Default sleep times.

I dont know if this counts for a fitness & nutrition type post but I seem to never get enough sleep.
ill go to bed at like 2 and wake up at 10-11 and still be tired as hell.

but if i go to sleep at like 12 i still wake up at 10 and still am tired.

the only days im not tired after waking up is the times i wake up past noon.

is there any way to train yourself to be less tired when you wake up or something?

I can't keep a decent sleep schedule for any prolonged time. Like, just since recently here was my schedule:

I slept from 5am-7am Friday morning after waking up at 5pm Thursday night, did a few things and got on lifetilt, slept from 7pm-3am, and then again from 330am-7am.

This is basically how every day goes until some certain time when I'll have the same time where I sleep and wake up (i.e. 1am-10am or something). It definitely hurts my lifestyle, but I can't think of any way to make myself tired so I sleep at a normal time or whatever. I'd just go with whatever your body wants so as not to deprive your body of sleep or something.

Id say just go to bed at a certain time, if you dont sleep oh well at least you are there. so get in bed at 1 turn all distractions off. set your alarm for 10 and wake up no matter how tired you are. then eventually you will be tired at 1

Do a routine of exercise early in the morning. This will make you feel with more energy during the day.

Heyz,

I've been an on and off insomniac since I was very little for various reasons. My observations on tiredness:

1: Masturbation and Sex result in tiredness, if I've done either the night before I don't feel 'fresh' when I wake up, but tired.
2: Same with alcohol, weed + many drugs, with the exception of things like shrooms.. speed, e, mdma UNTIL the comedown.
3: Same with fatty foods like pizza.
4: When my mind and body feel healthier I sleep better and feel better the next day.
5: Sleeping for longer than needed periods of time causes me to feel tired when I do wake up.
6: Continuously drinking caffeinated substances can result in continual tiredness/fuzzyness.
7: Sadness, depression, unhappy states of mind contributes to tiredness, limited energy levels.
8: Tiredness causes sadness, depression, unhappy states of mind - like 85% of manic depressive episodes occur as a consequence of tiredness, adverse sleep patterns etc.

So obv. to be less tired do the opposite/dont do those things.

I've been sleeping 5am-2pm the last few weeks. But I woke up at 12:30 today. I'm going to try to add 1 hour to that each day until I am waking up at 8am. I really liked it when I was waking up early and getting SO much work done before noon. And this way I can go workout at a non-busy time

cutting down on all of these had a huge effect on me. i've been sleeping much much better and w/ greater consistency lately.

Don't sleep in on weekends is a big one for me. Every day I get up at 10 AM, 9 if I have an early lecture.

Also don't browse leggo/2+2 before going to bed. It is far too easy to be tired at 10 PM then fall into a funk where you just sit in front of your computer doing nothing for 6 hours.
