Smart Habit Saturday-Biphasic Sleeping

The Lazy Organizer has started SMS in which you choose a new habit to start. I just stumbled across is today, which is Sunday, but I don't think she'll mind if I join!!

I've decided to get back into my biphasic sleeping schedule. I know that it is good for me, and I enjoy it once I get the schedule down pat, but those first few days just suck. I got off the schedule when Josh started going to school, but I can't let that deter me. I just need to tweak it a little!

Biphasic sleeping gives me more energy. It gives me more alone time with Josh (assuming Keira goes to sleep-ever). It enables me to get more housework done without taking time away from the kids. It makes me happy. It gives me the chance to exercise. Biphasic sleeping lets me have some alone-time, which helps keeps me sane.

So there you have it. I'm getting back into biphasic sleeping.

Thanks for joining us Kari! I have never heard of biphasic sleeping before either. I read a few of your posts and it sound interesting.

Let us know how you do this week!

I had never heard of biphasic sleeping either, so I went to wikipedia. I think I was pretty much biphasic in college and come to think of it I loved that schedule. I would take a blissful nap from about 4-7 and then stay up until midnight or so and sleep until about 7 or 8 (I always seemed to have early classes.) Now I go to bed around 10 and find that I always wake around 4. If I have off sometimes, I will get up for a few hours and then go back to sleep for a few hours later in the am. Maybe biphasic is the way to go?
