I'm on a bad sleep schedule. I've been sleeping all throughout the day while being wide awake and full of energy all night.
What I want to do is stay awake all day today and go to bed at night.
Do you have any tips on staying awake? Keep in mind. I am very tired to the point where my vision becomes fuzzy and I have trouble speaking sentences.

Get a job. The obligation of being at work and getting paid will keep you awake.

Pop/Caffine will do. Try keep yourself busy, like go hang out with your friends outside or see your family members in order to make hours go by faster and next thing you know its already night time, and now you can get some sleep.

Cut a wound. Then sprinkle the wound with lemon juice, hot sauce, salt, etc.

I had this same problem when I first moved to a different state and was looking for a job. Someone on here mentioned getting a job and the obligation of the job will force you to into a regular sleep schedule; for me that absolutely did not work. I would often find myself dozing off and it was extremely hard keep my eyes open if I sat down for even a minute. I wish there was an easy solution to have a regular sleep schedule, but the only thing I found to work was having the self discipline to say I will go to bed at this time.

It was hard to do that for me, because I always felt I was missing out on something that was on TV or some random thing I wanted to look online would keep me awake. You just have to remind yourself that you can always do whatever you wanted to or look at can wait until tomorrow. Having a routine that you do before you go to bed will help your body recognize that now is the time to get sleepy. The hard part is sticking to this routine. The thought "just five more minutes" or some other excuse will always lead to a poor night's sleep just remember, it can wait until tomorrow. Then you need to wake up and find something to keep you busy the rest of the day whether it's work, chores, or something to keep you active. Drinking caffeine will help keep you awake, but don't drink too much past noon. It might be difficult for you to fall asleep later on.

Make sure you're exposed to lots of natural light. There's some kind of brain chemistry that will wake you up when it's bright, no matter how sleep-deprived you are. Light exercise such as walking or even doing household chores will also help.

I actually find it easier to sleep when exposed to a lot of natural light.

Is my brain broken
