I just finished my second afternoon rest period half an hour ago. This time I was able to fall asleep fairly quickly and woke up at the sound of the alarm. I did get up right after the alarm went off. I had to move this sleep block forward so that I could be ready to take my girlfriend to the prom. Tomorrow I will have to keep the sleep period at 1:00 p.m. so that I can make her graduation ceremony. After that I will push the nap time back an hour to its original spot.
What has surprised me the most is how hungry this sleep cycle is making me. Normally I won’t have to eat too much and I won’t be hungry but my stomach constantly wants food. I haven’t figured out an eating schedule yet either. I just want some approximate times to base my meals around.
Prior to my afternoon rest I had not experienced any drowsiness whatsoever. I was completely awake and alert. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to fall asleep quickly but I guess I did.
I haven’t experienced any effects mentally or physically today so that is a positive sign. So far this experiment has been much more boring than I had hoped.
