I'm taking a break from the polyphasic sleep schedules. For whatever reason, I haven't been able to relax enough to fall asleep during my naps. As a result, I'm not getting enough REM time. Now I know what "tired" really feels like.
On the other hand, I know that I can get some extra hours of wake time several times per week. The key is shaking up the schedule to see what actually works. These past few days have been very useful in finding what I'm capable of.
With luck, my next post will be about what skills I have as an employee. I'd ask everyone who reads this entry to think about what jobs might be a good match for my skills. I'd like to make a switch before burning out.
