Suppose that if I've to attend a morning class then I must wake at 5 AM in morning. Next, if I don't (attend the class) then I wake up at 7-8 AM.
I've experienced that, since I do attend those classes almost regularly, my body has adjusted itself (sleep cycle) to wake at 5 AM almost precisely without a alarm set and has also decided when to sleep (it seems to demand 7-8 hour of sleep). This, I think, is common to most of us.
Now suppose that I attend classes only on alternate days. Put simply, I wake up at 5 on first and at 8 on the next day and so on. This implies that I am constantly switching my sleep cycle every day. Would my body, now, be able to adapt to this continuously varying cycle (which is but periodic).
I suppose no, and that is just a guess based on my experience. But provided I give my body enough time, I think that it may really adjust to this scenario.
On a side note, assume that (in case it matters) I take a sleep of 7 hours during class days and a sleep of 8.5 hours during holidays to make this data realistic. .
