    Best to try and eliminate all wakefulness during the sleep window roshall. for now, it is about trying to re-establish positive associations with bedroom and rid possible arousing one's.

    What on earth do you do from 3.30am for the rest of the day? You must be exhausted by lunchtime!

    I would think you could change your window to going to bed later and getting up later as long as you keep to your 5 hour slot but I wouldn't chop and change it too much. Would you prefer to get up later in the morning? Is that okay Dr. Kyle?

    Great earlyriser. Since this is likely your internal biological preference, you should try and aim for a similar consolidated sleep window position. It might be worthwile just changing it gradually (if you want to delay the time at which you get up) say by 15 minutes or 30 minutes and maintain that pattern for a week or two, and then reassess. Improtant to keep it consistent though.
