Stay up a whole night, fall asleep at 9pm the next day, set your alarm for 5am the next day. I have a friend who works a swing shift, and he adjusts by staying up for over 24 hours to reset his body for the new schedule. Probably not the best solution, though.
Or you could just not be a pussy, and set an alarm (or three) for 5am on the first day.
What’s your sleep schedule like now? Radically different from 9pm-5am?[/quote]
I work 10 hr shifts Mon-Thurs 10pm -8am but I dont like sleeping my weekends away so that is what I do for the most part. i stay up Fri, might take a 2 or 3 hr nap at 4pm get up at 6 or 7 and see whats up for the night. sometimes Im in bed my 9 sometimes Im not. But I keep a normal scedual on the weekends and go back to nights during the week. But im use to it and dont sleep alot any way and never really had a problem waking up on my own. So I would try getting less sleep overall
