Everyman Phase Two: Day 7

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-4am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.

Today marks the beginning of the next segment of Phase Two, reducing my core sleep to 6 hours:

I woke up from my core a bit easier than anticipated.  Note, that's not to say it was easy waking up (I wish!), but I lingered in bed for just a couple minutes before hopping out.  I didn't feel overly tired at first, either, but when it was time for my first nap, I was ready to jump in bed.  I noticed that a cold bed seems to require a few minutes to warm up before I can actually get comfortable enough to sleep.  About halfway through I felt my consciousness drop, though, so I figure I got something good out of it.

My second nap was less restful; I think I'll have to start sleeping on my side (or at least at an angle).  Directly on my back sometimes lets my jaw drop open, which has the tendency of either waking me up, or keeping me awake by trying to keep my mouth shut.  Weird, I know.
Third nap was great.  I laid on my side, and feel asleep a few minutes after laying down.  It felt like I slept for an hour - for only 20 minutes of actual time, not too shabby!  Now if only I could make all my naps like this....

My vitals as usual.  I'm going to have to start making some pretty graphs out of this data soon.
