The big advantage for me is that it doesn't take long for me to "wake up" so to speak. Because my cycles are so short (2-4 hours) it only really takes me about a few minutes or so to really get out of bed.

    I wish I had a sleep cycle. My body has a habit of overruling life, plans and alarm clocks :(

    I've heard of that before, but still seems unusual for me lol. Does it make you feel more energized than sleeping at once?

    I couldn't imagine such short sleep cycles. If I'm up for more than my usual 15 hours I start getting bored as hell.

    I've kind of been doing that, but not by choice and I really hope to change it, lol. Basically I've just been involuntarily crashing at around 10-11PM, wake up at 2-3AM and chill for like an hour and then sleep until 6AM.

    Biphasic sleep is supposed to be good for you, but probably not the way I do it.

    I like doing it this way because there are a lot of people out there that absolutely cannot function unless they get like 7-8 hours of sleep, and I'm like.... I don't even have a sleep schedule. It would be chaos for me to try to make 7-8 hours work, so I just split my sleep cycle throughout the day. I just sleep anywhere from 2-3 times a day.

    The advantage of this is that if I sleep early, I wake up early. If I sleep late, I still wake up early. I'll still feel like hot trash, but it's temporary and goes away and as long as I'm not doing anything particularly intensive, I can make it throughout the day if I do nothing but sleep for like 2-4 hours.

    I feel like it's something that could work for me if I didn't have the work schedule I have. Instead I sleep 4-5 hours (ideally) on work nights and then I crash and play catch up on my days off. Sometimes I'll take a nap or two to catch up on sleep throughout the week but it tends to be countered by me staying up later that night oop.

    I do the same thing and I think its because of the fact that I don't have a set schedule. I can close one night and then be a mid the next. And I won't even start with Friday and Saturdays. But if I close I have to take a nap before going to work or by 11 I'm dragging ass at work.

    Well, if it works it works lol. Maybe I should give it a try over the summer if I have a week off because it sounds interesting.

        I'm usually pretty accurate when I feel a certain way but I hope I'm wrong this time!

        Seeing people being happy makes me happy, it's how it should be. Long may this spell continue for you!

        I always feel guilty when I complain about having a headache because I know there are people out there with worse issues than chronic tension headaches.

        Comparing yourself to others never ends well. Everyone's pain is valid, imo

        Walking around these past few days killed my feet but now I feel like I want to continue walking

        problem is I live in an area that's not walk-friendly

          Is it walking around / through places you like or simply the exercise?

          A treadmill is always an option if it's just exercise.

          Back when i lived in town i used to walk to places like publix and walmart (depending on mood and which house). Took like an hr and such but worth it for the fresh air and exercise. Ig i could do that and walk to dollar general where i live now but my work leaves me too lazy to do any walking around unless its disney zzz
