    Are you currently following a regular sleep window? If so, when does it start and when does it end? Roughly how many hours of sleep are you getting at night? If you provide some more information, I will try to offer some suggestions.

    I have just  started following a sleep window.  My window is 11-6 hoping to get my typical 6 hours.  Despite my best intentions I micro dozed last night while watching tv before bed.  I fell asleep around 11 and woke at 1:30, got out of bed at 2:30 worked on a puzzle until 3:30 then got light slap 3:30 – 6.  My biggest problem is that I have an anxiety disorder that is triggered when I wake up in the middle of the night or can’t fall asleep in the beginning of the night.  My anxious brain can easily over ride my sleep drive, this is my main problem.  I do a lot of self care, talk therapy, yoga, transcendental meditation, daily exercise, clean diet, no alcohol or drugs, no prescription drugs…

    Good to hear from you again! A sleep window of 11:00 PM to 6:00 AM (seven hours in duration) suggests that you are averaging around six-and-a-half hours of sleep at night. Does that sound about right?

    Are you also making sure that you get out of bed by the same time every single day?

    If you regularly struggle to stay up until the start of your sleep window, you may benefit from shifting it a little so it starts earlier in the night (and ends earlier in the morning).
