Not sure if this is your issue but I typically wake up at the same time each day regardless of when I went to bed. At night I revenge bedtime procrastinate (since I had no “self” time during the day). this cycle is hard to break for me but I’ve found a really good workout (or indulging into whatever self care you need) helps purge this bad routine and help be get to bed earlier.

There are probably several people on this app that need to operate with ZERO - 3 hours of sleep based on insomnia (and other factors). See a psychiatrist or learn to live with 4-5 hours of sleep. There was a time in my like where I would kill for that much sleep.

I was having this too a few months ago. I think it’s very common to have this anxiety. My mind was just racing all the time, and I’d wake up early. I think I tried to relax by telling myself “there’s nothing I can do in this moment” and framing it as - oh yay I get to sleep another 2 hrs. It’s an annoying situation, and it didn’t work 100% for me but it was better than nothing.

Establish a sleep routine that you stick to every night! Highly recommend you try incorporating a weighted blanket and/or melatonin (I like NatureMade 10mg gummies)

Try marijuana? When I have very intense days and difficulties with turning off end of the day, marijuana really helps. Or pure CBD.

Meditation before sleep with melatonin. Exposure to sunlight in the morning

Thank you everyone for the suggestions!

I been through this recently. And not even sure what’s the reason. May be anxiety. Use to wake up and no sleep for 2-3 hours. Total may be 4. And I am a cyclist so use to do heavy workouts to fall asleep but no help. I kept counting my breath for a while ( form of meditation) listened to apps for yog Nidra (meditation) which helped me. That phase is over last month all of sudden. I guess we take lot of stress unknowingly. Try to meditate in those sleepless hours it might help.
