conditioning. Best rooms were on the quiet side of the hotel - they actually looked onto the concrete wall of another building (no street lights, crowds, beeping horns, just pure darkness). Same with countryside hotels - quiet rural areas with fresh air.

Awful sleep in rooms with no air circulation or with a nightclub across the road, or hotel guests bashing their luggage against the fire doors as they went out.

A lot of my sleep quality depends on my pillows. I hate hot squish pillows and can't stand memory foam beds at all. I am a freezing cold temp person, but I just don't understand how people can sleep on memory foam, it seems too stuffy and hot.

I kind of agree. I do better when I get up at the same time everyday and make myself do stuff.

But, I'll tell you what causes me more depression then anything else: Fast Food

I don't know what they put in that stuff - - - but, I do know I become lethargic with low grade depression whenever I eat it.

So, I don't any more.
