Hi
Usually before an exam I do the following to sleep longer (and getting to fall asleep faster):

Stretch out for minimum 5 minutes.
Use a shampoo with herbs in it to stay asleep longer.
Use 10mg of Kestine (also called Evastin, Ebaste and Aleva)

1mg time released melatonin from Now foods.
About a half milligram of sublingual melatonin.

Foods that I eat:
Tomatoes.
Avocado
Salmon Fish
Some salad
And I also drink some milk and water.

I also avoid sugar and caffeine the whole day.

In addition to all this I try to getting at least 1 hour of exercise.

However, before my last exam I woke up after only 4 hours, what could be the reason for this? It is easy to fall asleep, but I really need to sleep for a longer time.
Thanks in advance

It sounds like you are going all the right things! Probably anxiety before the exam woke you up sooner than usual.

Exercising late in the day will cause sleep disturbance.

Going to bed too early, ofc, will make you wake up too soon.

Sleeping in a totally dark room (blackout shades or eyeshade, no lighted alarm clock or radio) helps sleep quality. Good luck!

Another thing that keeps people from falling asleep is the use of screen devices(phones, ipod, TV and computer) too close to bedtime.
You should allow at least an hour between the time you shut down the electronics and the time you go to bed.
I went to a sleep doctor and she recommended this, and that you spend that hour reading a not-too-exciting book or magazine.
Also, try to go to sleep at the same time every night.

Just in case you wondered: its a misconception that sex helps girls fall asleep. Actually for most girls it keeps us awake and gives us MOAR energy.

^ I dunno, a guy with a nice broad shoulder who'll let me fall asleep on it after = best snooze ever! Maybe not immediately after.. Smile

All good advice. I also find that I need to have eaten properly in order to sleep deeply. You need a certain amount of energy to be able to sleep, funny enough. You can't be overtired and running on empty. I think its because so much rebuilding/renewal goes on.

The thing that helped me the most back when I had serious problems sleeping was not watching the clock and being really careful not to worry about how I'd feel or look or perform the next day. Your body is at rest, and if your mind is too, that's PLENTY.

You'll sleep when you really need to. In the meantime, your body can easily make up for it through food, or air (deep breathing), or doing something you really love doing - all that will GIVE you the energy you need.

I worked for a huge festival one year where the staff all go non-stop day & night practically, for 2 weeks solid during the fest, never mind the weeks & months prior. They kept asking me if I'd eaten and if not sENDING me away (mid-job!) to the food tents. I learned a valuable lesson about getting by without sleep, by making sure that I'd fueled myself properly with food (& fun!). And a little booze in there. Smile
