Get Enough Sleep

I haven't been getting enough sleep lately. Like, pretty much for the last few weeks. So it's little wonder I'm feeling kind of sick today.

I'm taking my vitamins, taking EmergenC, eating extra garlic, and I just bought zinc lozenges today. Fingers crossed that I can ward off a big illness, because I really want to go camping as planned this weekend!

I'm also heading to bed by 8 today. I know, 8 is kind of ridiculous! But hopefully a long night's sleep will boost my immune response. Sounds plausible, right? Or even if that doesn't happen, at least extra sleep will improve my mood. When I get good sleep, I'm less easily frustrated; I'm more patient; I'm generally more lighthearted and silly. It definitely affects my happiness level.

So now, I'm off to get ready for bed. My amazing husband is taking the reigns for the evening so I can rest. He's such a lifesaver.

How do you get yourself to bed at a reasonable hour? Are there any other night owls like me who have to get up super early every day? And if so, how do you squelch your night owl tendencies?
