Week 2 summary: 1 month free
No, I’m not taking one month off of polyphasing, what do you think I am? Weak? No no, one month to experiment. And here’s what I’m going to do:
After feeling that I had succefully adjusted to SPAMAYL, I found myself still being extremly bored with all the free time I had. I had switched to polyphasic sleeping specifically for University (turning easy mode on ) but University is still 1 month away! So instead of being bored that whole time, I decided to experiment a little.
Now, I’m obviously not going to be able to seperate myself from the world and light and dark cues and all that nonsense that the wikipedia page will tell you about free-running sleep. As well, I’m sure I will be afected by other things, like having a job, that will disrupt my awake/asleep times. However, I will try my best to give my body an honest chance to decide for itself when it wants to be asleep and to get up.
I will be following a few rules to help me study my sleep:
-Sleep only when I’m tired, if I Think it will take me longer then 10 mins to go to sleep, then I won’t sleep
-In the spirit of Polyphasic sleeping, I will be setting an alarm to go off 20 mins after laying down.
-If I’m still tired when my alarm goes off I am allowed to start it again and immediatly take another 20 mins.
-I will be sleeping in a hammock. (hopefully this will help with lightness of sleep and comfort)
-I WILL be working out. (I’ve put it off FAR too long with SPAMAYL, I just can’t stand not lifting heavy things for any longer)
-I will write down every time that I fall asleep and every time that I awake.
Seeing as there are no right or wrong times, I won’t feel ashamed to publicize them at all and you know they will be 100% truthful (not that I have lied or anything up to this point). What I am wondering is if the community is interested in my log of sleep/awake times? I will be keeping the record for my own interests, I was just wondering if you guys were interested. I don’t want to fill up the front page unnecissarily.
Oh, by the way, this week whent pretty great. Aside from a little experimentation that knocked me out of routine, everything whent smoothly as planned. I’ve learned a few things that will hopefully help me pick SPAMAYL back up in one months time.
