| | Biphasic sleep - one month onwards.
Well, this is it, the first day of the new month and I have been trailing biphasic sleep (4.5 core, 1.5 nap) for 30 days now, and just went back over my results.
Despite the occasional setback because of stupid mistakes like keeping the phone on during naps, not having the sound up on the alarm, or the fact we have a dog here whom barks occasionally at nothing, I did manage to get six hours most days.
There are times on six hours that I would be drifting off during lectures, having mini-naps, but these were usually the same classes which could be anything from the content presented to the fact that the room got a little stuffy because of hot weather.. but mostly I am staying awake with no real problems. I think it would be a different story if I was doing these six hours monophasically.
Where do I go from here? I have been thinking of trying out a core sleep of three hours, reducing my total sleep time to four and a half hours a day.. but for now I judge biphasic sleep as a sucess, and doubt I would ever go back to sleeping monophasically, or in anything other than 90 minute increments (unless I decided to give uberman a try, not something I can do at this time because of my current schedule).
