Sleep schedule's getting real fucked. Usually sleep from 6am - 3pm, want to get it to 11pm - 8am. Went to sleep last night at 9pm in an attempt to correct it, but woke up at 1am and am still awake now at 8am. Should I just stay awake for the rest of the day to try to correct it?
I've been taking melatonin around 8 or 9pm but it doesn't really help at all. Also can't really do much physical activity because the job is pretty physical and it'll show that I'm sore.
I work at McD's currently. Sometimes it's hard as hell to get myself to sleep, so I've devised a method.
I'll sleep for about 20 mins to an hour when I get home at some point, and then sleep for 4 or 4.5 hours when it's bedtime so I can have breathing room to stay up.
For most people, the "sleeping sweetspot:" is about 4.5-6.5 hours on average. It's been theorized 8 hours could be too much. I function fine with 4.5-6.
Supplement sleep with naps, set yourself a schedule and you're good to go!
