I've gotten myself into such a bad sleeping pattern since moving out for uni. Because of one or two nights where I slept late, my sleeping is now officially messed up. I DO NOT feel sleepy at all before 4am, even if i go into bed at about 2am and try sleep im just tossing and turning because im so wide awake. My eating habits are okay, I eat 3 times a day. Since im sleeping so late I wake up like 1-2pm on days i dont have university and the days i do, im running late because I get up at last minute. I need some effective and realistic ways of coping with this. Ive always had problems with sleep and im so sensitive to changes, when its going good its fine then the second one of my friend suggests we do a late night cruise or whatever and i sleep later than usual, thats when it goes downhill for me as you can probably tell it's so frustrating because it affects my mood, my grades and my productivity.

Set an alarm for whatever time in the morning to get you up earlier.
You may be tired to start with if you went to bed late the night before, but keep setting an alarm and getting up at that time and it will make you more tired of a night so you should start to sleep earlier.

You need to start setting early alarms every morning. The more you wake up early, the more tired you will be later in the day and the earlier you'll get to sleep. It may take a few days or even weeks to adjust but it's the only way you can really sort your sleeping pattern out. Even on days when you don't have uni or start later in the day, still set an early alarm and get up and do something like go to the library, do your food shopping/laundry, etc. - anything to keep yourself busy. And on days when you do stay up late with your friends, maybe save this more for the weekend so you can be productive Monday - Friday.

You might need to stay up one entire night, so that you can go to sleep at a decent time the next night.
