Waking up prematurily


Science breeds knowledge, opinion breeds ignorance
Hey guys :)

Was hoping someone could chime in..

On sunday i decided to change my sleep pattern, so i stayed up as long as i could, and essentially went to bed 12 hours earlier than usual:p In the following days i wake up after 2-3 hours, thinking ive slept a whole night, regardless of how sleepy i am.

Has anyone experienced something similar with some tips? Have i compromised my circadian rhythm or something? Not had this problem before

For normal.people, it usually takes a few days to adjust. If you don't, you could try helping it along with something like theanine, GABA, or phosphatidyl serine.
