Everyman Phase Three: Day 27

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-1am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.

Meh, that 4am-6am is still quite annoying. I was able to have a pretty good day today, except for the fact that I had a brief twenty minute or so snooze a little bit before the first nap of the day.  This was mainly the result of finding it difficult to comfortably sit at my office chair, the less-than-fully-interesting task of studying from my textbook, and finding it quite comfortable and cozy to lay on the floor with a blanket.  In short, I didn't stand much of a chance with that setup.

Instead, what I should have done was to resolve to uncomfortable seating by heading to the couch - at least that would've kept me upright.  Second would be to force myself to do an activity more engaging that textbook reading; namely, videogames or the like (which when you're feeling sleepy, yes you do have to force yourself to play a bit).

It's all about how you manage your sleepiness cues and signals, and while I am learning, you really have to commit yourself to finding a way to respond to the sleepiness cues that don't put you in a compromising position.  I figure I have five more days until I reach the Day 60 marker since I began my journey here, and if I can make it and properly fend off the tiredness cues, I may be able to consider myself adapted.  We shall see!

Updated vitals here.
