| | I'm starting
I've heard about polyphasic sleep for a long time and circumstances have made it easy for me to try. I work from home, I live alone so all the time will be mine to manage.
I tried starting yesterday, with scheduled 20 minutes naps at 1, 5, 9 am and PM. By my calculation, that would be 2 hours of sleep per 24 hour cycle.
It started well but I overslept badly from 5 am to 1 pm, basically a night's sleep.
This time I had only one alarm clock which I think I managed to close while sleeping.
I'm curious to hear suggestions about this sleep schedule and about how to prevent oversleeping. Multiple alarms are a must as I see, but is there anything else in our arsenal?
