I sleep all day and stay up all night?!
Question: I sleep all day and stay up all night?
I used to be in a similar situation (although not this bad) but I forced myself to go to bed a little earlier and also get up a little earlier every day. Instead of going to bed at 3-4 in the morning I went to bed at 2 in the beginning, and instead of going up at noon I got up at 11. Next week I went to bed at 1 in the morning and got up at 10 and like that I gradually changed my daily routine, one or two hours at a time, and now after a few months I have a normal circadian. Now I go to sleep around 10-11 pm and wake up at 7 am, so it worked for me. :) My advice is to take your time with this and not try to change your routines dramatically over one night/day, do it gradually and change it one hour at a time, and I think you will succeed. :) Good luck!
You have reversed your body clock to that of a shift worker you must make yourself stay awake today get out and walk get fresh air eat regular meals no caffeine and a warm bath with lavender in it before bed make a regular bed time eg 10pm and stick to it have horlicks & hot milk or cocoa and hot milk no tv in bedroom no games or computor at night it is the light that upset you if you can't sleep read a non stimulant type book just a story no action type that lulls you back to sleep keep this up and a walk after evening meal is a must ok You will be sleeping in no time it is about trying to make your mind blank free of worries about the next day or stress from this day before you go to bed that is also why the book Hugs Granny M x
1.My experience & Knowledge
start by going to bed a little earlier every night. you also need to get a job or find a hobby because that is way to much sleep for one person. I work the midnight shift and find it very hard for me to sleep during the day. if i am lucky i will get 6 hours of sleep a day. mostly i sleep for 2 hours and wake up for one then go back down for 2 more. its all about your routine. break it or you will become a disgusting fatbody. just being honest.
Some of us are just nocturnal animals. It does make life more difficult to interact. But I had to stop fighting it years ago because the days of work and not being able to sleep were rolling into 72 hours of no rem sleep. Then crash for days was killing me. Working in high pressure job 12 - 24 hours when I was needed was happening to frequently did not fit with being nocturnal . Not in a 0 error job.
So if you are like me can't take drugs to slip you back into a different pattern then you either sign up for the sleep disorder Research programs, pay for sleep disorder therapy or go with your body's clock and flow.
good luck i understand
Ive been through this before like 5 days ago and i just wake up at 6:00PM and go to bed at 11PM or 12AM and then ONLY ON THAT DAY were you go to sleep early, you will get like 6 or 7 hours of sleep and then youll wake up at like 8 in the morning and then just go to sleep at 11pm or 12am again:)
Skip a day of sleep and them fall asleep around 10-12 pm. Get up, by alarm, before noon the next day. May be hard but keep on that sleep schedule untill your comfortable with sleeping at night.
I had the same problem. I just stayed up for days at a time and then i just fell asleep around 8 and i wake up around 5 or 6 in the morning.
take some energy drinks or something to make you stay up to reverse your actions. if its 6 now then stay up until 6pm then go to sleep
