Ugh. I did not want to wake up this morning, although I still sprung out of bed fairly quickly. Still felt pretty tired for a good bit after I got up; previously this had dissipated much faster. I imagine there's a sliding scale, whereby in the beginning of Phase Two my body is still able to compensate and hasn't yet truly altered it's real sleeping cycle, and closer to the end (or perhaps in Phase Three entirely) whereby my body finally decompensates and thus finally adjusts my sleep cycle. If this is true, I surmise I may be at the beginning of my body's decompensation (which is not scary in this context and actually needed to return to return to restorative sleep).
I was actually able to dream during my first nap of the day, which I count as progress, since my first nap has previously been fairly light in nature. Due to some not-unexpected but also not-avoidable busyness at work, however, my timing for the second and third naps were thrown off, on the order of three hours. This is certainly not good for adaptation purposes - perhaps unsurprisingly, those naps were both very light, although nonetheless felt restorative in some capacity, which continues to amaze me. I don't experience any drop in consciousness or recall any dreams, yet even after such light naps I don't feel quite as tired and usually get a small bit of energy too. Interesting.
