Interesting. Doesn't look like you've posted much here though. I wonder why it was getting hard to concentrate later on though.


Hehe... been a while... I ended up stopping my experiment after a month... I didn't want it to start affecting my grades. Overall I have to say I enjoyed the sleep schedule, but if it's necessary for you to concentrate for extended periods of time during the day, it may not work out great.

I put up some final thoughts on my webpage, you can find it here.

Yay, The term break has finally come. From today I'm now polyphasic sleeping (Again smile )

I have 14 days to recover before I go back to 'tech. It takes ten days max before one adjusts and another 10 days after that to fully settle in I've heard. 21 days total and you're fully adjusted.

I'll post results here or in another thread (whichever is best).

i think i'm going to try uberman.

my concerns are:
1) i will probably n eed to drive somewhere tomorrow depending upon certain factors, however one day of non-sleep shouldn't impair driving much.......
2) i don't know how to avoid my family, I don't want to be around them at all while i'm adjusting to the schedule, in fact i do not want to be at their home, period, at all, ever, if i'm on uberman because i'd go insane from boredom and wouldn't really feel "free" to do crazy random things whenever i want to.
3) i don't know if i can adjust by the time i'm supposed to housesit for my grandparents (about 9-10 days from now)... though of course i can crash at their place just fine.

yeah i guess those are about my only real concerns.

really not sleeping would be cool because it's only 3-4 hours til sunrise then i can go for a great walk, maybe have a nice unhealthy breakfast, and just try and exercise and be introspective and outdoors for most of the day, then i can come home and force the 3 hour nap cycles or whatever it is you do.

Here's what I found harded when trying this. Most tips I can give you are repeated on others' websites on the net. But here there are again.

On a lot of pages it mentioned have a project or something to do. I didn't find this a problem. Reading websites was enough to keep me occupied.

1. Use two alarm clocks. If there are others in the house you dont want to disturb. Place one near your bed and set it to go off 1 minute earlier than the one away from your bed. Never ever stay in bed after the alarm has gone off.
I woke sometimes sure I didn't sleep. Turned my alarm off then oversleep.

2. Watch-out on the second night. You wont feel very tired but both times I tried it that's when I overslept. It took me by surprise both times.

3. For the first few days (About as long as I lasted smile ). You'll feel fine through the days. The hardest time to stay awake is between 12 and 8. This might be the best time to do some exercise. (I can't imagine it being very easy to fall asleep while going for a run)

4. I think it'ld be good to get a friend to do it with you. Then you can keep each other awake. And you'll greatly reduce the chance of oversleeping.

I dont think you should drive when you're that tired, otherwise good luck though. I dont think I'd be able to manage it for very long, I like sleeping too much...

well I already failed lol, but I made it to 24 hrs.

really I COULD have stayed longer I just felt so horrible sadblauw ....

so I crashed for what felt like hours and I got up thinking it was 5 p.m. and it was only 2 p.m..... so i crashed more, and that is when I had ABSOLUTELY FANTASTICALLY HILARIOUS DREAMS like i've never had before, this REM rebound state is something marvelous guys.... it's just beyond description, the best part is I'd flow through random dream scenes (all with the same hilarious themes!) like clockwork, maybe every 2 minutes....

stuff about Chappelles show, stuff about me being in a "groin grabbing contest" lol, really just amazingly creative, funny, and fairly vivid stuff.

If you don't mind me asking, How old are you? If you're still growing it would probably be a lot harder staying up. I am fine for about 48 hours with the few 20 min naps. I didn't feel horrible until the 4th night.

I'm out of school for the summer and don't have a job, so I think I'll give this a try. As soon as I get my web site up and running I post the URL here and put updates on my site.

Cool, Make sure you stick with it. I would really like to see someone succeed. Then I will have an excuse to try again. I seriously believe it is possible.

Been a while since I've been to the forums, some catching up to do.

I tried to avoid driving while I was on the schedule, it would not be a good situation to fall asleep at the wheel. I never spontaneously fell asleep while on the schedule (except once when I was reading, but that's quite different from driving). I don't think it's particularly dangerous to drive once you're adjusted to the schedule, as long as it's not too close to your nap time. But that's just my opinion.

I was 21 when I tried the schedule, probably a good age to be trying it. Messing with your sleep schedule so severely isn't something I'd recommend for children at all.

Good luck to everyone who's giving this a try.
