Start heading to bed around 10:30 pm and try forcing sleep till 1:30 am. Nothing.
About that time I decided to heed the advice I've read and just get up a while and start all over again to find my missing sleep.
I got up and waited till I started to feel a bit sleepy which was about 3am.
I sat on my bed staring at the alarm clock set for 5:30, which was just over 2 hours away and made the decision there and then, to turn off the alarm.
And then I fell into bed and a deep sleep.
The things we go through to get some rest.
