Biphasic Sleep : Day 10

Not bad at all.

Biphasic sleep : Day 10That extra 1.5 hours makes a difference. Although I'm still very much aware of having worked out yesterday, I feel pretty much the same as I would have prior to this experiment. Not bad at all.

Following nap

Just before I'd planned to get the usual 90 minutes' shut-eye I received a rather stressful phone call (which I terminated quite abruptly after a couple of minutes) and accordingly allowed myself a little longer to fall asleep. My usual trick worked here - by writing down the problem + proposed solution I'm able to put it out of my mind for a while, safe in the knowledge that I can easily come back to it later and the answer will already be there. It's a handy way of eliminating a lot of pre-sleep stress.

The sleep itself was deep, and I awoke feeling quite refreshed 1.5 hours later. I'm definitely starting to get used to this.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
