A forced break from my crazy sleep schedule

I am very reluctantly in the middle of a four day break from my crazy Everyman Sleep Schedule experiment, where I sleep 3-4 hours at night and then take three short naps during the day. I’ve been attending a conference and there was just no way to get two naps in at the Jacob Javits […]

My Crazy Sleep Experiment: Day eighteen

So I think I can call my crazy Everyman Sleep Schedule experiment a success, but only part-way. While I’m no longer tired (as long as I stick to the schedule), I’m finding myself rather unmotivated, which may be a result of the experiment, or possibly just my normal unmotivated self – hard to tell. :-) […]

My Crazy Sleep Experiment: Day Eight

It’s getting harder – I’m more tired – but that’s what’s supposed to happen. So I’m pushing through. Originally posted on Selfish Mom.

My Crazy Sleep Experiment: Day Five–not insane yet

So far so good. Waiting for some kind of crash, but so far, nothing! It can’t really be this easy, can it? I mean, if it were, everybody would be doing it! Originally posted on Selfish Mom.

Day 2 of my crazy sleep experiment

Day two of my Everyman Sleep Schedule was totally messed up by something completely out of my control, so I think I might be back at square one. :-( And yes, I’m still wearing yesterday’s clothes. It was a rough night. Originally posted on Selfish Mom. All opinions expressed on this website come straight from […]

Can I get more time by sleeping less without going crazy?

Last week I was reading an article on Cracked.com titled 5 Ways to Hack Your Brain into Awesomeness (that’s about as close as I can get to self-help without barfing). The very first tip was about something called Uberman’s Sleep Schedule, detailed here and here. You may recognize the basic concept from an episode of […]

How to power nap correctly

Years ago I read something that totally changed the way I napped. Sometimes, when I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore, I would lay down for a nap, and wake up groggy a couple of hours later. Or, I’d set an alarm for 15 minutes, supposedly the right amount of time for a power nap, […]

Today’s Agenda: Dr. Oz edition

So I’m on my way to Rockefeller Center to attend a roundtable discussion with some fabulous bloggers and Oz the Great and Terrible. No, wait, wrong Oz. I’ll be meeting Dr. Oz, the one who rose to fame on Oprah and keeps making me look up the word “omentum.” (Many thanks to Barbara Jones and […]

Today’s Agenda: Full night’s sleep edition

So on Sunday I declared on twitter that I was going to get to bed by midnight every night for a week, and see what it’s like not to walk around like a zombie. That night I got to bed at 2am. The next night I think I did a little better, around 1:30am. Then […]
