Summer has passed, and for most of us, school or college has started. Alike most of you, I struggle to sleep on a schedule during the holidays - I sleep when I'm tired, and that generally revolves around sleeping between 3am and 6am in the morning. The impact of it's evident on my grades, and I feel we ought to have a thread discussing it.

Do you have any advice to share for a good night's rest? Does anyone have a nice story to tell? What do you dream about?

Post it here!

I dream once a month, probably. It's so rare, I hate it.

Recently after I finished junior college and looking for a job, I've been sleeping like you, around 3-4AM. Then I wake up like 10,11,12 the next morning. I sleep too much, but, there isn't much to do around here.

Set a reasonable time to get up at in the morning (9:00 for me), and get up when your alarm goes off. Without fail, no excuses, period.

I've never met anyone who's tried this and it hasn't worked for them unless they have some actual disease.

I haven't gone back to school yet but it will be interesting to see if I can get onto a decent sleeping pattern... :P Right now I just go to bed when I'm tired and wake up around 12pm. But I'll have some 9am classes when school starts :( Ew.

Last night I dreamt that I was a killer whale o_O It was awesome tbh.

Ah, the problem is actually waking up and not turning the alarm off. I've slept through thunderstorms and such before xD

I don't get enough sleep. I go to bed at about 12-1 AM, and then I get up at 6:30. After classes I'll usually take a good nap 1-4 hours.

I have struggled with sleeping for years and years. I've found the easiest thing for me to do now is try to sleep when I feel I'll be able to, since I sleep so little that it's hardly disruptive to my current schedule.

My sleeping pattern is pretty erratic, mostly due to my work hours sometimes switching from working for about 8 hours one night and then another 6 the next afternoon, fun stuff like that. As for advice? Don't make any deals or anything with yourself. Get up when your alarm goes off, don't decide to sleep for a couple more minutes, etc. Sometimes when I have real trouble sleeping I'll take a pill and make sure to have somebody that I can rely upon to wake me up in case I sleep through the alarm.

Unfortunately, if I do have dreams, I don't remember any of them when I wake up.

At this point, I go to bed around 11pm and wake up at 7-8am. Sometimes I can't get to sleep until 12am, though.

I was thinking of making a dream thread, so this'll be a great place to post my dreams. :thumbup:

I induced myself with a strange brand of circadian rhythm that falls somewhere between nocturnalism and insmonia last year when first semester started [beginning of Sept '10]. After about 6 months, I did manage to recognize the problem and began workingn on fixing it. It is now Sept '11 and I can happily say I fall asleep anywhere between midnight and 2am and wake up fully functional before 8:30 everyday. Just in time for classes to start up again. I'm quite proud of myself.

Perhaps I'll start a blog on how to attempt to treat sleep issues...

The only solution that I could come up with thus far would be to do some all-nighters successfully. I'll eventually fall into the habit of getting tired at the right time to go to bed >.<

Classes start at the same time every day for me so I typically go to bed between 12 and 3 and get up at around 10. And although I have a full schedule I have large gaps between classes. I love to take naps during the day because that's the only time I dream! Try sleeping exclusively on your back for short naps (like 1-2hrs). I think the sense of HAVING to get up to go to class may be what causes me to dream. It works for me... :)

If I take naps during the day, I wake up and I just feel really groggy and crappy for some reason.

Plus, naps are always a hassle cause I have to take my contacts out. :\

All my classes start at 1-1:30pm so I go to bed around 1-4am and get up at 11-12am every day. Seems to work for me.

This week was the first week I had to wake up at 7:30 am every day. It was rough, but I gradually went from sleeping at 4-5 am to 1-2 am. My trick is to just go to bed at 11 pm, no matter what.
God I wish I could go back to bed right now.

I've got to the habit of going to sleep this year usually around 10-10:30, and waking up at 6.

Get a kid.

Makes you wake up like a clockwork.

I go to bed at 11.30-0.30, wake up at 07.00, as does my 2-year old.

Granted, it's not ideal, sleeping in with a young kid is...well...nonexistent, but meh.

still getting like7 hours of sleep which is good enough. By the way, almost everbody dreams, but not everyone remembers all of their dreams. Especially after waking up, recollection of dreams start fading rapidly.

I know why my mind doesn't have dreams.

Nick you awake??? Can you do me a favor?!

It was about my dog too, who passed away in June. This is the third time dreaming about him, though. :sad:

I wake up without any problems when i'm in the middle of the University year. That's not to say i always get a good nights sleep - far from it. I usually wake up 3-4 times which i believe severely affects the quality of my sleep. During holidays i used to sleep from about 2-3 am until close to noon. Recently i've managed to somehow get myself to wake up early (at 8 am) and just not sleep the whole day until about 11 pm. This way i seem to manage to wake up at about 8 am everyday even on holiday. The main thing for me is, if i have something interesting to do i'll wake up, otherwise i'll just lay in bed since i know the day will be a dragg.

I don't like going to bed late and waking up late as it gives me the feeling i've wasted the day, and if i try to do during the night (past 11pm) mental activities i just don't give a good performance. My brain just works better during the day, hence i deduced i need to force myself to sleep at night and not during the day.

Would've posted earlier this morning, but I had classes. Which means I don't remember my most memorable dream I had last night.

It involved two T-rexes who would fight by locking fists (like punching each other's fist, but keeping them touching). I dunno how one beat the other. Anyway, I can't remember more on that subject. But Professor Lupin from the Harry Potter series was in it for a moment, and he was chasing a house dog around (the house dog was scared [cabbage]less) and I realized that it was because Lupin was a werewolf, and for some reason I figured house dogs fear werewolves the most. I went to tell him this, but he knew already and told me to keep quiet because the T-rexes weren't allowed to find out, else something bad would happen.
