    How do you personally do it? I don't want to stay up until 6am, then intend to wake up at like 10 and not be able to get up.

    You have to have a routine to fix your sleeping pattern. During the summer I sleep at around 4 every night but on the first day of school i get exhausted and sleep at 11 and there you go, it fixes itself basically..

    Don't you think theres a quick fix? Or that it has to be a regulated pattern for a day or two?

    It would have to be a regulated change over time. Best thing you can do is set a bed time and a wake up time for yourself and stick to them!

    No, i used to try all nighters because i thought it would make me sleep early the next day, but it didn't work. I ended up sleeping during the day because i just couldn't stay awake, then i slept at 4 again so back to square one basically :tongue:

    Like i said, you need a routine, maybe try going to the gym or something that way you'll get tired and sleep earlier..

    Go bed about midnight and set your alarm to wake up early. Don't drink coffee or anything that will stimulate your mind and keep you awake. If you can't sleep and think you are going to be awake until 6 am, just stay awake as long as possible (paradoxical intention.) You will tire eventually. To snap out of the routine though, you need to set your alarm and wake up at a more regular time. You will feel tired but eventually you will get back on track. You can always go to sleep for an hour or two in the afternoon if you're really tired, but make sure that you use an alarm so you don't oversleep.

    Whenever this happens to me I pull an all nighter and stay up for as long as I can and keep doing that until I'm back to a regular sleeping patttern, takes me about a week.

    This is basically my current method. It rarely ever works.

    I'll try this out. Hopefully it'll produce good results.
