I've got a really bad habit of going to bed at 3-4 am every night - I try and work as soon as I get home, but I always end up doing proper work increasingly late, I never hand work in because I always do it so late, I sleep in class because I don't sleep at home etc. It's getting very frustrating and annoying, and my grades are sinking quickly. Is there anyone else who has got themselves out of a similar cycle, please tell me how lmao bcs all I want to do at this point is to do my hw and go to bed at ten, not much to ask of myself tbh

Stop procrastinating your work and go to bed at an earlier time. Set yourself alarms for all that you need to get done, including a bed time.
If you're finding yourself staying up on your phone, get a time blocker to lock you out at 9.

Get a site blocker and block your email account after x time ( 4pm maybe? ). Catch yourself and make sure you're aware when you stare off into space. Start working on essays at a better time like immediately when you come home from school.

Do you know any good site blockers? I would love to do that but I'm scared I'll get anxious about my skl emails and take the site blocker away, or panic. I have started working on essays when I get home, but i do them in short chunks and procrastinate a lot - to the extent that I'll stop a timer to fidget or something. Do you have any tips for that? Sorry to bother you and thx for you help

I use Block Site on chrome, its an absolute pain to block/unblock sites with it which is a good motivator to finish your work. It can be hard to not try to find ways around the block but it does in the end really come down to self control. As much as you may want to you need to tell yourself 'no'.
Theres nothing necessarily wrong with doing it in short chunks, breaks are needed. But rather than just fidgeting in the breaks why not get yourself something to eat or take a walk ( set yourself a timer too, ie not over 30 minutes or whatever amount of time ). Going back after the break it will be much easier to concentrate as you've been able to actually clear your mind, what should be the whole point of taking a break in the first place.

Limit the amount of time you look at screens, like phones, TVs, etc.
Exercise, the harder you exercise the more easier it will be to sleep
Create a timetable and stick to it, don't let anything distract you
