In brief: Just wait...

Normal body function has hormonal patterns.
Disruption of these patterns without significant consequences down the road are rare. As you age, you will find it tougher to deal physically and mentally with the night owl thing, plus trying to reverse to a more "normal" pattern gets tougher with age. Please seek advice.
