Neetu's Post # 1 Night 2

It's the second night of our new polyphasic napping transition. It's insane. I am sooooo psyched that this is actually going to work out. Ty is already passed the hard phase, so it's totally possible. It's 4:40 in the morning and he is more than functional. My last nap was a failure. I laid there trying to fall asleep with no luck. so, i missed that one. Oh well, the next one is in 20 minutes. I'm gonna sleep like a baby. During the day, the napping is great because it is an energy burst every 3 1/2 hours. Who wouldn't like that. I was much more alert and attentive today during school, which normally doesn't happen. This is a great way to continue living. I will have so much more time to do all of the things that I have even the slightest interest in pursuing or just trying out. Ok, too tired to write. It takes too long to type right now and my eyes are getting blurry. Reminder to self: post congratulatory/encouragement letter to myself during next cycle.

happy napping.

Hacking Sleep: Sleep Less but Still feel Alert.

On Ideas

I love to sleep. I've slept easily 10 hours on average my life so far. Even though I love sleep I realize one thing:

Needless sleep has easily been the most unproductive thing I’ve done in my life.

Oversleeping is horrible. For one I find sleeping more than 9 hours a day usually begets more sleep, making you actually feel drowsier the majority of the day even though you technically slept more than enough. Furthermore sleeping extra just takes up time. sleeping 10 hours a day as opposed to 6 or 7 means I’m not awake for a whopping 90-110 hours a month. This adds up really quickly. Those extra 3 hours could be used to learn a language, programming, watch a good movie or documentary, exercise etc. Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to spend learning vocabulary or studying? Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to come up with a strategy for your business?
