If You Could Take a Pill So You Didn’t Ever Have to Sleep, What Would You Do With Your Time? Here’s What People Said.

I’ve often thought about what I’d be able to accomplish if I didn’t have to get a little shut-eye every night…

The possibilities are endless, don’t you think?

You bet they are!

If you were given a pill that allowed you to never sleep, what would you do with all that extra time?

AskReddit users shared their thoughts.

1. Get ‘er done.

“Complete the stack of games I don’t have time to start.

And complete the stack of books I’m too busy to read.”

2. Now you have the time.

“It’s literally having more free time each day to do things that I don’t have time for.

Finish cleaning my office, clean my room, have time to workout… or just play more video games.”

3. We wish you luck.

“Maybe find a spare hour in the day where my kids leave me alone long enough to finally have s** with my husband!”

4. A time to clean.

“I’d spend more time cooking, cleaning, and reading.

Likely spend a few nights just watching shows and documentaries, though.”

5. Now’s the time.

“At 31, I’d go back to college in addition to working a night shift somewhere.

I’d basically use it as an excuse to turn my life around.”

6. We hope you get it done.

“Plan to do my homework…

With procrastination included…”

7. There you go.

“I’d still nap every now and then recreationally though.

And I’d just do fun/non work related stuff. No use in giving up sleep for anything else.”

8. WORK.


Weeks fly by, I wake up at 4 am every morning and learn/work/apply. And I just can’t stand that one morning you wake up on Monday, blink, and it’s already Sunday.

I don’t have time talking with friends, even parents. I would rather take the pill that stops time and makes me interact with Space in no-time Continuum…”

9. The important stuff.

“Getting some much needed time to play some video games I haven’t been able to get into because of work!

Also, work in training my dog to walk with a leash and harness.”

10. A variety of things.

“I could work normal hours, have time to veg out, have time to cook, clean, exercise, learn new skills, read books.

I would have so much more time.”

11. Some time for you.

“Parent here: have time for myself and not feel so d**ned exhausted ALL OF THE TIME.

First order of business would be ensuring kids didn’t find out about it until they were adults.”

12. The good life.

“Learn a new language, write more, paint more, exercise more.

And read for pleasure, which I never have time to do anymore.”

13. It would be awesome.

“I always feel like I haven’t done enough with my day so I h**e to go to sleep and end my day. I would most likely use it 5/7 days of the week.

Get any and all work done, conquer a lot more in my readings, 100% a lot more of my games, and probably travel around at night. Too many things to do with that power.”
