The transition to this superb method of sleeping.


Biphasic sleep : Day 29

A bit of oversleeping, but only 40 minutes. I'm not at all concerned by that; particularly following yesterday's change to the routine. Still, one major observation can be made regarding going out in the evening (during the scheduled nap time):...


Biphasic sleep : Day 28

Keeping to the 'week of waking before the alarm', I shaved a massive 35 minutes off this morning. Not quite sure why; though as I'm not currently feeling any negative effects I'm not overly concerned. Will see if things change...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 27

Once again I woke up before the alarm (by about 30 minutes this time); however I decided to roll over and go back to sleep. When the alarm sounded I wasn't sleeping terribly deeply, and getting out of bed wasn't...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 26

As per yesterday, I woke up this morning before the alarm (beat it by about 20 mins), with the day all-but-planned. This state of being 'ready to go' is fantastic - highly productive. A beautiful thing. Following nap Not bad....


Biphasic Sleep : Day 25

I must have been pretty close to waking when the alarm went off this morning. Usually when the alarm sounds my thoughts are along the lines of 'ugh, what?' - this morning I was going step-by-step through the day's major...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 24

Biphasic Sleep : Day 23

As Mike's been finding lately, trying to sleep in the daytime just isn't the same. After 90 minutes of lying in bed thinking about sleep, I decided to get back up and wait until I was ready to collapse before...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 22

Slept a little under 3 hours; woke naturally. All feels well, other than the fact that I'm excruciatingly tired. Another rather lengthy day ensues. Following nap Did it again - another 6 hour marathon. Today's weariness even ruled out a...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 21

Not quite in Zombie mode, but near enough. Last night included some late (even by my standards) work on the PC, and I didn't end up getting to bed until a little before 05:00. In order to wake up at...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 20

Serious bedhead. Judging by the way I feel there were no more than 3 hours of decent quality sleep in that 4.5 hours. That isn't too bad - although this afternoon's squats should be interesting. Following nap One of the...


Biphasic Sleep : Day 19

That was a luxurious 4.5 hours' sleep - at least it would've been if I could stop thinking about the various things I'd be doing today. I probably got 3 hours' total out of that 4.5 (yes, I should've written...
