| | about to try biphasic sleep
I randomly stumbled on this method of sleeping and I am very interested. I am fairly certain I am an insomniac because I do not feel remotely tired until late into the am like 3, since I am in college it has seemingly gotten worse and I spend on average 2 hours or more lying in my bed waiting to fall asleep, when I finally do I manage to stay asleep but its a horrible chore to wake up in time for classes, some at 8 am, and i have slept randomly till 5pm multiple times as well as not being able to fall asleep whatsoever several nights and having to wait until the next night to catch up, resulting in even more oversleeping. I also am always lethargic throughout the day until 5-6pm where I am wide awake. If I were to fall asleep at say 1 am, without forcing myself to get up I would probably be in bed till 1 or 2pm
If you don't want to read through the above, paraphrased: I have never been able to get good quality sleep and stay up late (not intentionally) and oversleep when I finally do fall asleep.
If this method does get you more quality sleep and have you feeling more alert when your awake then I am greatly interested in it.
I just have a few questions:
Do you guys take your nap first, say at night around 8pm, then go about your business, then take your "core" nap several hours later? Or do these schedules differ to meet the needs of the individual/their schedule.
For someone with horrible sleeping patterns like myself how many hours for the nap and core sleep could you recommend?
I am planning on adopting this method while I am home away from studies over our holiday break and look forward to good results, this will greatly save me stress and probably years of life if it works out well!
thanks to anyone who can help with these questions or any input to my post!
