Your normal diurnal: rhythm may not be to go to bed at 2 AM and wake at noon. If this is not your usual sleep wake cycle, you are experiencing tiredness similar to what one would have with jet lag. Going to be and waking at the same times every day is the best way to assure restful and restorative sleep.
