I also have to change fast my sleeping schedule because I will have to go to college again in some days. I don't think it's unhealthy... at least not extremely unhealthy to go to sleep late, but it's uncomfortable because you miss the morning things. I only know a solution, and it's a painful one. :) You have to wake up earlier some day, at the hour you want to wake up for the future, and don't sleep at all during the day. You will be tired than earlier (because you will maybe be tired all day), you will go to sleep earlier, and also wake up earlier. And you can also do it gradually, moving your sleeping schedule with just one hour everyday.

I think having a warm bath before going to bed induces sleep. Some says that drinking a glass of warm milk before bed do helps too. Try to avoid daytime naps too.

what i would suggest is for you to either take melatonin or try the yoga idea of emptying your mind before you go to sleep. your body produces melatonin normally but just may need a jump start to help you sleep. you can get it at most health food stores.

I can totally relate to this situation. I sleep around 4 in the morning and sometimes it makes me cry that I can't sleep while everyone else is sleeping peacefully. But lately, I have finally been able to sleep early. What I did was: *I unplugged - means I didn't use the internet for one whole month *Never go to bed hungry *Never go to bed unwashed *Drink a glass of water before bed *Didn't read books for a month (I am a bookworm) I hope it'll work for you too.

We have the same problem! School just resumed and I've really been having difficulties with my sleeping habits! What's more annoying is that I have morning classes. I've consulted the school doctor and she told me that I should exercise more during the day (but not right before sleeping; that will only keep you up) so that I can get myself to sleep earlier

Having a long break from school could mess up you sleeping pattern. So you might just be lying in bed earlier, and not watch tv, or think too much. Prior to that,, have a warm bath. That should help you in having a restful sleep.

When I can't sleep I usually turn to the most boring thing, and do that until I feel tired to the point that I need to close my eyes. For me that is studying. So I usually study late in nights if I can't sleep and at the end of it I usually end up dropping asleep. That is the best way I see to actually force myself to sleep. You can try that as well if you are having problems sleeping.
