    I've got college starting in like a week and three days. And i want to get my sleep pattern back to semi normalcy. But if i go to bed before 3/4 i start to feel like i should be doing some other stuff...even though i have to get up at 7am. It's like my body refuses to let me sleep before then. And i'm starting to become a zombie because of it. I don't know how to get my pattern back v_v

    actually, as cornball as it may sound...relaxation tapes can be a great
    help. well, I should say they can be for me. sometimes :)
    sometimes is better than no times.

    I have had to listen to the 'best one' I have sometimes over and over
    until I start to give in to the idea that the speaker or 'guide' is essentially
    taking the listener thru really slow muscle relaxation techniques,
    creative visualization and mostly, I think the best part is the focusing
    on yoiur breathing. if you can actually do that, long enough, and
    relentlessly enough for the rest of your brain to stop yakking at you
    (at least that is what mine does) you focus on only breathing in and out
    and eventually your body realizes how tired it is and falls asleep.

    quieting the old gray matter is the trick. I have a really hard time
    with it. anyway, just a thought. tapes or CDs might help.

    Listen some Beethoven sonatas before you go to bed:)
    Moonlight and Pathetique sonata could be helpfull:)

    I had this problem when I started college... when I try to go to bed earlier than 2/3am It takes hours for me actually to fall asleep..

    What works best for me is a REALLY hot shower and warm milk!
    I also have some 'meditation' type sound clips that I listen to with my eyes closed it helps me drift off
