Well, I’ve started my experiment in biphasic sleeping and even though it’s been two days I’ve had just as much energy and what not as usual. I thought the intial week would be hell, but it’s proving to be just mildly annoying. I say this because I still haven’t “reprogrammed” myself fully yet and so my body keeps on showing signs of not being aware of what the heck is going on. It’s adapting though, and I feel better today than yesterday, and expect to feel even better tomorrow…
What I am basically doing is going to bed around midnight and getting up at 5 (for a total of three 90-minute sleep cycles and an allowance of 30 minutes to fall asleep and/or get up if need be). My body wakes me up earlier if it finishes those cycles before five, and I’ve already experienced the joys of waking up a few minutes before the alarm. I then take a 90 minute nap around 1 or 2 PM. After the first week I wont need the alarm at all, but feel more comfortable using it while I’m getting used to the new scenario.
