In brief: Depends
You can stay awake later and later to get your sleep cycle back on track, or if easier stay up one might all might.
Elatoninay help readjust you cycle as may the prescription drug roxerem(off label use but it works) or tak other prescription sleep aids short term. Try to stay awake during the day and keep to a regular nightly sleep time. Don't use alcohol it will make it worse.
