Everyday man sleeping schedule day 1…. AGAIN


After a 3 weeks or so hiatus, I am back on doing the everyday man sleeping schedule. The reason I took a break? …. The znoozbutton and I were very fond of each other.

After a little over a week I had gone back to nine to twelve hours of sleep, and I znoozed for six to nine hours PER DAY! Then I caught a cold so a figured it’s better to just drop it until I’m healthy again and start right over.

Yesterday I did go to bed slightly early, 2 instead of half past 2. I put my phone (which is my alarm) on the other end of the room so I would have to leave my bed. Then I slept for around 3,5-4 hours. I’m not completely certain if it took me half an hour or just some minutes to fall asleep, I don’t remember anything. And I’m cold as hell, which I of some reason get when I’m up early in the morning.

Just as last time when I started this off, I don’t feel sleep deprived this first day, though I am a little bit cold and my body (especially my hands)  feels slightly dry (or maybe swollen).

I must remember to take my naps on time, as I did tend to forget it during the last days when I started to sleep in more. I noticed that I had missed one nap with fifteen minutes and I were like “Naah, I’ll just skip this one and take a longer one later.” And then that later one became the same thing, and so on.

This time I need more discipline on myself. At least I have gotten up from the bed in time, even though my brain was screaming ZNOOOOOZ!!!
Drank a glass of ice cold water and now I’m sitting here with some juice. I hate juice. It doesn’t taste bad, nor does it taste very good, and it makes my whole body shiver when I drink it. Which makes it the perfect wake up drink.

Now I shall go and terrorize my friends with “YAY I WOKE UP IN TIME” texts and hopefully I wake someone up. I just feel like being annoying to someone :3 (Probably won’t do it though, would feel too embarrassing)

Everyman Sleeping Schedule Day 3: An open letter to my brain


I don’t know how to say this nicely, but you can’t continue like this. I understand that you think you have something special with S, but she’s just using you. You must leave her before it’s too late. You’re my friend, I care about you, and I don’t want to see you hurt. So please, break up with the snooz-button before it’s too late, for both our sake. 

With love, from your friend and body, Alec

So yeah.
My brain decided to snooz for one and a half hour this morning. I vaguely remember waking up, sitting up and…. Nope that’s all i remember, I don’t even remember turning of the alarm or laying back down again. *Sigh*
I could accept four hours, but four and a half is to step over some kind of invincible, magical, fictional line… WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT?

Either way, I seem to have developed an unhealthy snoozing habit the last couple of years, so I need to try and get out of that. I am not going to quit yet, I just need to have some extra time to get used to getting up immediately when I wake up.

The naps are going good at least. I’m not sleeping during them yet, but at least my body feel really relaxed and I can feel the start of falling asleep. But there is a bit to go before I will be able to sleep properly during them.

And i forgot the water bottle again. *Hits myself*. I was incredibly tired already from midnight, so when the time came to go to sleep, I had already turned into a zombie and just thought “beeeeeed”. I’LL DO BETTER TONIGHT… I hope :3

Everyman Sleeping Schedule Day 2: Rearranging


And once again I overslept. This time was a bit over one hour, plus I spent an extra hour in bed without sleeping. *Sigh* Who would have thought that this would be so hard for someone that is used to snoozing for four hours in a row?

Oh well, it seems like I am better at waking up at six in the morning than five, so now I will do the first drastic change to my schedule.

Schedule before:
02.00-05.00 Sleep
11.00-11.20 Nap
18.00-18.40 Nap

New schedule:
03.00-06.00 Sleep
11.00-11.20 Nap
18.00-18.20 Nap
23.00-23.20 Nap

So now I put on an extra nap and made the other nap a bit shorter. The hardest part now will probably be to stay awake until three in the morning. Even though I usually do it easily, the last few days have been hard just getting to two am. But I think the later evening nap will help with that (even though I probably still have some days to go before I actually fall asleep during the naps)

And I totally forgot to bring the water bottle with me to bed. Stupid! *Hits myself* I’ll definitely remember it tonight. I hope.

Day two and I’m still not feeling awfully tired. Though I have been sleeping slightly more than I should. On the other hand, I didn’t sleep during the naps, so technically I have slept the right amount of hours haha. Anyway, I promise, I will stop clicking the snoozbutton, I will bring water to my bed and I will not forget my naps. Which almost happened yesterday when I watched an anime and suddenly remembered that I had to check the clock. It was 2 minutes past six. Damn I’m lucky.

And that was the update for today. Even though it seems like I’m useless and just oversleeps, this is still going  much better than expected. I expected to oversleep with five hours for a week or so before I started to get into it haha. (Like I did during Monday)

Bye bye now 🙂

Everyman sleeping schedule Day 1


So as I said some days ago, I have now started with the Everyman sleeping schedule. I were supposed to start with it yesterday, but I turned off the alarm, laid down again and thought “I can just close my eyes for five more minutes”, and whoops, five hours passed by before I woke up again. Smooth!

Today it went better. I did fall asleep again, but only for an hour extra. So instead of three hours I slept for four hours. I have taken my first nap some hours ago, even though I couldn’t fall asleep at all. Which was weird cause I always fall asleep when I have a headache, and I have had a headache for two days now. I think it might be because I was awake for over 40 hours straight and then slept 7 hours on Sunday, 7 hours Monday and now I only slept four. So my body might be a bit sleep deprived. I’ll make sure to drink lots of water and hopefully this first week won’t be completely horrible.

This first day has been decent. I’m not feeling completely brain dead, though I do feel slightly tired. But not much worse from when I get eight to twelve hours of sleep. They say that the first day is pretty easy, and then things goes to shit during the last days of the first week.

Falling asleep haven’t been as hard as I thought it would be, usually I fall asleep first after 2-3 hours after I have gone to bed. But during the last two days I have actually fallen asleep during the first half hour. Probably because I’m not fully recovered after my 40 hours staying awake marathon.

So that was the update of the day. I have spent one night with the everyman sleeping schedule, I overslept with an hour, I’m feeling a bit tired but nothing severe so far, and things seems to be going fine.

I’m thinking about putting a bottle of water in my bed for tomorrow morning so that when I wake up I can drink it and maybe it will help me to get out of bed.

And that was all for today. See you tomorrow! Hopefully I won’t fall asleep on the keyboard. 😉
