So what happened after that amazing night’s sleep? As you might remember, I got 13 hrs of sleep that one night. And as you might guess if you have read In Pursuit of Sleep, it took a few nights to recover because it had altered my sleep propensity curve. The very next night, I got only 5 hrs of sleep before waking. The next few nights, I seem to sleep lighter than usual, but I stayed with the Transition Trek and made sure I did get a good measure of sleep. But then my propensity curve corrected, and I have been getting 7 to 9 hours every night.
The moral of this story is that too much sleep certainly can upset future nights’ sleep, but with proper discipline and use of the Transition Trek, all can once again be put back in order.
