Day 32.4

Hi there,

Firstly, I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. As awkward as that might sound, I've been thinking of doing so for a couple days now but didn't find the time... Since I'm back at school, I've spent a quite some time working and the rest of it wandering on the Internet.

Anyways, as I said in my previous post, the schedule during vacation is difficult to support. The biggest problem is finding things to do, and even then you must find the motivation to do them.

Another problem I encountered during vacation is that I organized two parties in a row (the 31st and the 1st). In addition, the day before a good friend arrived and, as most people, she isn't on Everyman. Long story short, from the 30th to the 1st, I didn't have time to take naps. To compensate, I woke up at around 10a.m. (after going to bed at around 4:30) the 1st and the 2nd.

Needless to say, I was tired after that three-day episode! So the two next days I tried to have a full night sleep to recuperate, and that not possible. Anyways, I continued Everyman and decided to do a quick "reboot" from Saturday to Sunday: I slept (or tried to at least) from 6 p.m. to 10 a.m. I felt better afterwards and since then, it's been much easier to stay on Everyman.

To recap, I'm still on everyman as before (the only difference is that I'm doing a full 4 hour core sleep) and I'm perfectly healthy (actually maybe even more then before) and feel very awake.

Time to sleep, see you around!

Day 25.3 Ehau: Back on Everyman

I didn't post here during quite a long time so I will sum up quickly what happened during the last 10 days :

Day 14 to 18: I continued Everyman but I had difficulties to do the naps at the right time and to sleep during the naps.

Day 19 to 25: I was with some friends during 4 days around the new year party and it was quite difficult to stick to Everyman since they weren't doing the experiment. So after 2 days I decided to switch to a biphasic sleep (a 6h night and a 30 min nap) which is easier to organize and I have maintain it even after these holidays.

Day 26: Since the holidays were over, I decided to restart Everyman but before I did a "reboot" which mean a long night. So I slept 10 hours that night but I woke up every 3h because I think my body lost the habit of doing long nights.

Day 27: We decided with Chris to adapt a bit Everyman to make it a bit easier, so we will now do a 4h night (and not 3h) and still three 30min naps. I already did one night and 2 nap and it went pretty well since I manage to fall asleep during both of them (which was not always the case before). I will see during the next days if I manage to come back to everyman and stick to it a bit longer.

Note: I think Chris had almost the same experience in parallel (he wasn't in holiday with me) but he will explain you himself what happened to him.
