Everyman sleeping schedule! I might go crazy, but that’s what life’s for


Hello, it’s me. You know, that person that said s/he would become more active and then stopped writing completely the day afterwards.
Yeah… I’m back now. I think.

I’m mainly back because I need somewhere to blog about my health under the upcoming weeks. And since I have a blog already I’m going to use it for that purpose. But I will start writing about the normal stuff I used to write about before too. (Was that normal?)

The reason I am going to write about my health is because I am going to start an experiment from tonight and two month’s forward. I will try the everyman sleeping schedule, which means sleeping for 3 hours straight and then take 20 minutes x 3 naps during the day. Instead of 3 20 minutes naps I will take one 20 minute nap and one 40 minute nap during the day, mainly because it seems to work with a work schedule much more easily.

The main reason for why I am doing this is because of my insomnia. If my body is able to adjust to my new schedule then I will be able to fall asleep much faster than my normal 1-4 hours with 2 hours at the average. If I force my body to only spend a short amount of time in bed then it should eventually get used to only sleep on those specific times…. Hopefully. If it doesn’t work out well, then I will stop it and return to lay in bed for twelve sleepless hours. (Over-exaggeration x1000)
Even if it is a success, I might still go back to a more normal sleep cycle with 6-8 hours of sleep. As I said, it’s mainly to try and get rid of my insomnia. But if I feel properly rested with only four hours of sleep and it doesn’t affect me in any bad way, then I might continue with it. Only time will tell how this will end.

The second reason I decided to do this for was because of time. I usually lie in bed for 9-12 hours and only sleep for 4-8 of those hours, both because it takes so much time for me to fall asleep and because I never feel well rested when I first wake up so I snooze for 2-4 hours before actually getting out of bed. That is time I could do so much better (or mindless) things on, so why not try a method that might give me the time I usually spend not sleeping or half sleep on?

So I will write about how this little experiment is going, how I feel, etc. The first week will apparently be a living nightmare, and I might turn into a zombie, but then it usually gets better. Though since my insomnia is a douche bag, I think it will take at least two weeks to adjust.

For the moment my schedule will be
Sleep 2Am – 5Am
Nap 11.20-11.40 (Then eat lunch)
Nap  18.20-19.00 (Dinner afterwards)

I’m also working on a work-out schedule and a list of things to do. Many people have stopped the everyman sleeping schedule because they got bored when they didn’t know what to do with their extra time, so I’ll better keep myself busy. I’m expecting the schedule to change a bit during the first month. Maybe I notice that one or three in the morning are better times to fall asleep on, and in that case I will start moving around it a bit. I might have to extend the naps to three small ones, or maybe just move them to other times.

So this will be an interesting period for me. Let’s see how horrible I will feel in the upcoming days. :3

You know what I remembered now…. We will soon turn the clock back to summer time again… Don’t know when exactly but I think it’s just a month or two away… … Which mean I will have to get adjusted to my new schedule shortly after getting adjusted to my new schedule.. … GUH! DAMN YOU SUMMER AND WINTER TIME!!!!
