In my clinical experience herbal therapy and acupuncture would help a great deal. Massage therapy would also alleviate hyper active central nervous system.

I find that I get really tired around 7pm (ironically, just the time I usually start teaching ) then get a second wind around 10pm, and I can stay up, happily, energetically, until 3 or 4am. Then I seem to get my best sleep between 7am and 11am- heavy, dream-filled sleep. Usually up by 10 or 11 and fine until I hit that 7pm slump.
I'd like to switch to a more 'normal' schedule. .....
Anyone successfully change their sleep schedule? Or should I just go with what feels natural? And has anyone else had this problem/ do you think it's related to living on the opposite side of the globe from where I grew up?

Just love the night, feeling safe and inspiring, and can concentrate a lot!
NonTocareLeTete wrote:So funny you should ask- I was just thinking how much my sleep has improved. I always considered myself a night person, but decided to make a change. Called my manager and asked to switch to day classes. She said no, and I said, alright, I'll just quit, I got a job offer for more money to work nights elsewhere. But I'll stay if you give me days. She switched me to days AND gave me a raise
That was over a year ago and, kid you not, I go to bed around 8pm these days. I wake up (naturally) between 4:30 and 5. And I feel AMAZING. And when a late night throws off my sleep schedule, I can get back on track within a day or two.
I still wake up at least once during the night but it doesn't bother me too much.
