When my husband has a bad nights sometimes, he will stay up all night or two nights and it totally messes up his sleep schedule. The sleep doctor told him to slowly roll his sleep hours back to normal by going to sleep earlier and earlier. He starts by going to bed at 4am the first day, then the next day at 2am, then the next day 12am, then the next day at 10pm, then finally 8pm and his hours are back to normal. This gives his body time to readjust to a correct sleeping time and it seems to really work.
Get some fresh air and exercise each day and go to bed at a specific time every night, whether you feel tired or not. Turn out the light and close your eyes and think restful thoughts. If after 30 min. You really can't drop off, turn on a light and read. It will make you so sleepy before you know it! This consistant routine will signal your body that it's bedtime.
Yeah I'm worried to school will start but what I'm going to do is stay for one day without sleeping then sleep in the other day at earlier time like 9pm or 10 I'm going to be tired so I will sleep very fast then I will wake up early for the school so.u can do the same if u want
Well you just fall asleep and set your alarm to wake up really early the next day. You will be tired for all the next day but then you will be tired and get to sleep on time that night and wake up on time and soon you will be on schedule!! Hope this helped! Good luck:) -Beth:D
Regular physical exercise stimulates Pons, a part of our brain stem which is responsible for producing healthy sleep at night. Bed needs to be associated with relaxation. Thinking about our inability to sleep while being in bed develops wrong association of worry behavior to bed. It is one of the causes for insomnia. Some CDs that help for relaxation are useful to induce sleep.
