As to the question of switching from 4.5 to 6, I'd say you may as well. 6 hours' quality sleep is a lot better than 4.5 that leaves you tired. There won't be any transition time involved, the 6 will just feel like you've slept in. Try it and see.
Thanks for the reply! I actually decided to switch from 4,5 hours of sleep to 6 hours of sleep. My current schedule is 20:30-22:00 + 03:00-7:30 and it's working great. I am really amazed by the results. I have much more energy and more time. Sometimes I even lose track of what day it is
My only problem is that on Fridays I'm going to miss my nap because I'm busy from 16:00-03:00. So my question is how much affect does missing your nap have and how can I make up for the lost sleep time? Should I take a nap at some other time or sleep 6 hours or more at 03:00?
