How am I doing on my Goals?

So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :

1. Become FULLY polyphasic

I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.

A Discourse on Sleep

On Fluent In Life

Everyone will tell you that sleep is important. But no one "really" knows why we sleep, there are many theories of course.

Sleep is a topic that I've been interested in for quite some time now. I've even tried experimenting with my sleep, until a few weeks ago.

I've tried the Everyman polyphasic sleep schedule in 11th grade. The Everyman schedule is split into a block of core sleep, usually 3 hours and 3 power naps throughout the day, which totals to 4 hours of daily sleep. I failed miserably because I simply couldn't hack the sleep deprivation and how it made me feel. It felt as if I was a vegetable moving through the world. So I went back to mono-phasic sleep.

A year later, I decided to try it again, same story, couldn't handle the sleep deprivation.
