>>35485343 Here is my sleep cycle now: Core sleep (3hr): 3:00am - 6:00am Nap 1 (20min): 12:00 - 12:20 Nap 2 (20min): 6:30 - 6:50 Total sleep: 3hr 40min Total waking time: 21hr 20min Extra awake time per week vs. monophasic cycle: 29hr 40min
If you really want to start a doing polycyclic sleep you will need a good reason. Ask yourself why do I want to sleep less, why do I want more hours in my day, and what will I do with my new time? Make sure you have a massive to-do list to complete while you're awake. Transitioning into a polycyclic cycle will be rough at first do not just right into a poly cycle over night. Train your body to sleep less over a two week period. If you train your body there is less chance of you hurting yourself (eg. driving, working out, etc.). Polycyclic sleep is considered sleep deprivation.
Here is what I recommend, have atleast a couple days off work before trying polycyclic sleep. Determine the best poly cycle to fit your daily routine. Use the following two week exercise to ease your body into everyman 3.
Week 1 Day 1 - 3: Reduce core sleep by 3hr only sleeping 5 hours Day 4-7: Reduce core sleep by one hour (4hr total) and take two naps of 30min (1hr total nap) Total sleep per day (5hr) You will feel exhausted on day 7 asses your energy level
Week 2 Day 8 - 10: Reduce core sleep by 30min (3.5hr) 3 naps of 20min (1hr) Total sleep (4.5hr) Day11 - 14: Reduce your core sleep by 30min (3hr) 3 naps of 20min (1hr) Total sleep (4hr)
Tips Caffine: don't drink caffinated beverage 2hrs before naps or core sleep. Caffine will keep you awake. Magnesium: Take magnesium 20min prior to core sleep or nap if you're having a tough time sleeping during the day hours Massive to do list Eat Healthy Don't read: Try to have a low reading diet during your 2 week transition. Reading will lull you to sleep No Masturdation: during transition i reccomend avouiding masturbation if you really want to masturbate/ have sex do it right before you sleep.
Really? I would have thought the one based on light (sleep 5 hours, wake up naturally, sleep another 3 hours) would have aided recovery because it's what we've done since before the lightbulb was invented
>>35485733 Never sleep fore more then scheduled: If you sleep more then scheduled you will feel grogy and might not be tired for your next nap Sleeping a little less then scheduled is all right Discuss with your doctor the use of melatonin to help sleep Keep working out: fitness is still important but, be careful during your 2 week transition
After each nap I feel as if I have a full nights rest I am full of energy and focus. I really enjoy the Everyman 2 and I will continue this poly sleep cycle.
>>35487372 I have two jobs with different schedules one is swing shift (3pm - 12am) and the other (7am - 4:30pm). I switched to Everyman 2 because, the conflicting work schedules were draining and left me without time for my passions. Being an A type personality I needed more, I needed to optimize my schedule to get more out of life.
