Biphasic Sleeping

Sleeping increments

Interesting question about waking up. I've been thinking about a similar thing. If I want to nap for 1.5 hrs, do I go to bed for 1.5hrs or for 2, knowing that it will take me some time to fall asleep. Is the sleep cycle the actual sleeping amount or the sleeping amount plus the falling asleep time?


  • I think it'd be more accurate to say it is the actual sleep time. I have been giving myself time to fall asleep, usually about 15 minutes because I fall asleep quickly. I don't know for sure, though!

  • Thanks, I try to add a bit, but I'm getting frustrated with the first nap, I'm taking so long to fall asleep! Second sleep isn't a problem.
