BTW: I've updated the calendar.
I've figured that I will take my naps more spread! Since there isn't any handball trainings during the summer, will I move the second nap to 21.00-21.20 instead. This will be a really small post.
BTW: I've updated the calendar.
I've been offline for quite a time now. In the meantime I've celebrated my birthday, and I got a really cool MC-outfit (jeans):
...And in a few days, I'll get my hard-earned money and buy theese boots, I'm excited!
I've also attended to Partille-cup, worlds biggest handball cup. A week full of fun, even though we lost every match ... Well, there is at least a lot of beautiful and sexy girls there!
And now, finally on topic:
I've been so little motivated to do ANYTHING at all the few last days, I haven't done anything at all. Just sitting, staring into the TV screen. Suddenly i woke up to reality, and came to a realisation: "Damn. What a lifestyle this is! This sucks ... I've got to do something!" And then I suddenly remembered this page/blog, and thought of the uberman sleep schedule again! It was a little "Yay" -moment for me. This also means that I'm going to keep updating this page again, starting at day ONE, starting today.
My training will start at Monday, when I'm at my fathers house. (My parents are divorced).
Today have been a day of eternity. So much spare time! I heard my sister walk out the door as the clock hit 07:00, and my alarm started ringing. Somehow, i felt amazingly rested. It might have something with the 6 hours of sleep (15:00-21:00) the day before ... That "nap" made me take the decition to go for the Everyman 2-nap schedule.
I will organize my mental state and physical state from a scale from 0-10.
As promised, I was going to tell you a little blit about theese sleep schedules.
The Everyman 2-Nap sleep schedule is a way to drastically reduce sleeping hours, and even feel more rested day in and day out.
Stop talking bullshit!
You may think this is absurd, and would never work. Well, then I am here to tell you the truth: it's true! It's all about routines. You are setting up a mentally alarm clock in your head, and tell yourself when to sleep. In the process you need to be very disciplined, and hold on to the schedule. If you succeed, you will feel more rested and have a lot of spare time!
How does this work?
As i mentioned earlier: Its all about routines. You adjust your mind to sleep optimally when you are sleeping. The Uberman sleep schedule is probably the hardest one to complete, because there is no core sleep. It's just 20-30 minutes nap, six times a day. The reason why this works is because when you sleep, you have REM sleep. It's the REM sleep that helps organising your mind, and makes you feel less tired when you wake up. When you sleep maybe 8-9 hours in a row, you have little REM sleep, and a lot of waste sleep. In the schedule, your goal is to optimize the REM sleep.
The Everyman 2-Nap sleep schedule:
Since I'm a student, and don't have any chance of going into a 20 minute nap during schoolday, i decided that Uberman was not for me. Instead, i found the Everyman 2-Nap schedule, which i found perfect for my needs. In this sleep schedule there is just two naps a day (20 minutes each), and one core sleep of 4,5 hours.
My latest school day is to 14:40 (2:20PM), so i decided to have a nap 15:00 (3:00PM) and 18:00 (6:00PM), and the core sleep from 02:30 (02:30AM) to 07:00 (07:00AM). In this schedule i will sleep for a total of 5 hours and 10 minutes.
Naps: 15:00-15:20, 18:00-18:20 (40 minutes)
Core sleep: 02:30-07:00 (4 hours and 30 minutes)
So, my very first post then. This has been a very bumpy-road day. First of all, i had a FRENCH oral exam today, which went straight to hell. I passed with the grade 2+, on a scale where 6 represents the best grade, and 1 is a complete failure. My subject was Paris. I thought I really was going to get a better grade than 2, untill i noticed i was 15 minutes too late (because the computer system sucks at my school), so my presentation didn't last for too long ... (what an idiot I am!)
Well, enough of that french bullshit, and lets talk about the great thing that happened today instead! When i came home, i was exhausted, so i lay down in a very confortable position on the couch, and fell immediately asleep. I woke up a few hours later thinking "Aww, what the hell?" being all wet of sweat. Then i though "there must be a way to avoid this tiredness everyday i come home from school!"
I started some researching on how I could rest optimally, and of course i ran into "Uberman Sleep Schedule". (I'll get down in details about that tomorrow, because I'm about to go to sleep now.) I understood that it was too unfitting for me, since I'm a student, and can't take a 20 minute nap during my schoolday, so i decided to choose a milder pattern: The Everyman 2-Nap.
I'll explain how this works tomorrow, as I really need to go to bed now. Good night, sleep tight!
Today was a pain in the ass to wake up. I was very close of falling asleep again, so I got to change my methods: If I turn the volume of the alarm twice as high, and prehaps place the alarm so I accually have to get out of bed to turn it off. I've done this method before, and it works like a charm (but I really hate when I hear the sound of the alarm).
I was waking up with this slight headache. I think that may be because I was up so late yeasterday AND today, and my body haven't adjusted yet ...
