Last night I didn't go to bed until 3am, so I slept until 7:45am, which is a total of 5 hours of sleep (instead of my regular 4.5).
Today was easier for me to wake up than yesterday, but I feel it was because I'm just more used to being tired, and my discipline might be increasing, rather than my body physically adjust to the change.
Although I definitely still felt very tired, I didn't have that same lethargic feeling that I would normally feel when I have to wake up early, so that might be a sign of some physical adaptation.
As you can tell from my notes above, engaging in activities and moving around has been a key factor in my sanity.
Doing these things has allowed me to still have a somewhat pleasant and happy day, even though I feel so lagged down by sleep.
Overall, day 3 has been better than day 2. I was very worried last night that I wouldn't be able to wake up on my own (Mike went home), but I did it just fine.
It's interesting to try and explain this whole sleep method to different people. Some are incredulous, and don't take it seriously, but they still want to "humor" me, or at least be polite about it.
Other people are more blunt about saying that they think it's bologna. It's a different way of thinking, and I can see the negative peer pressure becoming a big issue for anyone who wants to try it.
To be honest, there are some points where I would rather have not mentioned it at all, so at least I don't need to defend myself.
All I know, is that at the end of all of this, if it works I'll be able to continue on with the full confidence of saying "Well I feel incredibly energetic and not tired at all. What do you think of that?"
I feel it would be hard to debate me on such a topic if I'm living & breathing proof that such a schedule working just fine.
Of course, if might not work out. So I'll try not to open my mouth too much, lest I regret it later.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
