I'm going to start a new job in about 3 weeks and I think I will need to get up around 5 or 6am. Right now, i have a twofold problem- I am a night owl and get a second wind around 10 (and find it difficult to go to sleep early) and for the next few weeks i am going to have to wake up at different times.
My dog is diabetic and needs insulin shots every 12 hours. Right now she gets a shot around 530am, and then I get back to sleep at 630 and sleep til 9 (which I know is not great) . I need to shift that to 2 am for when I move and she will get her medicine on my moms shift. That means I have to go back about 30 mins a day and then stay at 2am. Then soon after Ill be shifting back to 5 am.
So, i am going from waking up at 5 to 2 then back to 5 while being a night owl who normally prefers to stay up until 2am.
Any ideas how to make this bearable so that I am not fried when I start work? Already taking magnesium and using sleep mask and earplugs. Not a fan of 4hb 20 minute polyphasic sleep method.
