Like the past 2 days, I slept longer this morning but not because I wanted to but because I had to. My alarm clock, I think, was tired too. Now it was going off not once a day but 4 to 5 times! Even though I am trying to adapt to the Dymaxion schedule, I think it’s too hard for my body and mind. Unknowningly, I am following the Everyman schedule instead. (Comparison of Sleep Patterns). I should give my body it’s own time to adjust and not put it in a state of shock. Once I am well adjusted in the Everyman schedule, I will slowly start decreasing the time of the large chunk of sleep till I can hit Dymaxion schedule.
Apart from this dilemma, the rest of the day was fine. I noticed that I had increased concentration after short naps but had lower than normal concentration by the end of 4-5 hours of a nap. If the nap lasted more than 40 minutes, then it wasn’t as pleasant after waking up. I felt like sleeping more then but if I restricted the nap to less than 40 minutes then no such need was felt. Today I slept from 12.15 pm to 12.50 pm and 7.15 pm to 7.40 pm.
