| | Polyphasic Experiment in December
I plan to begin my own polyphasic sleep experiment on December 11: I was lucky enough to plan out a class schedule next semester that allows equally-spaced naps. So I'll have the whole month to decide if it's viable for an actual school situation. I'm really surprised at how few people are trying this out. In particular, are there any other females trying polyphasic sleep?
I don't forsee any problems during the adjustment period, as I'll be on winter break. I'm not sure how I'll plan the adjustment, though. I've heard of splitting up your normal amount of sleep into the number of naps and then gradually shortening the time. That sounds logical. The other, is of course, diving straight in and weathering the sleep deprivation until the body adjusts. Hmm--I think I'll go with the first, unless there's another method I've missed?
