Polyphasic Sleep Pattern

Inspirerad by the Polyphasic Sleep Pattern I decided to give it a try starting of Sunday the 4th of Mars, 2018. Due to my work schedule being two shifts, every other week daytime (6 am – 3 pm) and evenings (3 pm – 1 am) I had to modify it slightly. I will go for the 4 hours of bulk sleep with two additional 25 minute naps throughout the day. The problem comes during weekends when I have to switch from day to evening or vice versa.

On this particular starting day I decided to go for a 25 minute nap at 11:30 pm and then another one right before work, at work, at 4:30 am. After I come home from work I will get my 4 hours of sleep and then again a nap at 11:30 pm and once before work as previous. This is how I will sleep throughout the week up until the weekend where I will have to find a decent switch to a week of evening work. Not yet sure how to make that switch.

Basically one could say I am going for a Everyman-version of this: 4 hours of major sleep with 2 naps of 25 minutes each.

Why am I doing this? Sleeping has been a problem for me for a long time and I can’t seem to find a decent pattern going. I either sleep to much or to little and therefore I am always somewhat tired and have trouble getting things done. My hope is that this might be a suitable middle ground for me that can work perfectly for me. If I can find a decent way to make the switch during the weekends.

For now I will call this an experiment but if it turns out to work for me, possibly with some alternations, I might stick to it for the long term. I’ll keep you updated on the progress.

If you have any experience in similar experiments, please do share them with me in the comments below. I am curious and I surly could need some advice on the matter.

Wish me luck?


Author: Alaska Frank

Who is Alaska Frank? Some would describe him as a strange fellow with really messed up ideas. Maybe that’s true as his scripts are pretty damn odd. And brutal. For me, Alaska Frank is my personal way to handle reality. He’s my alter ego I created long ago to match the way I feel. The name Alaska points to my cold heart and no feeling of regret or shame or any other feelings for that matter. Frank stands for my honesty to everyone in any given situation. Some might take this as something offensive and become mad or sad or both while others appreciate it. My alter ego Alaska Frank has grown over the years and has now, in recent times he has become a real person for me. Even if you can’t meet Alaska Frank in real person he exist within me and follows me everywhere and I can bring him out whenever I need him. This might sound odd, like I escape the reality, afraid to meet the harsh. This is not the case. Alaska Frank is me and has always been me. It’s just not until my later years I realized it. Call it an identity crisis. Or any other thing if you like. But the fact is – I am Alaska Frank. And will always be. And I identify myself with my own creation. The main occupation for Alaska is writing, mostly drama for the stage but at some occasions he also writes fiction novels and poetry. He is fond charmed by the things presented with an open mind, things created to think and philosophize about. A bit of odd dark humor thrown in to it does not hurt either. Alaska Frank is pretty open with his projects he’s working on and if you are interested you can read small and early synopsis-like presentations of a bunch of stories he has in the Upcoming project and Current Project-pages. Feel free to comment on everything you read on this blog, either it’s posts or pages. I will answer if there’s a question in hand. Something else you might want to know: Alaska Frank is from Sweden, hence his main language are not English. He writes in English for the simple reason to learn, so if you read any of the content on this blog feel free to comment on this matter.
