I had been meaning to throw up a post yesterday and was planning on doing so but I of course fell asleep around quarter after twelve. A little disappointing but I'm not too concerned as I've picked up a new attitude towards this experiment that I'll share later in the post.
First off, two days ago was not a very good day. I woke up at five right on schedule then I took a quick nap that turned into a one hour nap from nine to ten. Then my afternoon nap went fine enough but I fell asleep at about eleven; much too early. That day was pretty bad but yesterday went better. Yesterday everything went according to plan except that I fell asleep about half an hour early as I shared before.
And today I got up at seven and am going to have my nap in five minutes.
The reason I'm not too concerned about sometimes sleeping in or missing naps is firstly because this is an experiment and secondly, few people actually live their live in such specific and exact schedules. I realize that's not always the case with polyphasic sleep cycles but it's still applicable. I view going to bed half an hour or an hour early the same as I would if I was just doing one big block of sleeping. It's not a big deal. If you disagree you can leave your comment but this feels like a huge burden being lifted. Until tomorrow or the next day, have a great sleep!
