This is part six of my Triphasic sleep experiment. Please visit this page for more info.
Having people over severally screwed this experiment up. It is very important to stick with the schedule as I later discovered. Any delay in sleep time, makes the next period of wakefulness that much shorter and it’s the excuse I use for myself to stay in bed and just sleep on. What’s the point of being awake only 2 hours or 3 hours?
I am going to keep the light on when I sleep now so it feels more like day light when I wake up. Hopefully, this weekend will provide some leeway in adjusting to the new working schedule now that I have some experience of what it was like.
Will I still be able to have a social life with this sleep pattern? I can already imagine a scenario at my friend’s house in the middle of a dinner:
“Yo bro, do you have a bed I can crash at right now? I am sorry, but this meal taste like mud because all my senses are shutting down.”
or at a party
“Dudes, get out of the bed NOW! Yes I am interrupting your fuck session and NO, I don’t care, I just need a bed to sleep. NO, I don’t mind you fucking beside me while I try to sleep.”
