    Getting better sleep

    Wasn't sure where to post this, figured sleep is supplementing gains. Anyways, I know they say to get ~8 hours a sleep every night to help the recovery process but I just can't get my body to sleep longer than 6, maybe 7 hours. I work the evening shift right now so I go to bed around 12-1 and my body just gets up at like 6 or 7. Is this an ok amount of sleep? Any tips on getting better, longer sleep?

    If you can get melatonin, I’ve found it’s helping a lot recently. I’m using Hi-Tech Pharmaceutical’s 10mg phased release melatonin as I managed to find it on an American site as it’s prescription-only in the UK

    Do you block out light so that you can't tell the sun is coming up? Any noises that pick up in the morning to tip you off? Use white noise?

    Yeah that's what I've heard. I'll give it a try.

    I have a blackout curtain up and I use a fan every night but my roommates do get up around 6 so that's probably why. Just wish I could sleep heavier. Maybe the melatonin will help with that ????

    Melatonin should help, works for a lot of people.

    Aside from adding supps, I would also try and cut out stimulants as early in the day as possible. Even moving meals earlier in the day can help sleep better.

    Yeah I started eating my last meal a little earlier than I usually do about a week ago to help my sleep. I also turned my fan to the highest setting to drown out roommates noise last night and I got a good 8 hours in. I'm still gonna try the Melatonin though.
