So I’m getting ready to start my Polyphasic sleep experiment and I’ve decided to give some of my thoughts regarding it.
Firstly I’m very excited to be trying to improve myself, after all, don’t we all want to be better than we are. Though I must confess to some trepidation. I’m nervous that sleep deprivations will become too much for me, that it will cause my anxiety and depression issues to flare up or that I’ll ‘lose touch’ with reality. With help from my partner I have developed a OBS sheet of sorts. A list of daily questions that both myself and my partner will answer to get an idea of the strains and general effects of shifting to a Polyphasic sleep pattern. (The schedule and details regarding to the data I’m collected will be explained in a later post.)
For now all I can say is that I’ve looking forward to the extra time I’ll have to prepare for my daughters birth and to get on with some other projects I’ve been meaning to find time to do.
