Polyphasic Sleep Experiment at Zeo

November 12, 2010

There’s a great new post over at the Zeo blog by an experienced polyphasic sleeper – instead of sleeping in one 8 hour chunk, he breaks it up into three segments throughout the day. In his post he shows how he used Zeo to help optimize sleep quality and create a polyphasic schedule that feels better for him than the more common monophasic sleep.

It’s also part of a larger Polyphasic Sleep Experiment involving 11 polyphasic sleepers – Zeo is asking them to document their journey of adapting to polyphasic sleep with writing, sleep data, and video footage. I believe it’s still open to anyone who wants to join, so if you’re interested in going polyphasic, ask Derek at Zeo for more details.
Sweet dreams!

Dr. Alexander Smith found the trigger of his throat pain by eliminating a likely culprit from his diet: dairy. He noted that the pain disappeared, and then reintroducing the offending food and noticing that the pain came back. This simple protocol substituted for a much more difficult process that is typically recommended, saving him a lot of time, stress, and money.
