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.
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.
Some very good feedback and comments from last week on Continual Readjustment — thanks for that, it's very good to see how the work here is actually being read, interpreted and used. Please do keep the good comments coming, especially about how you're putting things into practice.
The first thing you'll note this week is that the Continual Readjustment thing worked just fine; the weakest link of Declare/Complete being at 0 moved to 3 this week, which was good enough to get going.
Now, let's talk about another usage of this type of control:
