“Messy Sleep Schedule”- Stepfan Hospedales

            With transition from physical classes to online classes, the demand to wake up early has faded away. Since my online classes are flexible, it is like I have room to go to bed anytime I want. Before it was really like the weekend and off days during the week I was going to bed kind of late, but now it is everyday I’m heading to bed like at 7:00 am in the morning. There is times I just stay up the whole day for some of my live session classes, then I will catch some sleep. Essentially, the main problem is I’m missing out on majority of my day, and my sleep schedule is all over the place. I know when everything goes back to normal, It definitely going to be a hard time attempting to sleep early. I even try to fall asleep early now, but still can’t seem to stay sleeping. Thirty minutes later, I’m up once again. 

I haven’t really found a concrete solution yet. Some of my friends recommend I download an “rain sounds” app to help me fall asleep, or watch a movie until I get sleepy. I can vouch for the movie idea(work for me before), but it doesn’t work most of the time. Ultimately, I would have to try different things out so I can at least be sleeping by 1 or 2 am, its’ a process.

    Hi Steph,
    Sleep is an issue at my house too.

    Hey Steph,
    I 100% relate with you. My sleep schedule has also been messed up due to remote classes. A suggestion I can give you is to kind of force your self to wake up early and then stay awake the whole day. Then you will get tired early. It’s hard but personally this has worked for me. But thank you for sharing, I feel others can relate to this as well.
