    Im trying to get my sleeping pattern right. I need to be up tomorrow at half6 as i have to be in uni till 5 thenihave a late shift straight after. I got up this morning (after 6 and half hours sleep) at half 8 as i had an appointment. But then at half 11 i wentback to bed and slept until now, 3pm. . Im never going to sleep tonight. What can i do to ensure im not too tired tomorrow?

    Try and get a nap tonight, plan to do the more important things earliest in the day then if you have to sip something with caffiene in slowly throughout the day rather than something in one go.

    not much you can do about it now, get what you sleep you can

    tbh you shouldn't need a 4 hour nap after 6.5 hours of sleep... fixing your sleeping pattern means you just need to start spending only the time you want to be sleeping in bed (i.e. 11-8 or something) and just don't allow yourself to sleep at other times, you'll be tired enough then that you will sleep at a sensible time

    to keep yourself up try and keep busy, get up and walk around if you start feeling too sleepy (excuse yourself to the toilet and splash cold water on your face or something) and drink some caffeine if necessary

    Thanks for replies.

    I was ok, I slept last night lol. Some days I'm just extra tired and have to have a nap. I train for running 5 times a week and find that if I train in the morning ie weekends I'm tired when I get home and need some kind of power nap.
