I am in college, and lately I have noticed that my sleeping/energy patterns are all screwed up. I usually wake up at about 8 - 8:30, get really tired and “crash” at around 11AM (though I am in class, so I can’t take a nap), 2PM (again, in class, so no napping), 8PM (can’t sleep… too many people making noise in dorms, plus too early), and then I don’t get tired again till 2AM, when I can finally go to bed. But this seems like it would be really hard on my body, only getting 6 hours of sleep a night. But if I attempt to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like 11 or 12, then I just lay in bed staring at my lava lamp for 2 hours because I can’t sleep. If I try to take a midday nap at 3, 4, 5, I can’t because my body is very much awake at that time.
So, I guess my GQs are: Why is my body like this? Does it hate me? Is this unhealthy, or bad for me? And what could I do to remedy the situation?
