Sleep is essential: Elon Musk, the world’s second richest man, says less than 6 hours of sleep reduces productivity, at what age
Do you get less than 6 hours of sleep? This is dangerous if you do. Elon Musk, the world’s second richest man, has outlined the pros and cons of sleep. Elon is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. They say that they now get 6 hours of sleep every night, which is why getting less sleep reduces productivity. Elon Musk was sharing the experience on the podcast show ‘The Jo Rogan Experience’.
However, Musk also said that they have a lot of work to do right now. They often meet until one or two o’clock at night. According to Musk, my productivity decreases when I try to sleep less. Even though I don’t want to get more than 6 hours of sleep.
To be successful a person has to work 80 hours a week
To be successful, a person has to work at least 80 hours a week, Musk said. If you really want to change the world you live in, the working hours in a week can be up to 100 hours. There was a time when I only slept and worked for a few hours.
In 2018, Tesla employees told Business Insider that Musk has always been seen sleeping on a table, desk and even on a factory floor.

Do you take a nap for 10 to 15 minutes or half an hour a day? It’s just called a power nap. That means the power nap is a small nap. You can take it during the day to relax the body.

Sleep deprivation increases the risk of weight gain and obesity
There is a connection between sleep and weight, according to research from the National Institutes of Health. Sleep deprivation increases the risk of weight gain and obesity. According to one study, adults who get only 5 hours of sleep each night gain an average weight of 80 grams in 5 nights.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people between the ages of 18 and 60 should get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. People between the ages of 61 and 64 should get 7 to 9 hours of sleep. About 35% of American adults get less than 7 hours of sleep.
What is the science behind getting a minimum of 6 hours of sleep?
At bedtime we should complete 4 cycles. A sleep cycle is 90 minutes. So 6 hours of sleep should be taken to complete 4 sleep cycles.
In the power nap we have NRME (Non Rapid Eye Movement) stage A movement, while the brain is waving. Eye movement has slowed down instead of stopped and body temperature has not dropped. If this happens you will go into deep sleep and waking up from there is not considered power napping.
