after 2 naps that were less than satisfactory, I was able to get in a great nap. My body is craving a full night's rest,so I did not wake up feeling totally rested. I feel like I would after a night with 8 hours of sleep,but waking up on the "wrong" side of the bed. Just a little bit sluggish I suppose.
Manish's after nap comment:"For some reason, all of my tiredness is in my left eye" very funny and bizarre.
okay, continuing on....The first few minutes after waking up are pretty foggy, but after a little while my mind totally clears out and I can function again without thinking about my next nap.
You rock! this is going to be great. You are the queen of nappers, so this is just going to be natural.
Just a short list of all of the reasons that polynapping is awesome and how it will benefit my life:
-I get to nap throughout the day, which is great cause I always loved napping.
-Each nap is like a recharge, so I will be energy filled throughout the entire day.
-tons of productive time, throughout the entire day.
-I get to do all of my work at night, when everyone else is asleep. aka no distractions.
no after lunch drowsiness.
-Because I am only awake for about 3-4 hours at a time, my eating portions are much smaller, but in greater frequency, which is what is normally recommended anyways.
-Heightened mental function (hopefully) We'll see when I get to around day 20-21.
-Time to work on new projects that I just "didn't have the time for"
-No more jet lag!
-I get to see the sunrise and the sunset everyday, how cool is that?!
-I get to be a sleep snob!
-Tons of time to work out at the gym, specially at the odd hours of the day when no one else is there.
-no more worries about time differences when talking to friends around the globe.
-so much more awake time and exploring time when I am out traveling
-more time to make money, and more time to travel and spend my money.
-time to create passive streams of income
-much less stress.
this is just a short list of the unlimited number of reasons why this is the greatest thing ever!!
Also, what perfect timing. Just one month before I graduate from college. I can adjust to it now, and then have total freedom when I am out of college. I won't have to get a job. I will just spend my nights creating passive income, my days doing my network marketing business, and then free time at classes, learning fun new stuff, and meeting new people during the day. I feel like I will be much more productive on this sleep schedule as well. There is no need for caffeine, because each nap is an energy boost. Also, I am much more alert, so it will make working much more easily sustainable throughout the entire day. I can't wait to see how things unfold!
I just woke up from a nap. It was the first time that I woke up on my own!! I think that I am making great headway. Generally, day 3 and 4 are supposed to be the worst. So far, my day 3 was pretty great. I had an awesome nap in the evening, where I fell asleep pretty easily and then woke up pretty easily. Right now, a little after midnight, I am pretty excited that I still have the entire night ahead of me. I am already planning the things that I can get done for school and business. Just to give you a comparison, on the first night at about 5 am, my body and mind were both flipping out. basically saying "what is wrong with you Neetu? Have you turned into a nocturnal freak? Why are you doing this STUPID sleep experiment?!?!?! GO TO SLEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!!!!!!!" So, there has been great improvement since then.
On another note, I have seen some changes in my health in the past few days. On day 1, I started the day with allergies for some odd reason, which hasn't happened in months. Then on day 2, the allergies persisted so I had to go to class with tissues. Today, my allergies greatly diminished and hardly bothered me, which is great! In the past, when I would have an allergy ridden day, the only way to get over it was with a full night's rest. I was paying close to see when the allergies would go away because I hate taking a daily allergy pill. It is just such a hassle. It was nice to let it pass naturally and let my body take care of it. I am excited to see what the rest of the night brings. Last night, Manish was having a really tough time staying awake. It was his third night and he was just really suffering. Kind of delerious and all. Ty said that the difficult phase is unavoidable, so I keep expecting it to come, but it doesn't show up. Kind of strange. We'll see. I'll keep posting my updates.
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?
