Biphasic that is!

I'm going to attempt a biphasic sleep cycle to allow me to

A: Play the graveyard shift for poker of 10pm-5am
B: Be awake during the day with my family
C: Sleep less/more efficiently

For those of you who don't know what a biphasic sleep schedule is, there are some variations of it, but basically you sleep twice per 12 hour period for around 3 hours each time. I have just begun my foray into this practice (today will be my 2nd 24 hour cycle of biphasic sleep), but I have to say I am already impressed with how it feels. I'm going to keep a log of how I feel with this sleep schedule until it becomes routine for me. Probably a week or two and then update if I am still using this schedule in the future.

Day 1: 7/27.
After a 14 hour session of poker I arrived home at 5am and had something I had to be awake for at 9am so I set my alarm.

Day 1(b) first attempt: 7/28
Sleep cycle 1: 4hrs
Sleep cycle 2: 1hr45min
Total sleep: 5hr45min

After waking I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to attempt biphasic sleep. So I stayed awake until 5pm at which point I attempted to go back to sleep for 3 hours. My daughter didn't quite let me fall asleep at first, but eventually I fell asleep around 630pm and slept until 815pm. Upon awakening I was a little groggy because I didn't wake naturally but by my family jumping into bed to wake me up. After putting Allison to sleep I headed to work and started my session at 10pm. I played until 5am and felt great the whole time.

Day 3 7/29
Cycle 1: 3hrs50min
Cycle 2 (projected): 2hrs30min
Total sleep (projected): 6hr20min


When I got home at 530am I went to sleep until 920am. I awoke a little groggier than I was expecting, and laid in bed until 10am until finally getting up for breakfast. Now at 1pm though I feel great, and am going to try to go back to sleep from 6pm-9pm tonight.

Targets:
-Have an average sleep per 24 hour cycle of right around 6 hours.
-Not be cranky
-Crush people at the pokers
-Feel awesome and productive

I did a polyphasic sleep schedule for a while - now I'm on a bisphasic since I'm working third shift - I love it.

took me about 3 weeks to really get into though, it's nice when I take naps now though I wake up super refreshed because my body is still use to getting to REM a lot quicker now.

Who would that be? I'm genuinely curious, since I seem to have missed that.

My favourite line is Bet/Fold. I bet, you fold.

I tried Uberman's sleep cycle for about a month about 6 years ago and all I remember over that period of time was constantly being tired. Pretty much nothing else.

As far as switching to a biphasic schedule, I'd set your goals relative to the amount of REM and SWS you're getting rather than amount of hours you're sleeping.

yo whoosel, just thought i'd mention since ur name popped up here that I recently finished reading "early retirement extreme" which I believe I first caught wind of through your blog. Was very entertaining and insightful, cheers!

this sounds incredible yet i can't even sleep and wake up at the time i want. For past 10 or more, I've been staying awake till exhaustion and sleeping till I want to get up. Time is reading 10:56am here and I'm slowly going close to sleeping. I know my quality of life would improve if i can fix this but how?

Yea I also remember that several people tried that sleep cycle and all of them had a bad time and reverted back to normal.

GL though :D

Trying to remember which one it was. There was honestly about 4-5 people on LP that legit went crazy.

i must imagine everyone has a miserable sleeping cycle. I can't imagine anyone being extremely content with their sleeping schedule. I think most people get up because they have to. And the same people go to sleep at certain hours because again, they must. Then they probably catchup on all their fatigue during the weekends and repeat the same miserable shit during weekdays.

Wait, maybe that's just me. Hope the fuck not tho.
