Day 3 was OK with regard to polyphasic sleeping but apart from this – well lets forget it. Continue reading
OK, This will be a short entry, since I am late for my core nap. Continue reading
OK. This was a perfect start with regards to discipline and timing. Executed core and all naps exactly as planned. And I also managed to work some on the app… Continue reading
OK, after my unexperienced stumbling to the field of philosophy in the last post, here now the more practical details for the next weeks. Continue reading
Another four months are gone since the miserable last polyphasic experiment. It’s getting warm again. The days are getting longer too.
And I was inspired – by classic literature! Continue reading
Ah it feels good to be on this trip again
Just as expected the first day was nothing special.
Was a bit tired at 02:00am, and again at 07:00pm but then I get always tired at this time – no matter how much I slept the night before.
Day 0 – Everyman3 started – without any preparation
OK, maybe I should have prepared at least mentally a bit, but on the other hand: Why? I am surely motivated to have another go. So without further ado I jumped right into the next polyphasic cycle after not even thinking about the whole topic for more than a year. Kind of crazy, but exciting anyways. Continue reading
Monophasic sleeping is making me tired!
Just a quick glance at my first three monophasic nights after two weeks on Everyman3 –> I cannot compare the zeo data to “Pre-Polyphasic” sleeps, since I only purchased it recently but I think I sleep pretty much the same as before the experiment.
And I have the same “energy curve” during the day as before (did not track this so far though) with two “lows” in the morning hours at about 9 to 10 and one in the evenening from 5 to 8. Overall I am certainly not fitter than during everyman – au contraire.
Looking back at my just finished attempt at everyman3 (sleeping 3 hours per night and
taking three 20 minutes naps a day), I am still astonished how very easy and smooth I adapted to this schedule. I expected (for good reasons) at least frequent periods of heavy drowsiness and sleep deprivation. Come on: I only slept for 4 hours each day.
But no: I tracked every sleeping and waking hour and there definitly was almost no sleep deprivation at all. Now I am specualting if this has something to do with the uberman experiment I did three weeks earlier.
Can this be a kind of training effect?
This was the icing on the cake. An almost artistic, poetical application of everyman3 in unusual circumstances. And a much much better end than the one on uberman, three weeks ago (Uberman / Day 14 – What an unworthy end).
What happened? It was high time again for me to visit my two elder sons who live near the city of Stuttgart, some 500km from here. Normally it takes me 4 hours by car taking the Autobahn, but I decided to go by motorbike, avoid the Autobahn completly and drive over land instead. And being a polyphaser, I went by night…
