For instance, if we consistently sleep in later or stay up late, we may not get sun light appropriately to re-synchronize us. People with depression often have insomnia which can potentially affect circadian rhythms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can sleeping too much- I have depression- cause brain cells to die or to shut down or cause delay in thinking?
Can taking 10, 000 iu of vit D3 for a few months reset my sleep-cycle if I have delayed sleep phase syndrome?
Probably not: There is no evidence to support vitamin d to shift sleep phase. Bright light at the right time can do it and high doses of melatonin timed right can do it, but easiest is to stay awake throughout the night and next day (around 36 hours or so), then go to sleep at the desired time and you should be on that cycle. ...Read more

No: Delayed sleep phase syndrome (dsps) results from a pathological alignment of one's sleep-wake schedule with one's internal biological clock. While moving to a different time zone could temporarily alleviate dsps, it is likely that one would slip back into a delayed sleep-wake schedule within weeks. See my other answers on dsps for effective treatments of dsps (am bright light, pm melatonin). ...Read more
Would moving to a different time zone help a person deal with dsps (delayed sleep phase syndrome)?
No: The problem is not as simple as the problem of being in the wrong time zone. Rather the problem is that the person is not responding appropriately to the cues in their environment that should be synchronizing their rhythms to the current time zone. In other words, a move would relatively quickly end up with the same delayed sleep phase. ...Read more
