FAILED– Day 4, aka Recuperation

Yesterday early evening, I felt utterly exhausted. The first three days of the challenge, I had only been getting 4-6 hours of sleep a night. My body was rebelling against me.

I took a short twenty minute nap but not good enough. If I slept so early, I was concerned that it would throw off my entire sleep schedule. So, I stayed awake and eventually caught a second wind which ended up being a curse. I didn’t fall asleep until past 2:30am.

I woke up promptly at 7:30am, went to the bathroom, and went back to bed. I don’t have anything to do this morning, and my body demanded sleep.

So, I finally got my 8 hours of sleep. It’s yet to be seen how this will impact me tonight though. I’m okay though, I understand I needed the makeup hours. The question is just whether I can ever adjust to sleeping at 11pm or earlier.

On one hand, I really enjoy waking up early. However, my most creative periods are still late at night, and I like to be social late night on weekends. So, this will be an interesting challenge to continue.
