In brief: Day / Night reversal

See your primary care doc to see if there is anything medical interfering with your sleep, but it may just be that you have gotten into a behavior pattern that is hard to change.
If so, you will need to keep yourself from sleeping during the day no matter what, until you are able to sleep at night. For tips on better sleep, go to http://www.Stanford.Edu/~dement/howto.Html.

In brief: You may need

To reprogram your internal sleep clock.
Even if you are tired, get up in the morning and try not to go to sleep until night time. Try to exercise a couple of hours before bedtime. It may take a few days till you can shift your internal clock back to a night time sleep routine.

Try to get exposure to sunlight in the morning, even if the best you can do at first is to keep your window shades open to let sunlight in to help you wake up.
