Biphasic Sleep, Day 4
I'm thinking about chain reactions today. Yesterday I tried to go to bed earlier, at 12:30am, so I could start getting 4.5 hours of core sleep instead of 3. I couldn't fall asleep because I was already getting used to falling asleep at 2am, so I ended up getting up after a half-hour of sleeplessness and then going back to bed at 2:30am. Getting only 2.5 hours of sleep was not acceptable for my body; therefore I overslept...badly.
Realizing that this is the third day in a row that I've slept too much in the morning (in one way or another), I've cut my afternoon nap to 20 minutes. The hope is that I'll then be able to go to bed at 12:30am, getting a full 4.5 hours of sleep. Getting that amount of sleep should make me not (as) tired in the morning, so that I don't oversleep or take extra naps in the morning.
