      Thumbs up Espsika Going Polyphasic

      Hello friends, i'm
      back to
      polyphasic
      sleeping schedule
      again. This time,
      i'm starting with Dymaxion.
      1AM and 1PM,
      7AM and 7PM is
      my sleep time, 30
      minutes each
      time.
      this will be the second time i'm trying to change my sleeping pattern.
      In my first try i came up with several rules that will guide me to success.

      From my
      mistakes I came up with these rules:
      • I must not lie
      down or lean
      against anything
      • I must live in
      the now by being patient with
      myself
      • I must
      recognize my
      efforts and be
      grateful for them • I must motivate
      myself while
      walking around
      whenever I feel
      sleepy
      • I must be busy doing something
      (except reading
      books)
      • I must not obey
      my feelings
      (tiredness and sickness) and
      thoughts that
      stems from them,
      they are servants
      and my will of
      becoming a polyphaser is the
      master. Oh God
      forgive me if I am
      committing
      suicide, Amen.

      This is my third day. My first and second day was a total failure because i disobeyed the above mentioned laws.
      I have to remind myself these laws everyday in order to observe them.

      Hello espsika! Thanks for making this thread! Have you done polyphasic before?

      I was always a dreamer, in childhood especially. People thought I was a little strange.-Charley pride

      That sounds like a fairly rigorous routine.

      What results are you expecting? What is your goal?

      4th day has passed without success, except that i succeeded in sleeping less. And i'm reminded of my past experiences; my forehead feels funny, a kind of discomfort. During the day, i doze off (for some minutes) while being busy doing something. The desire to sleep at night is very strong that it makes your sense of reasoning so low which makes you do things without knowing.

      I expect to adapt to the sleeping pattern, which is Dymaxion.
      My goal is having more vivid dreams, which will be the starting point of other ultimate goals

      Arrow

      Trying to become a dymaxion also reminds me of who i am;
      i'm a person that lacks self determination.
      I take things for granted.
      I live on assumption.
      I find it difficult using my will-power.
      And i lack self discipline.
      To succeed, i have to get rid of the bad qualities mentioned above.

      I had to look up the information about the Dymaxion Sleep Schedule. That's some intense effort.

      I used to manage something similar when I was working two full-time jobs, one of which was at night. In between I still had to take care of a family.

      The only time I really rested was part of Saturday morning and Saturday night.

      This other guy had some interesting success in his efforts. It might be good to read through his thread if you haven't already.

      After going through the forum posts on "Starting the
      Dymaxion Sleep
      Schedule", with personal experiences i'm starting all over again today being Saturday.
      With little adjustments on Dymaxion cycle.
      1AM, 3AM, 5AM, and 1PM,
      7AM and 7PM is
      my sleep time, 30
      minutes each
      time, for a week after which i switch back to proper Dymaxion.
      I start from 7PM.

      Monday, 9th.
      I over slept. 12:06am - 2:54am. I was tired and could not control the desire to lay down. The thought "let me just rest a little" deceived me. I'm very sad now. . .

      I'm making a little adjustment to solve this problem of over sleeping.
      Sleeping time: 01:00, 04:00, 07:00, 13:00, 19:00, and 22:00 for a week. My target is: 01:00, 07:00, 13:00, 19:00. I'm lark, i find it difficult. staying at night.
      I have a week left to give this another try, i pray i succeed this time. Amen.

      Tuesday, 10th.
      01:00 nap was normal.
      04:00, 07:00, 13:00 naps were very light and quick, it was as if i never had them.
      At 19:00 i laid down and waited for sleep to come but it didn't. So, i woke up and looked forward to 22:00 nap.
      22:00 nap was quick and tangible.

      Wednesday, 11th.
      01:00 - over slept, 01:00 - 02:10. After switching off the alarm at 01:30, i kind of rested on the bed and looked at my watch it was 02:10. I DRIFTED off to sleep without knowing.
      04:00 - over slept, 04- 05:40. After switching off the alarm at 04:30, my mind searched for a reason to go back to bed. It did found, i laid back and the next thing, i looked at my watch it was 05:40. I DRIFTED off again without knowing.
      At 07:00 light sleep, like i didn't have one.
      13:00 was not good. I was disturbed, i shifted it to 14:45 (was a success).
      At 19:00 (was a success). 22:00 nap - over slept, 22:00 - 23:18. After switching off the alarm at 22:30, and the next thing i know, its 23:18. I DRIFTED off to sleep without knowing.
      My mind always looks for a reason to remain in bed.
      So, i slept for 5hrs 48min. instead of 3hrs.

      Friday, 13th.
      Today was a mess.
      23:54 - 03:00 - i over slept. I was so weak and tired that the urge to sleep was greater than the WILL to stay awake. I was sad and discouraged so i skipped most of the naps. From this experience, i'm coming up with affirmation and a rule:
      "when i'm weak and sleepy, i'm careful and strong".
      I must not nap while laying down (seat-to-nap) at night.
      I have three days left.

      I over slept at 13:00, for 59min. and 22:00, for 58min. (never had the alarm going off) I skipped naping at 19:00, i was too busy.
      So, i slept for 3.5hrs instead of 3hrs. I'm improving, friends.

      Sunday, 15th.
      00:45 - 02:00, over slept.
      04:40 - 05:35, over slept
      skipped others naps except 19:00.
      Sleep comes and takes away my consciousness without my knowing it, before i know what's happening some huge amount of time has passed. The urge to sleep seems to be stronger than my WILL-Power

      Monday, 16th.
      I started struggling with sleep around 22:30 or thereabout and decided to go to bed around 23:15, (after napping for 20min.) found myself awake around 01:45. I have just slept for 2.5hrs already when my target is 2hrs in a day.
