I have sleeping, focusing, concentrating problems . I don't know what is wrong with me ?

I'm constantly tired and i can't get to sleep properly because i usually wake up about 2 or 3 times throughout the night. However, sometimes i can sleep and i'll just sleep for a long time and when i wake up i'll still feel very tired. When i get home from school usually the first thing i do is eat something and then i just fall asleep again, or sometimes i don't eat something as i'm that tired i don't even feel the want to. This doesn't help with my school work or my grades either as i never have time to do my work at home and when i do i never have enough will power to make myself do my coursework or my homework. I think my sleeping also may affect my appetite as it's never too brilliant and i don't often feel that hungry. When i'm actually in school i don't mind too much because i have my friends there but when it comes to working i find it hard, i don't find the work hard necessarily but i find it difficult to concentrate and focus on the set task; I often get headaches during lessons because of this also i think. I hate waking up for school because i know the day i have ahead of me will just drag me down as i know i'm behind with various different subjects in the respect that my coursework is incomplete or in the respect that i just don't put enough effort into the subject anymore as i don't physically think that i can. I also have fairly bad confidence problems, i'm very self-conscious but when it comes to doing a speech or a presentation or even just reading aloud in the classroom it actually sickens me, i hate it; it makes me feel faint and almost like i'm actually about to cry and it sends me into quite an awful shakey unhappy state at times. I usually feel quite low throughout school days due to the fact i'm behind on work, i try my best to put it to the back of my mind and stay happy which my friends often help me to do and so does music, i love to listen to it or just play on my guitar, it makes me really happy because it's what i enjoy doing, i love it. I usually have to try to work out when i can get my work done but even then when i say i'll do it i don't end up doing it. Also due to my sleeping problems i'm late for school nearly every day which doesn't help me with my punctuality reports that will be sent off when i apply for college which will only be next year when i have to do that as i'm 15 years old. I just can't motivate myself at all with everything i've got going on at once really. I'm not too sure what's wrong with me.

Well heres some things that can help you. First you need a full night's sleep and heres how its different than just doing so. First go clean your room and make your bed, it seems like a chore, but i promise you it will help

Tomorrow, u need to make yourself as tired as possible. just do something that will wear you out and make you want to pass out. But one important thing is to stay awake.

When you get home from school, go eat a big meal, not a snack that consists of a sandwhich or some chips with candy, something with meat and rice

Up to this point it will probably be around 4-6 PM . What you need you do from then on is to avoid your room as much as possible. This might seem wrong to say, but do not do any Homework either. in fact forget about school once you step through your door after school is over. your mind must be completely clear. Keep yourself awake and make sure you dont sit down becuase that leads to sleeping.

When it is 7:00 P.M go to your clean room, do not turn on the lights, and just go under your covers. What im going to tell you next to do is might seem weird and uneccisary, but will help. Use only one and thinnest pillow you have that will still make you comftourble and be very light, make sure your face isnt tilted to any angle except strait forward where your head is. so if you sleep on your side, your eyes should be leveled to the other side of your wall without being tilted. From there remember one roflmao thing and have a good lol and then fall asleep.
Tomorrow you will wake up early in the morning, only get out of bed if you need to pee, but DO NOT TURN ON ANY LIGHTS even if it means you pee on the seat. when your done doing your buisness look at the time, and then just go lye down on your bed and maybe fall back to sleep but be careful not to oversleep. with me, i constantly check the time 2 make sure im not late for school, but what you might want to do is to a have a QUIET alarm. nothing loud enough to be herd outside of your room. If you still feel very sleepy tomorrow durring the day, instead of going 2 sleep at 7 p.m go to sleep at 6:30

Trust me man, im 16 years old and have sleeping problems to, and i guarentee this will work if you do exsactly what i told you. if theres something that i said that was unclear feel feel to reply to me about it and il gladly evaluate on what i was saying

meditation for like an hour a day can do wonders. It will help you focus, increase your awareness and give you more energy. Make sure you are meditating properly though, and not falling asleep or daydreaming as that will hinder your progress. Clear your mind, get into that in between sleep and awake state and stay there with a clear mind and it will help you a lot.
