As common knowledge I currently reside on the East Coast. This makes things really troublesome when I want to game with my friends back home or talk to my girlfriend. Either I would have to ask them if they wanna game/talk a tad earlier (say 6 ish their time) or I would stay up till late night to get a sess in. Safe to say my sleep schedule gets demolished on those nights I want to stay up.
Enter Polyphasic Sleep. I’ll leave it to the wiki article to explain it. There are different methods of doing Polyphasic Sleep. I am specifically doing Segmented Sleep. With this I sleep my “first phase” of sleep around 8-9 ish for 3.5-4 hours. Then I wake up around 12:30-1am ish and do whatever. Around 3:30am I go back to bed to wake up (hopefully) around 7am to get ready for work. I still need to calibrate my body to fall asleep at an earlier time, but I think this might be my solution to hanging out with people on the West Coast still. We shall see……in anycase, going to sleep deprive my self temporarily so I can reset my sleep schedule.
