The Ultimate Dark Period Course

WORK-IN-PROGRESS. Don’t expect the full course by taking it now.


Have you ever wondered if polyphasic sleeping is healthy?
This is a perfectly reasonable question to ask, because you are changing the rhythm of your body so drastically.
The ugly truth is that it may not be healthy; this is unless you take the right precautions.
You need to ensure a healthy circadian stability by keeping an intact dark period.

In short, the dark period is when you aren’t exposed to green & blue light.
As will be covered in details later, this can be achieved by using red glasses, red lighting or staying in complete darkness.

My name is Crimsonflwr and I am one of the people with the initiative of having a dark period.
Back in the early days of the community, it was common practice to use red glasses to block out blue & green light around 1 to 2 hours before the main SWS core.
However, literally no one even considered using them after you wake up from the core.

I got the idea for the dark period by making a correlation between plants and lighting conditions. Furthermore,  after researching the topic thoroughly, I came to the conclusion that the whole approach to polyphasic sleeping needed to change to make sure that people stay healthy. Apparently, this does also account for when they change their schedules.

In this course, you will also learn the background for this information & will be able to understand the importance of maintaining a good circadian health.
