"How to Become an Early Riser"
i was reading the article "How to Become an Early Riser"
to help me get a better sleep
for the past few days i havent been able to fall asleep when i want to.
because i have to wake up at 6am i try to sleep at around 10-11pm but even when i try i cant fall asleep and i eventually fall asleep at around 2-3am
I think it's because the past weeks before that ive been sleeping at around 2-3am and my body is used to sleeping at that time
is there any way to help me with my problem

I think it is in the article: Don't go to sleep if you are not tired and get up at 6am anyway. Drag yourself through the day for a few days and your body will adjust. Diet is very important by the way if you want to have the strength to get up at 6 in the morning everyday.

Hi, I can give you a first-hand experience, since I am after this kind of transition myself.
Last year I was going to bed at 2-3 am and it was a struggle for me to crawl out of bed before 9. Now I go to sleep around midnight and get up before 6:30 no problem whatsoever.
For me a crucial thing to do was to start a job. It gave me enough motivation to drag me out of bed early in the morning, because I didn't want to disappoint my students. So maybe you have to change something else in your life and your sleep pattern will follow suit...
Moreover, you can develop some habits which proved helpful for me to make me tired when I wanted it.
1. Exercising in the early evening - at first it increases your energy level, but then offers you some deeper sleep
2. Switching off my computer well before going to bed - it's difficult to fall asleep when your eyes are still glimmering and your mind is rattling because you've been working/playing/watching a movie on your computer
3. Allowing myself some quiet time in bed (for example reading a book). This way I was not worrying if I can fall asleep in a matter of minutes, but it came to me just naturally. Once and then I fell asleep with my mp3 still on or with my PDA in my hands.
It worked fine for me. Hope you'll find it helpful
