I’ve been doing really well holding my schedule and feeling good over the last few days. I’m hitting a routine and I don’t have to think about it much.
However, I’ve also been very busy. Not just time busy, but also ‘mentally busy’ with lots to think about and decisions to make at work. I’ve always had trouble quieting my mind when it’s time to go to bed and lately has been no different. Typically on polyphasic sleep I have been efficient about getting to sleep (due to both routine, adaption, and tiredness), but over the last couple days getting good sleep in naps has become more difficult.
I didn’t feel any negative effects of this until last night when I was pretty tired and grumpy after I woke up from my third nap (which was late too). Things should be slowing down a bit once I get through this week for me, but it’s definitely something to keep my eye on.
