Day 33 (April 9th): (2012/04/09, awake all morning, slight dip at 5pm)
health: Sore throat + sneeze.
adaptation: After about 1 month I’m surprised by how well I feel only sleeping 4h30 per day. However I’m not sure if I’ve fully adapted. I may be oscillating between catching up on sleep (oversleeping), … and then, slowly, as the week advances loosing strength. And after about a week I relapse again into an unhealthy sleep deprivation which makes me oversleep again. It may also be a coincidence of germs, lack of exercise, stress or diet. I’ll have to test this more carefully later in the experiment.
schedule: It was very easy to wake up using the “smart wake” alarm from zeo. However at noon I missed a nap due to visitors and distractions, … then caught up with full Deep sleep (very hard to wake up from it!!).
Day 34 (April 10th):
(2012/04/10, (4:00,5.5,”head heavy … eyes tired”) I wasn’t tired “on time” at 12:00 or 12:30 so I continued to work until tiredness caught up with me. I’m trying again the smart wake which may be working as I’ve found it a little easier to leave the bed. The 7am nap however made for a harder waking up as I snoozed and it led me to some light and deep sleep. The full REM however gave me all the needed energy for the following hours.
Day 35 (April 11th):
(2012/04/11, (4:00, 7)) ok all day. The smart wake let me sleep a little longer than usual at night. I also tried to take my naps when I felt I needed them.
The only problem is that the 14h nap was interrupted and for the 19h nap … I dropped the sensor so I’m not sure if I slept or not.
