  1. In this case, we are dealing with either a critically disrupted sleep mode, or insomnia.

    If it is a matter of mode, then the person himself is well aware of this: he created the prerequisites for this confusion and gradually changed the mode so that his dream “turned over”. To return it, you need to make a reverse transition. There are two ways to do this:

    • Sharply. Just do not sleep one night (that is, in your case, one day), and go to bed on time for the next day.
    • Gradually. Shift your bedtime and wake-up times by one hour each day. Since you have a complete inversion of sleep, it doesn't matter whether you move in the direction of “earlier” or “later”.

    In both cases, the adjustment of the internal clock will be accelerated by a healthy lifestyle (in particular, proper nutrition and regular physical activity) and taking melatonin medications.

    When the problem is insomnia, the situation is completely different. Here, the reason for lack of sleep at night is a specific factor (or factors). These can be physical health problems, psychological problems, or a well-established stereotype of poor sleep. In mild cases of insomnia, following these recommendations helps:

    • Stay in bed for no more than 7 hours
    • Going to bed and getting up strictly according to the alarm clock, according to a clear schedule, the same on weekdays and weekends
    • Refusal to stay in bed without sleep: if you can't sleep, then you don't need to force yourself to sleep, and you should only go to bed when you feel sleepy
    • Quitting caffeine
    • Physical activity for 40-60 minutes at least 5 times a week
    • Relaxation techniques (any).

    In more serious cases, you may need the help of a specialist or deeper independent involvement. Read more about the fight against insomnia in the book by R. V. Buzunov, S. A. Cherkasova ” How to overcome insomnia. Healthy sleep in 6 weeks.”

  2. I would venture to assume that nothing “interesting” happens during the day, but boring duties occur that you “must” perform “for someone else”, and at night the brain (and the body after it) is perceived as “free” time that can be used for your own benefit. A good question in this case is: what is your ideal day, where you will have a good and interesting life from the very moment you wake up to the very moment you fall asleep?

  3. Probably because you don't sleep at night. The body is designed in such a way that if it understands that it will not achieve sleep, it thinks: “Well, OK, we're not sleeping, so we're doing something interesting” and stops wanting to sleep. If you want to sleep in the evening, but you think: “One more post, one more vidos, just a little more”, this is what happens. The night is good because nothing distracts you from the task: the birds have fallen asleep in the garden, the household does not interfere, the neighbors do not make noise, even the room is not visible. If it doesn't bother you, then live at night, as many students do before graduation. And if it interferes, then just get tired during the day (walk 10 km, for example), and in the evening do not miss the moment when you are drawn to sleep – do not start anything interesting and go to bed, even if at eight in the evening

  4. The fact that we want to take a nap in the middle of the day is quite normal, especially if we spent the whole night staring at the computer/book/work and anywhere else. I remember my supervisor saying ,” if we could sleep whenever we wanted (like cats), we would get enough sleep much faster than in 7-8-9 hours.”

    Even if you do not sleep at night, remember if you are not sleepy for hours at 9-10 pm? Surely at this time you are busy with something at home or think that it is still too early to go to bed. The body reacts to your unwillingness to sleep, loads up the remaining strength and continues to stay awake. Try to pay attention to your dream desire again in an hour and a half. Most likely, it will return again. And you can do this several times until you stupidly pass out.

  5. I completely agree with the answer from the top — everything directly depends on your routine, in particular, on your interest in everyday affairs. If you hate your studies, work, or practice, after all this, you will want to spend as much time as possible with “benefits”. That is, for your own pleasure. I think in this case, you should rethink your views on the urgent life of your own.

    In addition, there are people who like the dark time of the day much more than the light, this is purely individual, it's worth putting up with and enjoying it.

  6. This is not a general problem. Normally, a person has a regulation of the need for sleep, which depends on the internal clock and on the level of fatigue, on how much a person did not sleep. They usually coincide and allow you to sleep at night. At night, brain activity decreases and the need for sleep accumulates, at night there is a maximum opportunity to sleep.

    Stories about not sleeping at night and not sleeping during the day — this is most likely some kind of disease, perhaps insomnia, the patient does not get enough sleep at night, and the body requires sleep during the day.
