Sleeping Habits of the Rich & Famous

Sleeping Habits of the Rich & Famous infographic

Even though we are all told that the recommended amount of sleep is 8 hours, everyone seems to function differently on the same amounts of sleep. The Sleeping Habits of the Rich & Famous infographic from Big Brand Beds introduces the sleep cycles of famous and successful people. I guess one sleep cycle doesn’t fit all!

We’re always told about getting a regular, solid eight hours’ sleep when it comes to being productive and successful, but not everyone follows this seemingly sound advice. Some of the most famous, successful and driven people throughout history have had some very strange sleeping habits - from micro-kips to sleeping in phases. We’ve got the oddest rich and famous sleeping habits in this new infographic.

There’s no way I could work with the staggered sleep patterns of Thomas Edison or Leonardo Da Vinci.

I like this design with simple time scales to show the sleep patterns and the series of circles to show the total number of hours per day. The visualization is repeated for each person, so once you understand the first one, you can easily understand the rest.

The design should have included the URL directly to the infographic landing page in the footer so readers can easily find the original, full-size version when they see the infographic on another site. Since they used a blog post as the infographic landing page, it will get shuffled down the blog page quickly as they post additional content. Don’t make your readers hunt for your infographic, or they will just give up and move on.

Thanks to Dave for sending in the link!
