Set aside a week or two that you can focus on your sleep. It will be important to pick a time that you can sleep as much as you need to at night, without other obligations encroaching on that time. This may be best accomplished during a vacation. Regardless, it is very important that you not allow disruptions or changes to your sleep schedule during this period.
