Re: Sleeping issues...no trouble falling asleep but wake up too early...help?
I wake up every morning at 5:30. Well, maybe 4 or 5 mornings a week. Drives me nuts. Doesn't matter what time I go to bed either.
If I drink more than a drink or two, I wake up around 3 am, am up for an hour or two, then go back to sleep for a couple hours.
You don't need a lot more sleep than you're getting. This time of year when it gets light out so bloody early, it might help if you black your windows out somehow too.
You could also try melatonin. Although it's more for helping you get to sleep than for staying asleep. Nyquil, tea etc are mostly for the same thing so they may not help.
I would say, either stay up later and see if that helps, or just embrace your schedule as what your body wants to do and plan accordingly.
