I've read it somewhere, hard resetting.

how it works is don't sleep for one night, then on the next night, sleep at whatever time you want your sleeping cycle to be.

has anyone tried this?

lately I sleep at 6AM and wake up at 2PM. I have some trouble trying to sleep idk why, and I'd happily do this if it helps.

I've tried it numerous times. It never works.

I usually end up waking up at 1 in the morning or something and ****ing it up again.

Why not take numerous power naps rather than one long sleep?

It's been tried, it has long-term consequences for your body.

Why is it that these kinds of threads pop up at least once every month?

I've heard another theory that is supposed to reset your metabolic clock.

Fast for at least 12 hours before breakfast time in the destination country. Apparently it helps with jetlag.

There was this guy in the Pit who tried it a few weeks back. He gave up after a while.

This whole week my body clock has been completely off, today i'm trying (again) to reset my body clock, I didn't go to sleep last night cause I couldn't sleep, so the hard part is staying up all day today.

Get off your ass and start moving around. That should fix your problem of falling asleep.

But God doe

OT: It's not ALWAYS going to work, but it can work. I've done it. The key is to set an alarm for when you want to wake up so you don't oversleep and **** it up. As long as you get a reasonable amount of sleep (6-8 hours of good sleep), it'll work.

Does that actually work?

Also, odd coincidence that this thread is here today. I woke up at 2:30 this morning from a 3-4 hour nap and have to wake up at 7am tomorrow. Trying to stay up all day. Gonna be rough.

Best way is to fast. Don't eat anything for at least 12 hours, then have breakfast and go about your day. Your metabolism clock can override your sleep clock. Otherwise you'll just feel like shit and probably will anyway.

Because if TS is anything like me, it probably takes him 2-3+ hours to actually get to sleep.

I laid in bed Th Night for 3 hours before deciding to just go to the gym. THe gym was closed, which is BS. Then I worked for 14 hours and crashed at about 8pm.

The next day i fell asleep at 3am. Then again I wasn't resetting my clock intentionally, and I prolly could've slept at 8 again.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

From my experience, if I don't sleep for a whole night, I end up falling asleep somewhere in the middle of the day, and don't wake up till next morning.

I usually get myself out of a notcurnal pattern by sleeping for a really long time (over 12 hours) and waking up a couple hours before my desired waking time. Then I can just adjust it over the next couple days.
Problem with sleeping for a long time is you feel shit when you do get up, I normally have a headache.

^This, but everything I have read said at least 16-18 hours without eating, and to try to force yourself to sleep through the last 6-8 hours. That way you wake up, have breakfast and go about your day like normal.

I have a problem with this, so I usually just smoke a lot of meth and pass out super early when I want to reset.

It works for me if I can make it through the night. I end up doign it a few times a year, especially in the holidays where my sleep schedule gets really messed up.

Unravel a paperclip and stick the into a little hole at the base of your neck around the back. Push it until it clicks and wait 5-10 minutes for your sleep schedule to finish rebooting and you should be good.

That's the only thing that works for me when I'm off schedule. Once I was able to fall asleep earlier by taking melatonin but that doesn't work anymore
