Can we get by on less sleep?

It's hard to avoid in this demanding lifestyle that we have in the modern age, that sleep is this thing that sort of always comes up. We never have enough of it at the same time we wished we could get by with much less of it. We talk about it every day. We talk about the importance of getting a good night's rest and yet we don't. And yet we get less time than our ancestors did over a, a typical night doctors recommend eight hours of sleep a day, but that ends up equating to one third of your life. So for many people, there's this temptation. To maybe push a little bit on how late we can stay up or how early we can wake up and, and get a little bit more out of our days.
