    I know it might be hard as a mother, but try to maintain a curfew. And if that's not possible, have a computer/media curfew. After 9 or 10 pm, these devices trick your brain into thinking that it's still day time. But if you can turn them off and do something else, you'll get a better and deeper sleep. It might take some time to establish, but it will come.

    Also, you can try eating more protein in the morning and then move towards more vegetables in the evening. Drink lots of water and make sure you exercise. Even just a 10 minute stroll in the morning will help with energy.

    Finally, add meditation. Like walking, just 5-10 minutes will do you good. Tim Ferriss has a rule that you should set the timer for less than you think you can do. So if you think you can only meditate for 5 minutes, set the timer for 4 minutes.

    I added to this the "stay a bit longer" approach. So if I think I can only do it for 5 minutes, I set the timer for 4 minutes. When it rings, I shut it off but stay a bit longer in the meditation. It really helps and usually it's during that last little part that real restoration happens.

    Give these things a try and better rest, balance and regularity will most likely follow.
