There is a circadian rhythm for all living organisms. It is a 24 hour cycle rhythm and the biological clock within that individual adapts to this rhythm. You have set your rhythm in a particular way which suits your modes of work. To change this it will have to be a gradual process. You will have to reset the rhythm. For e.g. if you want to start getting up earlier, you will have to sleep earlier by say one hour and set an alarm for the time you want to get up. Continue this for some time. Then reset by another hour and repeat the process. This way you can reset your biological clock.
