Does this happen to you guys, too??
You go to bed, say, at 10 PM.
You wake up.
You're refreshed, energized, fully rested, ready to tackle your day.
You glance at the clock.
It's 1 AM.
Back to bed.
Fight with your mind for an hour:
You ARE going back to sleep.
It's not even CLOSE to time to get up.
You don't need to re-write that report.
You have recieved no faxes in the last 3 hours.
Stop worrying about the caseload tomorrow.
Stop worrying about the taxes you sent off 10 days late.
Too late to fix it.
Go back to sleep.
Finally, you sleep.
From about 2 AM until your waking time.
Much longer than the 3 hours sleep you had gotten before 1 AM.
When you awoke: refreshed, energized, fully rested, ready to tackle your day.
You're exhausted, uneasy, grumpy, wishing you could crawl back into bed, your head hurts a little, you curse the sleeping Gods for making you happy as a clam at 1 AM and angry at the world when you SHOULD be up.
