Goal: Sleep 8 hours per day
Beeminder kept saying I only had to sleep 1 or 2 hours a day to be OK in a large # of days (e.g. sleep 1 hour in 5 days). That seemed obviously wrong (if I was to truly only sleep 2 hours in the next 5 days, I might actually die).
I saw that there’s something called a “ratchet” and “safety buffer” so I changed the buffer to “2 days” but it’s still wrong. It says I have to sleep 8 hours in 2 days and 9 hours. If I took that seriously, life would be pretty bad.
How do I get Beeminder to actually follow my goal? I want to derail if I’m below 8 hours for multiple days with some leeway that doesn’t cause death or major illness.
