How do you reset your sleep schedule?
After dealing with insomnia (side effect of a medication) and a very erratic sleep schedule for a few months, I'm having trouble getting back to normal.
Currently I'm fighting insomnia 1-2 nights in a row, then crashing for about 11 solid hours on the 3rd. This isn't exactly the best way to function, but I can't seem to reset!
I've tried just staying up and then getting up with an alarm, but that only works for a day or so - and even then, I'll be exhausted in the afternoon. I'll stay up and then at bedtime my brain refuses to sleep.
I haven't been eating sugar - at all. I'm laying off the caffeine. I don't really eat within 4 hrs of bedtime, most of the time 5-6 hrs out.
(as I typed this out, I remembered that someone suggested melatonin when this was brought up before. I'll have to pick some up tomorrow!)
