As an often-sleep-deprived salaryman, I am ecstatic to see the article published, as seemingly all of Japanese society mistakenly believes in just about every myth presented here.

Regarding this one:

“being able to fall sleep ‘anytime, anywhere’ is a sign of a healthy sleep system.”

...I was even told that this is an ability that every person should have acquired by adulthood, and not having it is a sign of immaturity and that I should find a way to develop it!

Far too many people believe these myths.

Do what works for YOU, not what others say works for them.

My equation is now to sleep twice as long but also get twice as much done when you do get up. On average I sleep about 10 hours a night.
