Bi-modal Sleep Patterns

Bi-modal Sleep Patterns

There's an interesting article on the BBC News site about bi-modal sleep patterns - basically says that waking at night for a couple of hours and then sleeping again is probably how we used to sleep before the focus on 8 hours' sleep a night became widespread. Over the past couple of years, I've drifted into this First Sleep and Second Sleep pattern. Any others out there?

Sorry that link may not work so please try this one.

I usually fit into a 2 sleep pattern, although not normally 4 hours. I had never heard of this before.

Thought this was very interesting and positive,
