    I think this is the right place for this sort of thing so here it goes. I'm going to stay up all night to correct my sleeping pattern so I can actually enjoy the majority of the day. I'm currently sleeping through the morning which is a bit poop. I've done my reading and people also say that if you don't eat for 16 hours prior to when you want your new 'breakfast' to be this can help with resetting the body clock. Most of my sources seem to have a lot of success and I was just wondering if you guys have any tips for staying up all night?

    By the way, I already know my lack of willpower led me to get this way (not going to bed at a decent time for example) and I'm pretty fixed on the method of correcting this pattern. Just wondering if you guys had any ideas on what might prevent me from dozing off.

    I'm thinking about staying up until 10pm tomorrow (the 10th) and really need tips.

    Don't stay awake all night, you'll end up getting too tired and going to bed, or you will go to sleep during the day and mess it up even more.

    Just go to bed at the time you usually do, then wake up at about 8/9. As long as you don't take any naps during the day you'll be set to go to bed at about 10/11 easy.

    The trick is to make sure you have something to keep you busy all day until it is time to go to bed. By staying awake all night you'll only end up making up for lost sleep the next night.

    I've heard of that breakfast thing and it should work. It's possible to reset your body clock, but harder to reduce the amount of time you sleep. If you go to bed when you are tired and wake up without an alarm, you will actually find yourself sleeping less.
