I’m very curious. I read the blog posted a while back about other sleeping schedules. The one that interests me the most is the Dymaxion Cycle. However, my issues are this:
I’ve read many times where no one can find someone that successfully made the switch. There was mention of someone in the blog post, however there was no additional information about this person. Just that they did it…?
Is there anyone here that is on this sleeping schedule now? Does anyone know anyone on it currently I could speak with?
Second issue. I’ve read of possible issues where your body won’t create enough melatonin. Is this a possible issue that anyone knows of? What about other health concerns?
I realize the worst part is about the first month. I’m prepared for that. The expression “No pain, no gain” comes to mind.
I’m the type of person to research the hell out of something before I go close to it. So please, if anyone can provide me any additional information I’ll love you forever :)
@travisad, I don’t know much about the sleep schedule, but I just heard something today that you’d be interested in.
Apparently, you can adjust your sleep schedule by adjusting your eating schedule. If you go a long time (12-16 hours) with no food, and then eat, your body sets that eating time as “breakfast time” and will adjust accordingly. Might be an interesting way to start a new sleep schedule…
Just an update, day 22 I’m calling it quits. I’m not adapting, even with the modifications to the sleeping schedule. The only thing that seems to be adapting is my ability to sleep through alarms, shut off alarms, and hallucinate for the first 15 minutes after being woken up by someone else. (Makes for some hilarious conversations and texts)
I’m going to drop back to the everyman sleeping schedule and get used to that one. After I’ve adapted to that sleeping schedule, and can attempt this again some day when I have less on my plate, I’ll let you guys know how it goes.
@brainnectar, Hey man, it’s all good. Now I know what to expect should I try again. I feel like I could have done it had I trusted someone else to try it with me… I woke them up at least once a day to make sure they didn’t screw anything up and he probably woke me up… twice. xD
Haha it’s all good though. I’m sure it will be easy to switch to everyman from here. So that makes me happy. :)
