    I don't know why but I sleep waaay less than everyone I know, I go to bed late and wake up early. I usually go to bed at 4-5 and wake up around 8-9. I wish i could establish a better sleep cycle because being up that late every night gets boring.

    Probably your mattress and how uncomfortable you are. It can also be caused by stress.


    I personally would sleep 9 hours every day if I could.

    I love sleep. But usually only get 4-5 hours due to a hectic schedule. Ideally, I like to go to bed at 4am and sleep till noon every day (I'm a night person-hate mornings). But typically go to bed between 1-2am and wake up at 6 am.

    I'm currently in the 'bed at 4am wake up at noon' camp, but only because I'm on holidays from uni. The days where I can't sleep until 4am and then have to wake up at 8 or 9am just about kill me - I walk around in a shitty daze for the first one or two hours of being awake.

    Dekiruman,

    You're not the only person in the world whose body does not like sleep. I often fall asleep after 9 or 10pm and wake up early. Unlike you, I can sleep throughout the evening. You may want to try yoga or stretching every evening. Though you may not like stretching or breathing, your body and mind find peace and crash.

    I cannot explain to you the difference between sleeping at night well and sleeping with intermittent wake ups throughout the night. It's not fun!

    Mike

    I have so many sleep issues....been to an all night sleep study.....meds, yoga, etc....nothing seems to work.

    I find the best thing for it, for me....is to establish a very regimented sleep pattern. i.e., go to bed at exactly the same time every night...whether you're tired or not....no tv, internet, etc...pitch dark room............no caffeine after noon...etc.

    It's very tough for me...especially traveling overseas all the time! GOOD LUCK!

    "There are multiple arguments supporting the restorative function of sleep. The metabolic phase during sleep is anabolic; anabolic hormones such as growth hormones (as mentioned above) are secreted preferentially during sleep."

    This is supposed to help induce sleep.

    I recently started going to bed early like around 9- 10 o'clock, prior used to staying up all night all the time. Hope you find a solution. I'd suggest getting ready for bed early if u can, take a shower, prepare for bed, drink a glass of milk that should make u a bit sleepy. Turn all electronics off being that it keeps us up whether we like to admit it, it does keeps us up. Lay in your bed with lights off and just lay there till u fall asleep. Hope it works. Cheers!

    I would do anything for a full 8 hour sleep. I've been falling asleep around 10pm or so and then up like clockwork at 2am and cannot fall back asleep sometimes till 4am. blah....

    Much mental stress so I will be taking yoga classes to relieve stress. I did take 3 3mg of Melatonin last night and got 6.5 hours of complete sleep. My room also needs to be completely dark and good suggestion above about turning off computers, tv, and all light sources in room... and wind down...

    Getting proper sleep is critical for immune system and muscle re-build.

    Highlighted info above....Did this last night with lights out and did some deep-breathing and fell asleep. That does work. Just need to do about an hour earlier.

    I have the same issue. I've been sleeping for 3-4 hours a night and by the end of the day I'm completely wiped out and like today for instance, I had the entire day to sleep in and I wake up at fucking 7 am. After 4 hours of sleep again... It's frustrating.

    My modus operandi is waking up after 4 or 5 hours, and then not falling back to sleep.... feel like a zombie late in the day. And naps don't help, because once I'm up, I can't fall back to sleep
    When I do get 7 to 8 hours, I don't know how to act. LOL.

    The inability to sleep and establish a regular circadian rhythm is often attributable to stress and can be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as depression. You should speak to a doctor.

    eat some carbohydrates when you wake up early...toast or cereal....and then go back to bed.

    Do you have a sleep routine? It sounds like you need some structure to your evening so your body knows it's going to sleep.

    I aim to go to bed at around the same time each evening. By 10:30pm I am feeling sleepy.

    My bedroom is used for sleep and nothing else (well, apart from you know what). It doesn't have any distractions in it, like a TV or a computer. It is has blinds which keep it completely dark.

    I tend to read a book before I switch off the lights. This helps me to relax and wind down from the day and I fall asleep in a couple of minutes.

    Try it.

    I had trouble sleeping this past week because my friends were being too damn noisy. I stayed home last night to sleep when they went out and I think I've fixed it.

    Oh and lack of sleep can cause lots of stress in which your body releases lots of cortisol. I believe this is when you body gang rapes your muscle tissues without any type of lubricant.

    I average about 5 hours sleep during the week, because I find that is all I need. I usually have a very long restorative sleep on a Saturday morning, usually about 10 hours. Studies have shown that, provided you have one good catch-up sleep at least once a week, you can go short for the rest, without any health consequences. Of course, a steady 7 hours per night is better.
