Just one problem - I can't fall asleep at all during my naps.
Is this something that I eventually will be able to after some time? I'm pretty tired during the day, but still can't fall asleep during the nap.
Those times are pretty close to my own.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind here -
You'll get better at falling asleep once your body gets used to the new routine. I'm fine up until about 7:30, and then I suddenly get tired and can be asleep about 10 minutes later.
The other thing is that your lifestyle plays a big role in determining how long it will take to fall asleep (diet, exercise, stress etc). Were you having trouble falling asleep before you switched to a biphasic routine?
