SPAMAYL (Sleep Polyphasically As Much As You Like) is a fancy way of saying free-running sleep, or simply “take a 20 minute nap whenever you feel tired”. The adaptation for this is almost identical to Uberman (except one can take more naps), but afterward the schedule is more flexible than traditional Uberman.
During adaptation it is imperative that the nap times are kept rigid (using either the 3 or 4 hour rhythm) – the common mistake with SPAMAYL is that people think it is flexible during the adaptation. it is not. One can do a naptation to kickstart a SPAMAYL adaptation, but like Uberman there is ~2 weeks of impaired cognitive function while one gets used to the schedule.
The longest recorded SPAMAYL adaptee was Rasmus at Trypolyphasic who stayed with the schedule for over a year [Help elijah!]
If you need to squeeze more time out of your days, feel sluggish when you wake up, or just like self-experiments – then why not give Polyphasic Sleep a try? Sustainable Polyphasic Sleep cycles can cut your sleep time in half while making you feel more energized, creative and driven. Sounds crazy right? Simply put, it works by breaking up your sleep into multiple segments per day which increases how efficiently your body uses sleep time.
