Experiment’s End

I’ve decided to stop my experiment for now. The main reason for this is that I felt like I was adjusting quite a bit the first weekend but only to about half of where I wanted to be. I expected to adjust at least a little more the second weekend, but this did not go as expected. If anything the second weekend felt like I wasn’t further adjusting at all, I continued to be overcome by drowsiness when I was supposed to be awake. If anything, I’d say it was more difficult to stay awake a week down the line.

I am not, by any means, saying that this means that this sort of sleep schedule is impossible. I think that with a little more discipline, this could work. In fact, although I’ve stopped this experiment. I am already thinking about trying it again, probably this time with some slight modifications based on my experience for this past experiment.
