I’ve started my polyphasic sleep experiment tonight whilst I’m still enthusiastic. I thought about best ways to start this but quickly realised that there was no good way to start. The entire aim of the first couple of days is sleep deprivation. That’s what triggers the adaption. So I’ve had my first nap.
I didn’t sleep particularly well, just sort of drifted in a semi-sleep, relaxed but not actually sleeping. Thats what you get for trying to go to sleep before you’re tired. I’m thinking the 3am sleep will be somewhat easier to get into.
