Everyman / biphasic schedule

2 years, 1 month ago

Hey guys i’ve been reading a lot on this website and others about polyphasic sleeping and I want to try it for the 30 day challenge. I thought it would work because I get off from school for winter break soon and I would have time to adjust. But, I also have swimming during the vacation. I was going to go for the everyman because it’s flexible and efficient, but I was thinking that during the adjustment period that I might be too dead for swimming. So if that won’t work out I thought I could try the biphasic/siesta schedule because I’m assuming it’d be easier to adjust to (tell me if i’m wrong), and then adjust to the everyman once I have another break maybe in February. (I’m also a student so I’d probably do the 2 nap everyman cycle as not to have to take naps during school).
Last thing, I’m only 15 so i’m wondering if polyphasic sleeping is even safe for teenagers, haven’t really seen anything about it.
Suggestions?

@maturp835, There has not been nearly enough studies to regard any sleep pattern that is not the ‘norm’ as safe. To do this will be putting yourself at risk. But is the risk worth the reward?
Recent evidence has been brought forth that humankind may have had a polyphasic sleep pattern up until recent times. Though this sleep pattern was 4 hours at night, wake for one hour, then back to bed for another 4. There was an interesting article on BBC about it. A quick google search should bring it up. If you are to pursue a new sleep pattern you may want to try this.
This is especially useful for those that want to attempt lucid dreaming or astral projection as it sets you up perfectly for the WILD technique. I think it is wild..
