2021.12.03 06:31 Mean_Variance I'm at my wits end with chronic early awakening - what is the appropriate behavioral self-help intervention?

Gender: M
Age: 29
Height: 195cm
Weight: 92 kg
Location: Germany
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Primary complaint and duration: early awakening (~3 years)
Existing medical conditions:

No smoking, occasional drinking, occasional mdma / ketamine / speed / cocaine use (3x a year, complaint occured in phase of abstinence of about 1 year)
Current medication: Trazodone 200mg, weaning off to be replaced with Mirtazapine 15mg
I managed to keep my insomnia at bay with medication and habitual changes. Aside from physiological assessments and a change in medication, what are the habitual changes that I can employ to manage early awakening?
Long Post incoming!
Personal History:
So I've been dealing with bad sleeping habits basically ever since I was a teenager. Insomnia started reducing my quality of life as I moved out and my parents weren't there to wake me up every morning, which lead to me missing classes, sometimes even exams. Fast forward 10 years and, with the help of my psychiatrist and inspired by Sleep Restriction Therapy, I formed the following habits to succesfully manage my insomnia:
This has kept since August 2021, the following complaint has prevailed since 2018:
Thanks to my routine and the medication (prescribed by my psychiatrist), falling asleep within 30 minutes of bedtime has become my new normal. My quality of life has improved dramatically.
However, in addition to my insomnia, since 2018 I have trouble staying asleep:
Needless to say that I do not feel fully rested the next day.
Yes, that does scream sleep apnea / nycturia and I will attend a sleep lab ASAP. However, appointments are scarce and I might have to wait for another 6 months to get an appointment. While waiting for appointments in a sleep-lab, I want to use behavioral changes to at least be able to fall asleep again when I wake up. All self-help resources on that matter mostly address insomnia, which luckily isn’t an issue for me at the moment.
Here's what I've done on that front so far:
So basically my question is: How would a Sleep Restriction Training / behavioral approach towards my Problem look like? Should I deliberately set an alarm after 6 hours and then extend the sleeping time? Should I get out of the bed when I can’t sleep? Any other things I could do?

2021.12.03 06:31 FatNSneaky Friendly advice to recruiters

Don't dwell on why we aren't with our previous companies anymore. Don't put any stock in contacting them for a reference. Focus on what we can bring to the table, focus on what we personally accomplished while working for that company and how it applies to the job we are applying for. If we've earned rewards for that company and no longer employed with them, that should be more of a red flag on them than us.
Contact my previous employer and you'd probably get missed a lot of time and see that as a red flag to skip over. What they wouldn't tell you is the constant team shuffling where you no longer felt connected to your coworkers. They also wouldn't tell you about everything they’ve done to drop team morale such as not reversing a negative survey even if the customer verbatim stated they hit the wrong response. Or the name and shame they do internally through email. Probably wouldn't tell you how I cycled to work in the cold with neuropathy (nerve damage) because I don't drive while 90+% of the staff were warm working from home. How they lied I would be sent back home within a month after a technical issue sent me back to site in the first place. Confident you wouldn't be told about theft on property and the lack of helping. Pretty sure they wouldn't mention they stripped my logins to work then claimed I quit during mental health awareness month. How many people can take back-to-back calls in customer support and be mentally fine after learning their mom contracted a deadly virus?
So no, don't waste your time or our time discussing our past employer. We're applying to work for you, not discuss a toxic relationship with an HR department.
That is all.

2021.12.03 06:31 philipin4k Any recommended Porter songs?

I started listening to Madeon more than two years ago, and in this time i discovered how great "Good Faith" and "Adventure" are, and i became a fan. Ever since i sometimes see how fans are also listening to Porter Robinson, and this year he released the new album and i thought i might as well give it a shot, but neither of the songs stood out for me, so that's why i'm here. Any Porter songs that i should definitely listen?

Bumped into this beautiful vlog on EDG’s official Youtube channel. It’s a lengthy vlog of EDG’s championship tour, with some great moments, insight, and action.
It’s well produced, with good subtitles and captions so we can understand what’s going on. Highly recommend if you’re either an LPL fan, or a league fan who needs some good content during the long offseason weeks.
