In brief: Life style modificat

Usually if you don't sleep at night for some reason, it's natural that you will feel tired during the day and sleepy.
It's like the jet lag. We have a circadian rhythm that controls our sleep- awake pattern. First try to avoid sleeping during the day , the try to go to bed early without watching late night shows. Avoid stimulants at night, make sure you have a quiet and dark bedroom.
