Dwayne Johnson about his strict sleep regimen


Dwayne Johnson has recently revealed that he does not get more than 3 to 5 hours of sleep a night. It might seem impossible to get enough rest over those couple of hours of sleep, but as it turns out, such strict regimen works pretty well for the famous actor.

“The only thing that’s regimented is I have to wake up before the sun gets up. And I have my two hours alone when no one else is up and the house is quiet,” the former wrestler explained. He uses those quiet hours to plan his day, work out, and meditate. “I often sacrifice two hours of sleep just so I can have the quiet two hours that I need before the whole house wakes up, including the animals,” The Rock admitted.


As you already know, Johnson has quite a lot on his plate, so it’s no wonder he had to develop some sort of strategy to be productive enough, even if that means sacrificing his rest hours. “I need the mental time in the beginning, and the next thing is my training time. Those are my two anchors, and once I’m able to anchor myself, I’m able to go to work, and then I get in my pickup truck and drive to set. I’m able to work 10, 12, 14 hours if I know that I’ve centered and anchored my day in the beginning,” he explained the importance of his regimen and why it has to be so strict.

Johnson stars in the new Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie, he plays the main role in the upcoming Fast and Furious spinoff. On top of that, we will see him in the sci-fi movie Rampage, Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Skyscrapers (not only does he star in this film, but he’s also one of the producers), and around a dozen of others. Well, no wonder he can afford only 3 to 5 hours to sleep, right?
