Core | 11:00 AM – 2:30 AM
Nap 1 | 5:00 AM – 5:40 AM
Nap 2 | skipped
Nap 3 | 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
It’s way too early to be skipping a nap and moving sleep around! I think I may have messed up already. I had an important opportunity come up that threw my day out of whack. I had to be out of the house early, so I moved my first nap earlier and I went to bed as soon as I was free, but that was over 10 hours of awake time. I felt it.
After about noon, I wasn’t as mentally sharp and wanted to sleep pretty badly. This is a bad thing to do! Don’t move sleep around this early in adaptation… if only I listened to my own advice.
Playing catch up
Anytime you’re awake for more than 6 hours on Everyman it is harder to get to a good state after 1 nap. My recommendation from several resources is that it takes about 1.5 hours of sleep to act as two naps. So, it takes 90 minutes instead of the original 40 minutes (Two 20 minute naps). Still, after 1.5 hours you won’t feel as good as if you had taken two 20 minute naps. I tried to sleep for 1.5 hours on my third nap, but I woke up after 60 minutes and was wide awake.
I was tired by 9PM, which is too early!
