The morning of my day 6 biphasic sleep has easily been my easiest morning since I started the experiment. It took only 30-40 minutes before I wasn't too groggy anymore, which is a pretty big bonus.
I did get a little bit extra sleep last night, so that might have contributed, but I also didn't go to bed until 3am, so go figure.
...I slept in until 7:10am! That's a full 8 hours!
My alarm must have malfunctioned, or I slept through it. Either way, I overslept way too much.
I would definitely say this is a product of me taking my nap way too late. But there's not much I can do about it now, other than to simply continue on with the biphasic sleep pattern.
I'll take my nap today as usual, and then tomorrow I'll wake up early after my 4.5 hour sleep.
Right now, at 9:30am, I'm actually feeling more tired than I was yesterday. Maybe my body is now interpreting an 8 hour sleep as oversleeping? I definitely don't feel as alert as I was yesterday, which seems very much the opposite of what it should be.
I actually feel incredibly guilty about oversleeping, but I'm going to just do my best to fight that feeling, and allow myself to get back into the flow of things. It really is unfortunate timing though...
I'll just let it pass, and allow tomorrow to be another day of interesting Biphasic sleep.
12:45pm - I decided to try and take my nap early, and just like in day 2, I only fell asleep for maybe 5 minutes before waking up. That created a fair amount of frustration for me, but there was not much I could do. I never was able to nap at all today, but I'm hoping I'll be able to tomorrow.
I'm thinking that maybe the naps and noon might not work out, but I might try it again once more, this time with earplugs in to get rid of any outside noise that might disrupt my sleep.
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.
