One of my colleagues tells me that she can function well with little sleep. But, it is tough for me. Lately, I read two (kind-of) contrasting articles – one said that sleeping too much is not good and the other said that getting enough sleep is necessary (I am posting the link to the second one). The latter one also talks about a mutation that some people have – a gene mutation that helps them function well with less sleep.
