I have the absolute worst sleep habits ever. I’m up late every single night – like until around 3 or 4am. The time I wake up varies but most days I get up with Fiance when he goes to work around 8. The thing is, as tired as I am in the mornings/afternoons after only 4 hours of sleep, by the time night rolls around the tiredness fades and I am wired. No matter what I do I just can’t fall asleep earlier. I’ve tried a ton of things I found on google and the one that really seemed to help was no electronic devices an hour before bed. I shut down everything and then read in bed for an hour or so before falling asleep, and this worked for about a week and a half until it stopped. Now if I’m reading I still don’t get tired. I tried pushing it back awhile, so shutting everything down at 12 and then relaxing/reading but that just found me lying in bed wide awake at 4am again.
Falling asleep at a “normal” time is really hard for me. Ideally I’d like to get into a midnight bedtime and then wake up at 8, 8 hours seems to be where my body best functions. How do I make myself fall asleep? Anybody out there have any experience with this?
