The Healthy Reflections for the day implied that lack of sleep was a choice. It's not that I don't have time to sleep -- I lack the necessary skills. I go to bed at an early hour only to be awakened by bad dreams at 2am. I still don't know how to stop my mind from racing so I can go back to sleep. I'm not setting the alarm clock for some artifical deadline. I'm awake long before dawn, unable to relax and take advantage of those hours with sleep. I'm not up filling my time with unnecessary activity, I'm in bed, willing sleep to come. It's frustrating, but I'm still trying. Quieting my mind and sleeping are skills I must learn
