Core 1 | 10:30 PM – 2:00 AM
Core 2 | 6:00 AM – 7:30 AM
Nap 1 | 2:15 PM – 2:35 PM
Even though I haven’t checked in on this blog in a little while, I’ve been really enjoying Dual Core 1 polyphasic sleep! This was the first time on polyphasic sleep that I really found a rhythm that wasn’t difficult to keep up. On Everyman, it was really hard to get out of bed about half the time (the other half I jumped right up). But on DC1 I’d say it was only really hard to get up about 10-15% of the time. Typically, these difficulties were tied to my inconsistency, like a really late nap or having a few drinks before bed.
If you’re enjoying it so much, why are you stopping DC1 you ask?
A few reasons:
- I have a week long trip to Yellowstone coming up in 1 month that I’m really excited for! I’ve learned it’s hard to keep polyphasic on vacations spent with a lot of other people…
- I’m picking up my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training and I want to gain about 5 pounds of muscle & boost my strength before I go on the trip. It’s hard to lift heavy and gain muscle on polyphasic
- Honestly, after almost 6 months of sleeping polyphasic, I’m tired of napping and always being conscious of time and when my next nap needs to be. I just want a break.
I’ll circle back in a couple weeks of sleeping monophasic again and report back! I think in a couple months I’ll jump back on the polyphasic train and I’d still love to create the polyphasic adaptation guide! I wish I had one when I was first starting…
Thanks for always following along and being supportive!
