In brief: Fight off sleep

Better not to nap.
Better to stay awake then go to bed an hour or two early. If you nap you will probably have insomnia again. If your circadian rhythm disrupted due to travel or changing shifts at work you should try melatonin. Melatonin is a natural hormone that can help reset your body's internal clock.
