I overslept on my earlier nap today. Ty calls and is like "are you sleeping, I'm coming over" I'm like "No, No, I'm always up", not feeling like taking a verbal berating in my fragile state. I think we both knew I was full of shit.
I thought I was done. I had no extra naps last night, and felt good throughout. But I slept right through the alarm this morning. I had turned down the volume on my computer to listen to some music and forgot to turn it back up before the nap. Also, I think I might be associating the wake up song with sleep now that I've had it waking me up 10+ times in 2 days. So now I have a presleep ritual:
1. Check volume
2. Check timer
3. Change the song.
My neighbors saw me walking around in my pjs too, good times. So over the last 7 days I've averaged probably 3.5-4 hours sleep per day rather than my usual 8. That's massive progress. Now it's just about getting rid of that oversleeping and feeling good throughout the night. The day is cake now. You will oversleep if given the chance for even 2 seconds in the transition phase. With the right presleep and wake up routines, along with the optional extra nap, this problem should be eliminated for good.
