Make the time!: Sleep is the body and mind's time to rejuvenate, and the importance of good quality sleep cannot be overstated. Sleep deprivation can lead to all sorts of problems, not to mention how unsafe it is to drive while sleepy. Being tired is your body's way of saying you need sleep - so listen!

Depends: On your overall health. If sugar is important for you, it could be the cause. Sounds weird? I have seen so much ill health from the widespread sweet "junk" eaten and drunk today, if there is emotional stress, that could be related.
