I can't figure it out for myself.
Same! Does this bother you, or are you comfortable with it?I have irregular sleeping patterns, I'm up all night by default. But in any case, I pace my house in the dark because of anxiety. I think of old memories and new ideas. Nothing specific I worry about to keep me up. Just random thoughts.
Ah, same mostly. I've come to accept that I'm not going to be a routine sleeper. It is odd - I feel like I am tackling problems that no one else is tackling, and thus I somehow justify that it is fine for my brain to be on. When it comes to productivity, diminishing returns are still returns, in my opinion.various problems pertaining to models and algorithms at work. Last few months have been pretty bad – little sleep, bad diet, lost my workout regime. I have even sometimes resorted to alcohol just to stop the fucking brain from spinning at max speed constantly.
Same. What do you do when you must work but feel sleepy, yet have too many thoughts to actually sleep? How do you push through that?Well I work at night lol.
Lol "pretty much everything". I feel you there.pretty much everything
also my cat
i frequently sit in bed listening to music and just keep skipping to more music. i have some success sleeping if i turn off all the lights and put some rain sounds on, then close my eyes even though i have no intention of sleeping.
funnily enough turning off all stimulus helps you sleep
I just adjust by not sleeping then crashing and sleeping. For example I can finish at 6am and go home. I do stuff then I figure its 12 am and I am not sleeping so I stay up go to work and come home at 6 am again. I stay up till say 9 am and then sleep until say 7pm then go to work etc.Same.

That sucks man. Nightshifts fuck up your circadian rhythm, fuck with your ability to produce adequate levels of hormones / your nervous and endocrine system get shafted hard. My mother used to work the night shift / sleep during the day, se can't sleep without pills now and is a nervous sleep deprived wreck even after retiiring.Well I work at night lol.
