I find the core feature of my homeostatic dips is a deep favour to remain stationary. Moving seems unimaginably difficult. And yet, the moment I do, the homeostatic fog is cleared.
This happened last night at about 22:30. I moved, then I couldn’t stop moving. I did some IR, was very excited, and ended up getting deep into writing about the cosmos, then read in the dark on my phone (with night light of course it was Everything is Fucked by Mark Manson — a psycology book, one of my favourites) until finally at about 00:30 I fell asleep.
It felt that gap between 22:30 and 00:30 was the only boost of clear-minded energy I got through the entire day. What to make of that?
If I had taken afternoon caffeine I would’ve blamed that but I didn’t, which is why that spur of energy is extra-confusing.
Amazingly I must have slept straight through my watch beeping at 08:00 (so I have time for running before online school. Did not expect this to be forced awakening really, just a hard limit to get out of bed as 09:00 was earlier in the experiment). I recall waking up in the dark and falling back to sleep. My true wakeup (forced, noise, I didn’t wear white noise sleep mask) was 8:40.
Does anyone know of any incredibly, draw droppingly simple tools for visualising csv data?
