This is part four of my Triphasic sleep experiment. Please visit this page for more info.
Working under this condition is brutal. I have a hard time staying awake after 2PM. The downside to this sleep pattern is that it is a shortened version of a monophasic sleep. Every day, I have to struggle with getting out of bed 3 times, trying to stay awake to finish a few tasks before I go to bed 3 times, feel extremely refreshed after I wake up 3 times and crave for coffee 3 times.
The night out with friends didn’t help as it completely screwed up my schedule which probably explains why I hit a big wall near the end of my workday. It shouldn’t be a problem except, I still have to drive home and collapse on my bed without getting into any car accident. The only downside so far. Maybe if I tweak the sleeping hours a bit, it might help.
The benefit of this is already paying itself off. The extra time allowed me to master the first song in guitar hero at the expert level after only 2 days of practice. My curtain is half done and my fridge is overstuffed with food. I feel that 80% of the time, my mind is in a heightened state of alertness.
