Day 4.


I totally regret oversleeping yesterday, This is so hard! And because of the oversleep yesterday it will take more time for my body to adjust. It's like starting all over again ... (DAMN!) It's all about willpower.

At least i felt better yesterday, than every day except day one. Well, generally better, because my body is less susceptible to food now, and if this doesn't stop there's a reason to worry. I've always been the type of guy who eats pretty much, and I'm not a finicky eater. The worst problem is that I am hungry yet I don't want food. I just hope this problem stops, and I'm going to eat properly.
Another effect I've noticed so far is a huge lack of concentration. This is critical as I must read for my theory
test (MC) the upcoming week.

Time for an update! Today have been a very bumpy road. In the beginning of the day was i totally smashed, unlike the afternoon, where I felt much better. Now, after the 20 minute nap am I tired. I really hope theese naps start to work soon, because what happens now is: I lie down, turn on my alarm, trying to sleep, but jest before I fall asleep goes the alarm. Ugh, what to do? I tried to read a bit before the clock hit 15:00, but it was of no use.
In my 4,5 hours core sleep i have began to have pretty wierd dreams, and nightmares have occured. But at least I can remember much more of my dreams than before! Maybe this is because I prehaps have more dreams? And remember some in particular? Anyway, whaterver this comes of, I really hope it last, because I nearly didn't remember a single dream before, now do I remember 1-2 dreams from each night!
A important detail in my life, which I've forgot to bring to this site: app development. I've made a little draft of a game, where main goal is to survive as long as possible. If you want to survive, do you have to jump on the incoming objects. I usually get about 20 seconds each round as average, but now is the average about 10-15 seconds.


Day 3.

"Damn!" was the only though in my head as i heard the doorbell, as i was lying in my bed. The clock was way over 11:00! Disaster! I can't even remember turning off the alarm ...

Well, there isn't so much to do about this, so I'll got to start over. The clock is about to hit 15:00, so i need to have a 20 minute nap! I'll be back for an update after the nap.

It was a tragedy, but I must reind myself that "Hey man, this is what you want! Do not let your tiredness impact your judgement!"
What I'm saying is that I wont give up untill I've adjusted to the sleep schedule.

Day 1.

Note: The blog have changed the order of my posts, for a reason I can't explain, and then the Day 2 post is moved all the way down to the bottom of this blog.

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. 
My whole house is totally clean now, and i have a lot of spare time. I really love this site, and I'm learning HTML, fast! It's so much fun, and my ambitions is to learn Javascript, which I can add to this page.

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!


Day 2.



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 ...

Maybe I should buy one of theese?



I'm unable get any sleep during the naps, and it really begins to piss me off. I reacon that I care less about people, including myself. I guess this effect is because of the lack of REM sleep, and I'm constant tired. Today have been hell of a day, and my eyes hurt. I'm definitly looking forvard to the moment my body have adjusted.

Theese effects I'm writing about is not a problem for the moment, but I'm afraid that it might be if I can't get the REM sleep soon.
