Biphasic Sleep : Day 10

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.
