Polyphasic Sleep Long-Term Consequences

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

One long-term consequence of the polyphasic sleep experiments I did in 2005-2006 is that I still retain the ability to fall asleep very quickly. Enough time has passed that I suspect this is a permanent change. These days when I decide to go to sleep, I can typically fall asleep within 30 seconds or less. […]

Monday, May 10th, 2010

I did my first Bikram (hot yoga) class today with Rachelle. She’s been asking me to try it for 4 months, so I finally decided to attend a class with her this morning to see what it was like. I’ve never done hot yoga before, so you could say my curiosity finally got the better […]
