I spent every day for years propped up on pillows on my bed. I could see out my window to the left. My messy closet was to the right. Looking straight ahead I saw a television, a messy desk and a dresser.

    Good Morning! Actually I have been up over an hours now (since 4 am).

    Climbing the stairs to my apartment raises my heart rate above my presumed aerobic threshhold, so I lay down as soon as I get in. Tonight I got in at 7:30 and feel asleep shortly after laying down. By the time I woke up (before 3 am), I had been having weird dreams and had a headache. I didn’t feel like getting out of bed until 4, but had no difficulty staying awake. I feel pretty decent now.

    A few days ago I didn’t get in until 11 (I spend evenings with my Mother) and also fell asleep. I still was awake and ready to get up at 4. I spent a few hours on the computer and eating/taking supplements. When I did go back to bed, I was not able to sleep, but became sleepy and started dozing in the afternoon when I wanted to get up.

    It looks like my innate sleep cycle has switched to early evening to 4 am. Unfortunately that is not a very practical sleeping schedule.

    I've done an atlas "repositioning" therapy called atlas profilax (Click here for PR thread), which gave me numerous benefits, including improved sleep. My neighbor had this done 3-4 years ago, and he was just telling me tonight that before he did the AP, he was a night owl, staying up till 12 to 1 to 2 in the morning. From the very first day of his atlas being shifted, he began to get really sleepy by 9:00-10:00, and has continued to this day. He said he sleeps as much, just got his rhythms shifted by a few hours.
