Quality of sleep plays a pivotal role in determining one’s attitude, efficiency and general cynicism for the next day. This graph shows more irregular sleep where the user probably didn’t sleep as well as in our first example. This is what a sleep graph will look like if the phone has trouble identifying your movements in bed. To modify polyphasic sleep based on my life’s need, I checked up on some documents about REM sleep.
At first, a simple biphasic sleep seem to be the best option, but reading up upon it led me to believe that the benefit isn’t as great as it claimed because most of the people in the biphasic pattern tend to take some extra hours during weekends to catch up on sleep, which defeats the whole purpose of polyphasic sleep. Here, details my log on a transition to Triphasic and training myself to induce REM state sleep right away.
Inspired by this single activity that unifies the diverse lifestyles across the globe, James Proud, a 23-year-old British entrepreneur, introduced the sleep tracker Sense in early 2015.[1] Although there have already been similar sleep-tracking products, Sense represents the culmination of innovations in the field in its integration of sleep pattern analysis with environmental factors.
Although alcohol can make you fall asleep faster, it will make it harder for you to sustain a good nights sleep. Wikipedia has a good explanation of what REM sleep is and also a section on polyphasic sleep pattern.
I also looked up the web on previous researches that were done on sleep cycle and came up with this site that hosted this graph.


The biphasic schedule invovles a short 1.5 hour nap in the afternoon and a core 4~5 hour sleep in the early morning.
Once that is established I can then move on to reducing the amount of sleep that I take on each nap. Sleeping 4 to 5 hours at night and having a nap for 1.5 hours at midday is a monophasic pattern that would leave you very sleep deprived that would lead to unproductiveness and bad health. The user in our example occasionally enters deep sleep during the first half of the night, but remains in lights sleep altered with period of being awake for the second half. I can benefit greatly from the extra time and I don’t mind getting sleep deprived during the holidays.
I’ve read quite a bit about polyphasic sleep now and decided to try my own experiment with Triphasic sleep pattern.
It’s important that you place your phone correctly: Accelerometer The accelerometer is used to analyze your movements as you sleep. The wristband’s built-in sensor technology monitors not only your physical activity during the day, but also your sleep patterns. The reason is numerous, but mostly because of my professional and my previous experience with biphasic sleep pattern. Biphasic or segmented sleep requires you to sleep a total of 7 to 9 hrs of sleep at night interrupted in the middle by a wakefulness of about 1 to 2 hours in the alpha state.


The first state in a sleep cycle is light sleep, followed by deep sleep and a dream state referred to as REM-sleep.
In short, the important part about the beginning of polyphasic sleep is to train your body to get to REM state sooner than you are used to and it is ok to have 30 minutes naps if you feel too tired between sleep schedules. A full sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes and is normally repeated several times each night. Later, after I got the challenging job of being an engineer, I always collapse after I get home so my brain can shut down and regenerate The graph indicate that I will get through a complete cycle of sleep pattern in 90~110 minutes and will be the basis of my strategy. The second segment of sleep which is about 3 to 4 hours is called the morning sleep characterized by frequent REM states. Sleep Cycle uses a wake up phase (30 minutes by default) that ends at your desired alarm time. During this phase Sleep Cycle will monitor signals from your body to wake you softly, when you are in the lightest possible sleep state. Sleep Cycle has two snooze modes: Intelligent snooze Intelligent snooze lets you snooze through your wake up phase. In biphasic you have more and shorter cycles, and longer, more vivid REMs in the second segment.
