YES. Right now in fact. I think for me it sometimes has to do with going to bed means having to wake up for work in the morning….and that sucks

@PitBulLover: I’ve told Darling Husband that.  “If I sleep it means today is ending”.  I don’t think he quite understands.

At OP…what worked for me was just making myself tired.  I get up at 5am for work, so by 10pm I’m tired (my work is physical, so that helps).  Going to the gym…walking the dog…that works to tire me out pretty good.  I think a good nighttime ritual helps too (I’m still working on this)…just doing the same things in the same order every night so your body knows it’s time to sleep.

@soon2bhis: I really second the ritual. I do the same thing before I go to bed every night, and that can be anywhere from nine thirty to one in the morning. I would definitely reccommend it.

Same with me. I could be SOOOO tired but still not want to go to bed. I do agree w PitBullLover, it means another work day once you get up, so I am trying to lenghten my day. But the bad part w that is you get less sleep, and when I wake up in the morning I regret not going to bed at a reasonable time.

What works best for me is to make some fun bedtime plans. Sadly, that is pretty much the only thing that can get me off memebase at 11pm.
