I can certainly see why Steve Pavlina set aside so much time to dedicate to adjusting to polyphasic sleep, and how his job and life flexibility helped him so much. I was going to try and start full fledged polyphasic sleep Monday, but my mother-in-law got sick and needed to go to the doctor, and it was a stressful couple of days and I didn\’t get to space out my naps. Then because of the day I missed at work, I had to work extra hours, which threw off my schedule even more. I decided to try and preserve my ability to nap even if I couldn\’t afford to go through the adjustment, so I kept taking most of my naps (two on the train, one during lunch, and one at around 9:30pm) and then slept from 1am to 6:30am and got ready for work. I\’ve done this for the last few days and its working ok. I get a few extra hours of sleep and hopefully I\’ll be able to make the adjustment this weekend to full blown polyphasic sleep. I\’m going to try it tonight so I can go swim laps at the YMCA at 5am tomorrow. I\’m going to try taking the 1am nap on the couch, so it\’ll be easier to get up instead of just turning off the alarm for a few more hours 🙂.
