Quick Dymaxion sleep update
The picture pretty much sums it up. My biggest problem was that I can't get to sleep in under an hour - sometimes as long as four hours. I did manage to get to two two-hour sessions, which was actually pretty nice, but caused concentration problems.
The first day, I thought I would gracefully slip into the rhythm - sleep like 'normal' and then when I get tired, take a 30 minute nap to begin the new schedule. No dice. The biggest problem? Setting an alarm. Every time I tried to take a nap, the alarm would sound within 15 minutes of when I actually fell to sleep. I set the alarm for later, and ended up with a mixture of 1 and 2 hour naps. It was a total mess. I might try 2x1hour naps this week and see if that works out better.
Anyhow, I'm inspired to mess with this more, so we'll see where it goes.
