I've recently mentioned on Twitter and Face Book that I'm investigating a polyphasic sleeping pattern. I was inspired by this site: dustincurtis.com/sleep.html which lead me to this site: www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/10/polyphasic-sleep/ which inspired me further.
It appealed to me to have some more hours in the day - especially if I was no worse for the wear. So far, it's been fun. My life is feeling less stressed because I have a few hours that are like gifts. They're free since I would not have them without a different sleeping schedule, so I can use them however I choose and not feel like I'm "wasting time." I don't feel any rush to complete anything during this time and it passes at a very relaxing pace.
I'm currently sleeping 4.5 hours per night. Then at 12, 5, and 10 I take a nap for 20 to 30 minutes. As I am about to go to sleep for the fourth time for only four and a half hours, I am wondering if three hours would work. I refuse to use this time to do more of the same. I'm not trying to get more done in a day. I'm trying to find the time to eliminate things from my schedule that don't support me. For the first time, I feel like I can catch up enough to find the life that I want to live. I'll try to explain that better in the future.
Even better, I can now have time to spend with my masturbation practice. :)
I'll use this blog entry to track the actual sleep times as close as I'm able to track them. Sometimes I forget to write the time down. Sometimes I need to shift the schedule because of other activities.
