Going to bed early – and loving it

When it starts getting dark earlier, I start going to bed earlier.  This past week, I’m heading to bed by 9:20 and it feels great.  Usually, I wake up around 5 – on weekends I read until I fall back asleep for another hour or so, but during the work week I don’t have that chance, so am stuck being awake at 5.  If I go to bed at 10:30 it means I didn’t get enough rest, whereas if I go to bed at 9:20, I do.  I love that.  When I was in grad school and stopped working at the bar, I was so burned out from so many 3 AM nights that I went to bed at 8:30 for months on end.  I really did enjoy it, when it’s dark.  I just don’t feel my best when I go to bed too much past 10, and past 10:30 I am screwed.
