This is some background on how I intend to conduct my attempt to convert to a nap-based sleep schedule, and how I plan to run this blog during my conversion.
The method of adaptation I am pursing is fairly straight forward – Go a day without sleep and then take as many 20 minute naps as needed. The reason for the day of sleep deprivation is to increase the effectiveness of naps, as one of the common problems is failing to fall asleep during a nap period. To wake up, I am going to be using an iOS alarm clock called Freaky Alarm, an app that refuses to turn off until a math problem is solved (easier said than done in the daze of waking up). As backup, I will also be using the Clocky alarm clock, which has wheels to prevent me from catching it and turning it off easily.
I do not plan to have a rigid number of blog updates, although I intend on having at least one per day. Realistically, on easier days, I will do one update, but on more difficult days I will do 2 or 3 updates. If you have any questions or comments, just reply to the latest post and I’ll do my best to reply.
I’m currently in the sleep deprivation part, and it is about 4am. Of course, being a University Student, I’m used to all-nighters so I do not think I will need to post an update until the end of the day, before I first nap (I’ll call this Day 0). Until then, happy napping!
