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 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. 😉

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!!!!
