Polyphasic Sleep – Several Short Naps Throughout the Day

I’ve been following Steve Pavlina’s polyphasic sleep experiment with great interest. Polyphasic sleep, if you don’t know, is basically taking several brief naps throughout the day instead of one "long nap" (ie sleep at night). Steve can now work 20 hour days with no side effects. This sounds like an awesome experiment to try for those who can completely control their own schedule. My sense is that it’d be particularly good for Silicon Valley folks, where people seem to work a lot at 2 AM anyways.

Today is the 60th day since beginning my polyphasic sleep experiment.  It’s hard to fathom that only 60 days have passed — it feels closer to 120 days.
