As the calendar turned to 2013, I found myself at a loss for time. After months of consistent blogging, my world had been flipped on its head in one afternoon.
As the blog post ideas grew in numbers, so did my sorrows for not posting. Time and time again I hunted for time to write. Writing was my fire but not my priority.
My faith and family come first, then my business. With great change happening around me, there was no time for anything besides my faith, family, and business. I'd fall asleep dreaming of a creative release and writing again each night.
After weeks of sorrow, I stumbled upon the recognition that there was only one place of my life I wasn't super productive at - sleepjunkie. I've consistently been the kind of individual who needed 9 hours of sleep minimum. I never realized until now that I was incorrect. I was able to sleep less, do more, and feel more lively by embracing a biphasic sleep schedule.
Sleep Cycle - This is an app for the iPhone that tracks your sleep based on your movement at nighttime. The less you move, the more intensely you are sleeping. After months of using the app out of interest I noticed a routine.
The Numbers - Slumber Cycle reveals that in six to eight hours I average four deep slumber periods; in nine hours, I average five. Regrettably, nine hours of sleep isn't quite productive.
The Siesta system includes one rest of one core and 20 minutes sleep consisting of six hours. I average four deep sleep cycles during six hours plus one deep sleep cycle for a total of five heavy slumber cycles daily.
The Toddler - I 'd to look no further to discover what a perfect Siesta schedule seemed like than to my own son. At Odds to my premises, the right time for your siesta is not halfway between sleep and wake time but later in the day, between three and five hours before beginning your core slumber.
The Break In - I 'ven't been a biphasic sleeper since I was five. Initially I attempted biphasic sleep I felt brilliant. The next night was more uncool. This tendency continued until my mind was a fog and my eyes felt full of sand. But the rest in was over, within two weeks my body adapted and settled in to its new cycle.
Productivity - Without a reason to create a fresh sleep routine, those who try biphasic sleep are usually failures. Locating something to fill the void is essential. Fortunately for me, I 've a blog to maintain and followers found time with.
For years I existed on a 26-hour day when the world ran on just 24 hours. My body never felt at home and sleep was less than sufficient. Biphasic slumber has been the key to a more beneficial, rested, and energized life.
What could you do with an additional hour and a half a day thanks to biphasic sleeping?
