I am catching up with posting online my articles.
This is the continuation of the previous article:
So yesterday I came up with the idea that I should try to look at sleeping as an addiction and so I should deal with it like with any other addiction. And that means that I should stop taking addictive substance no matter what. And this further means that I should not sleep at all.
Unfortunately this did not work too well last night. I managed to stay awake until around 5 am but then I did not put the alarm clock on and I woke up after 10.30 this morning. And then during the day I had 2 short 17 min naps. So that is around 6.5 hours of sleep.
Apart from this I need to say that I have a difficult day today as I feel rather tired and I have a weird feeling around my chest. My productivity was very low today but this could be also due to the fact that I have not had any days off in the last 2 weeks.
Within this point with lower effectiveness at work I have noticed that in those moments of weakness there is a certain tendency to deviate from the track and do some other things, which would further take me away from my path to my goal. To explain it better... This experiment with the sleep goes along with another experiment with the self-discipline for 21 days. And so today I noticed that in the moment of my weakness I had a temptation to do something outside of my plan. And I was already off the path with one foot but luckily I stopped myself from doing it. And so I am very pleased that I managed to stay on track.
I know that somebody could say that this is really stupid and crazy what I am trying to do with the sleep but well... I need to try it. And I guess this may give others some clues and ideas in case that they decide to do a similar experiment.
