Nap 3 | 4:20 PM – 4:40 PM
I overslept during my first nap. The main reason for the oversleep is that I was charging my pebble, so I didn’t have that crazy wrist vibration to help wake me up. This second round of everyman, my most common oversleep has been oversleeping my first nap. Days I oversleep this nap I honestly feel really good – maybe even better than when I wake up on track.
I didn’t follow my own advice and skipped my second nap due to my oversleep. In general, even if you oversleep it’s a good idea to stick to laying down for naps as scheduled to stay on track and have the oversleep make minimal impact on your schedule.
It’s been bouncing around my brain lately whether or not a dual core sleep pattern would feel more natural to me. The main reasons I continue to sleep polyphasic are 1) I feel better and 2) I have more quiet time to focus and get work done. My body almost seems to be natural transitioning into a DC1 schedule – I may give it a shot soon.
If you have experience with dual core sleep or even better DC1 after Everyman, I’d love to hear from you!
