I'll put the series of data in every day to see/show trends and just the most recent commentary. Hope this is helpful to somebody! Otherwise would just be putting this down on my own mac for my own review
Nighttimes are fine and they've only changed a bit (below), but I'm still not doing the 90 minute bit, in part because of getting home too late the last few days.
I'd like to ultimately get the 90 minute nap in starting either around 5 or 600PM then make 1030PM to 300AM the Nightsleep block. This would give me, say 3 hours of evening working/reading/movie time between nap and nighttime, an extra early morning hour and synch in with my husband's usual pm schedule.
It make sense to me to try to regularize these times, and I'll give the nap time above a try today.
(My cat has an extremely keen sense of timing and it only takes him a day or two to adapt to any new schedule before he's waking me up at some new time, pretty amazing....I set an alarm but only occasionally wind up using it--either I wake up myself or my cat wakes me up!)
11/15 Day 2 Nap ("Nap") 800-1100PM then to bed
Nightsleep 1130-345AM---3:00hrs + 4:15 hrs//Total: 7:15hrs
Day 2 Notes: Since the first day 11/13, I find myself sleeping really deeply and dreaming more. Main possibly explanatory changes are (1) the intent to make this change, reading abt sleep and related focus, (2) the switch from 30 minute pwr naps in the earlier part of the pm (anywhere from 12N to 530PM, depending upon circumstances) to longer (!!) naps in the later pms and (3) regularly shortening nightsleep from abt 6 hrs to 4:30hrs.
Work related activity has affected the schedule. Now I'll have the next 2 days completely self scheduled, then a gang of folks coming to our house for a weekend of playing music, starting Friday evening, ending Sunday pm. Will try to get nap in early on Friday before anyone comes, and see what I can do abt a nap Saturday (maybe in the car driving 1.5hrs to a gig --
I'll have someone with their eyes open do the steering wheel part)
