Caffeine napping for glorious success

Toward the end of my biphasic experiment I started experimenting with caffeine napping- I don’t remember where I originally got the idea, but there are plenty of plausible sounding posts on the internets.

Basically, the routine is simple. Wait till you’re tired, have a shot of espresso and immediately get 15-20 mins sleep. I’ve found it borderline impossible to pull off if you’re not tired, although I find it difficult to sleep without impetus anyway. I’m not convinced this is something I could do longterm, but it’s proving to be significantly more convenient to slot in around my work/life balancing act than the 45 min daily naps I was taking during the biphasic experiment.
