There are times whereby we won't be left with other options than to just stay awake for the whole night for the main purpose of fulfilling a particular purpose. As they do say that "excess of everything is bad or dangerous" since it can lead to detrimental and hazardous health effects if one isn't really careful because sleeping helps to relax the brain and whole body system.
Some people may also decide to sleep very late as a result of the unproductive activities they engage themselves in such as playing games, watching movies or chatting. Even though this habit seems to be a bad habit, there are ways you can modify your activities such that it won't affect your sleeping time.
I will suggest the below remedies for late night sleep and I hope it will be of great help to everyone experiencing the same.
- COMPLETE YOUR TASKS DURING THE DAY: There are times whereby we are actually the cause of our late night sleep due to our habit of procrastination. There are actually some tasks you can actually complete during the day but you prefer to procrastinate to late hours during the night which affects your sleeping duration. It is always advisable to do what you can do during the day in other to avoid anything that can disturb your sleep during the night.

It is advisable you make a time table about how you want to spend your whole day including the number of hours you intend to accomplish your tasks and never forget to select a suitable time for sleeping at night when making your time table.
-DO AWAY WITH DISTRACTIONS : There are actually some unproductive things we engage ourselves in during the night which prevents us from sleeping early. Some of this activities include playing games, chatting, watching movies, etc.. These activities can be postponed till the next day but we get occupied with such activities.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.
I have experienced the same problem and it can become quite serious if you let it carry on. I was at the same point as you a few weeks ago and there is only one way to fix it.
I suggest you choose a weekend to reset your body and that is going through the night and not sleeping. This will make you want to go to bed earlier than normal the next night and you will wake up in routine again.
I have to do this every few months or so as I get out of routine because of the time I spend on Steem. I think it happens to most users on here at some point. It starts to encroach on your normal life and we mustn't let that happen.
Just keep remembering to try and set a time that you should be in bed so it doesn't happen to often. having one or two late nights won't kill you but once it becomes a regular pattern you will need to repeat the body reset by going through the night. I have tried other ways and they don't work.
After you have used this technique you will find that you have clearer thoughts and feel like a new person again.
