Biphasic Sleeping

Trying to Get Back into the Swing of Things!

I've been having problems staying awake lately. Yesterday was my day off, and I decided that I would sleep a lot-get it over with so to speak then start all over with my biphasic sleeping schedule on Thursday night. Well, I slept about 11 hours! Then, I went to bed again at 9:30pm, woke up a little after 11:00pm (my alarm was set for am instead of pm!). I didn't do anything other than sit on the couch with Josh, but that was very nice!
I went back to bed around 1 because I couldn't keep my eyes open! I had intended on waking up at 5:30 and exercising, ironing, cleaning, etc. Well, I didn't get up until the last possible second at 7:10 this morning. I slept HARD.
I don't think my problem waking up has anything to do with the biphasic sleep schedule, and I feel SOOO much better when I follow it. Although, I do agree with Anna that it is tough if you do anything in the evenings. Since I usually don't...I'm fine! I'm going to give it a go again tonight. I really need to make myself active after the nap; I think that makes a big difference. We'll see how it goes!!


  • Glad you gave yourself that time, I hope you are feeling better.

    Getting the napping routine started has made me think that I need a broader routine, something that will allow me to socialise AND sleep. Socialising is really important to me (too much time "alone" is a trigger for me getting really down) plus it is often part of my work, but maybe I should be saying that i'll socialise 2 out of 5 week nights only the rest I sleep properly.

    You may not be going out to socialise, but other things can get in the way, if you want to have a dinner with Josh, or watch a movie with him in the evenings etc.
