I had my afternoon sleep period at 2:00 today and it went well. I went to sleep within minutes and even though I felt a little groggy afterwards I was still refreshed. As far as this morning went however, I was slightly tired up until about 9:00 or 10:00. I’m not sure for the reasoning behind this as the mornings have usually been a time of alertness so far. I don’t think that this was a sign for concern as it was only a slight drowsiness and I functioned completely fine.
This morning I got a lot of stuff done. I did some work for my dad, I almost finished the art work that I had posted earlier in the blog and I also updated the blog a bit. I don’t know if the sleep cycle has given me a new mentality or it just allows me to get more work done but for the amount of work that I have completed I am very satisfied.
I have no side effects to mention although I had been thinking and since this biphasic sleep cycle has gone so well and the transition has been relatively easy, I might be able to try another sleep routine later this summer. I would like to try something that has even less rest in it. I am thinking of the dymaxion cycle. For information or an easy to understand graph, go here. This cycle looks to be the most extreme as it calls for four 30 minute naps a day. That’s a total of two hours slept a day. Hopefully that will provide a greater challenge.
Let me know what you think of these ideas!
