Biphasic Sleep : Day 4


Biphasic sleep : Day 4Back on track. I only allowed 15 minutes to fall asleep last night, and woke up feeling well rested after the scheduled 3 hours' sleep. Eating still feels like the thing to do, and as the longest period I'm asleep is only 3 hours I don't feel as though I'm ever missing a meal. The rapidly-becoming-norm is to have a protein shake upon rising, followed by the usual breakfast about half an hour later.

Following nap

Wow. That was the heaviest nap so far - usually when the alarm goes off after 90 minutes I'm pretty close to waking anyway, and it doesn't come as much of a surprise. This evening, however, it was more a case of 'Where am I? What's that strange noise?'. So it seems that a nap can include some deep sleep (I've had my doubts in the past).
