Day 28 | Feeling Good! Adrenaline Helps

Core | 11:30 PM – 3:00 AM

Nap 1 | 6:20 AM – 7:00 AM

Nap 2 | 9:00 AM – 9:20 AM

Nap 3 | 6:00 PM – 6:20 PM

I felt awesome today! Napped easily, got up without much trouble, and had good energy and alertness all day.

Adrenaline certainly played a role in how my day turned out as Amanda and I toured over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and back on a tandem bike. The tandem was rented and extremely ghetto. We had an amazing time and I was completely sharp and safe the entire day… mostly.

Around 4:30 PM I started to get groggy and felt like taking a nap (right on time!) but we were still across town watching the end of an NFL playoff game that caught our attention. In the 1.5 hours until I could actually take a nap I was slow moving, but that’s to be expected. Improving on how tightly I stick to my schedule is critical.

Feel Better – Sleep Less

If you need to squeeze more time out of your days, feel sluggish when you wake up, or just like self-experiments – you’ve come to the right place.

Sustainable polyphasic sleep cycles can cut your sleep time in half while making you feel more energized, creative and driven. Sounds crazy right? Simply put, it works by breaking up your sleep into multiple segments per day (yay for naps!) which increases how efficiently your body uses sleep time.

My goal is to wrap up the important things I’ve learned researching and living polyphasic to help you transition to a happier and more productive you.

Get started by reading my adaptation sleep journal and checking out the resources I couldn’t have done it without! Plus much more coming soon. Comment or shoot me an email if there is something that you’d like to see on the blog or if I can help out.
