i'm so tired!

Postby Beckie » Tue Oct 21, 2008 4:35 am

i don't know where this belongs so i've put it here!
Basically i started uni in september, and because of the new routine my sleep pattern has been completely disrupted :( I have tried and tried to get to sleep at a reasonable time but the earliest i've managed is around 5am- and i have lectures at 9 some days! I get into bed but i can't drift off! And because i'm not sleeping at night i'm napping for hours at a time through the day, and i can't help that either because by about 4 in the afternoon i can't keep my eyes open :( its not a problem while i'm at uni really, but everytime i go home i'm not up for seeing my friends and stuff because i'm in my nocturnal uni mode! Any tips on how to help me sleep on a night? And stay awake through the day? I know it sounds stupid but i feel like i'm never properly awake anymore because I'm always so tired!

You actually need to set yourself on a set bed time and stick to it, if you feel yourself needing a sleep during the day don't allow it, just try a few nights of going to bed at 9pm, then 10pm then 11pm (etc), set your alarm for 8am every morning so you HAVE to get up then, you will soon fall back into a pattern; except you need to have the will power to actually want to get up. If you don't get up you never will; I set my alarm for 6.30am every morning and keep using the snooze function and generally get up between 7 and 7.15am, setting the alarm and getting up straight away doesn't work for me, so I have to set it early and keep waking myself up to get up on time.

try taking energy drink during the day to keep you awake so hopefully by the evening when it wears off you will get to sleep
do it for a few days until you are in a pattern then stop drinking it
stop drinking it about 6pm so it wears off in time for bed

A good tip for that, is moving the alarm to the other side of the room so you HAVE to get up to turn it off.

I agree whoopsie except I'd either get up, turn it off and get back into bed (especially if it was cold) or leave it going for a while lol.
