My question is : are there any long-term biphasic sleepers out there? I'd love to hear of your experiences over a couple of years or more.
I've just started this (2 days ago!) with the intention (!) of 4.5 hours at night and 90 minute nap at some other time.
There are two pretty well developed threads on this board--"log your polyphasic sleep" and "has anyone tried to reduce their sleep"--these are approximations of the headers, but you can find them.
With your experience, have you noticed, or have your read or heard anything abt the relative importance of timing the daytime nap regularly? Of couse, it's intuitive that it would make the most sense to do this, but hard to accomplish for a lot of folks in this culture.
I have a regular nighttime sleep block, but that second part I can see will not be easy to put at the same time every day.
Maybe it doesn't matter so much as long as you get it.
I'll be real interested to hear of your experience in this.
For interest, if you don't mind my asking what are your particular hours nighttime and naptime, do they vary and what has been the effect of any variance?
