You should try changing your sleep habits gradually. Because you're sleeping so late during the day, you're not tired at night. Go to bed 30-45 minutes earlier, and do something restful, like read, for a bit. Don't watch television, play on the computer, or play video games and then go straight to bed. If you can fall asleep this time, then keep gradually moving the time you go to bed. Also, set your alarm to wake you earlier in the day. If you keep moving your bed and wake time forward, your body may adapt.

Although I know a lot of us don't do this, I've read articles about sleep that say you should always wake up at the same time each morning and try to go to bed at the same time each night, even on weekends or other days you may not have to get up. If you keep a consistent sleep schedule, you're more likely to be well-rested and sleep well.

I read that too its virtually impossible

You should try changing your sleep habits gradually. Because you're sleeping so late during the day, you're not tired at night.


Like trying to get a baby to sleep through the night limit the amount of sleeping during which should be your waking hours.

Depending on your arrangements your bed room is for be for sleeping period ( well we know others but thats a conversation for another time and place )
You need to let your body and mind wind down and focus should be on sleeping. Not talking on the phone laying in bed balancing your check book.

Get yourself ready for bed make sure everything is locked up for the night, Its handy to have a simple list of the things you need to do before going to sleep such as, bring the dog in, make sure all the doors are locked, stove is off you get the picture check the items off now you have nothing to worry about and you can now focus on getting into sleep mode.

As sari said the best is to do some reading I try not to watch T.V that just gets me worked up watching the news bad idea do some reading its the best you can control it. Give yourself enough time to unwind if you want to be a sleep at 10 start getting ready at 9.

Also its handy to have a notepad and pencil next to the bed if you think of something that needs attention jot it down if you get out of bed and go downstairs get paper and a pencil you will get distracted and end up staying up and doing other things.




Keep in mind this will take some time for your body and mind to get used to be patient and work at it.
