I Average 5 Hours a Night... If I'm Lucky!

I can't get more than 5 hours a night of shut eye.  I don't suffer from insomnia, because once I fall asleep, I don't wake up at all til morning, but if i try to go to bed early, I just lay there.  I'm in the bad habit (which I'm trying to break myself of) of using my laptop in bed to read, check email, surf, etc... and if I don't do that as the last thing I do before I go to bed, my mind will race until I do do it.

I don't really have much of a problem getting going in the morning, it's just that I can't seem to squeeze in enough hours of shuteye. I know that health problems will eventually arise if I don't start getting more sleep!

I know how you feel, i go to bed at 1 or 2 am and i have my kids that get up early and its so hard to get going,but i do. I try to go to bed at a good time but it doesnt work out.
