Some times i sleep best when or if i fall asleep upright in my chair, but that i think is not good sleep, i think the media says one needs rem sleep, so how do your sleep patterns make you feel good?
And it seems I toss and turn more the Sunday night after the time has changed, just so the morning is so much MORE difficult for waking up that hour earlier. I think everyone was sleep-walking through the day today.Depends on the night. Some nights I sleep very soundly, while others I toss and turn and stay awake practically all night.

No need to rely on faith alone here...this is supported by scientific studies. A lot of people claim caffeine has no effect on them, but they don't even realize how dependent they already are on it, and how disruptive it is to their sleep patterns.I now believe that caffeine, even small amounts of it, is very detrimental to a normal and healthy sleep schedule. If you're routinely having trouble sleeping.... just try cutting it out for a week and see what happens.
Some advice from a former shift-worker. Make sure that your bedroom is dark, and use a white-noise generator of some kind - a small window fan or air-filter always worked for me. I had to work 12-hour rotating shifts, 3 days on and 3 days off and that was a constant, irritation. 6am to 6pm for 3 days, 3 days off (more or less) and then 6pm to 6am for 3 days, and so on. I was young and tough at the time. I don't think I could do that now.I started a new shift at work. I get up at 2:45 to start work at 4 am. If I want to get close to 8 hours I need to be in bed by 7pm. I'm not doing very well, getting about 5 hours a night right now. I hope I adapt sooner then later.
There were times when I had problems with oversleeping. My solution was an alarm clock near the bed, and a very loud alarm clock set for 5-10 minutes later that I could only silence by getting out of bed.I have a fear of oversleeping I think that causes most of my difficulties with sleep. I sleep much better on nights I know I don't have to wake up at a certain time.
