Planning your time
You will also want to plan out carefully what to do when (see Schedules). For example, Steve Pavlina recommends that during the adaption period, you exercise in your old monophasic sleeping time (ie. usually 1-5am in the morning), to help keep you awake. Other suggested tasks are showering (if that keeps you awake; if not, try a cold shower :) ), cooking (standing up), and cleaning up your house and work area (also standing up). You should also have a long list of things to do with all the extra time you have. If you don't keep busy you'll fall asleep. It helps if you have Project Mentality.
Someone else suggested always doing something useful for your Significant Other at night, so that they appreciate the schedule, even if they're not on it.
