I agree with Steve and Alex comments as well. I have meditated regularly for many years and I have noticed this effect with myself. I get by on much less sleep than most other people and I feel highly energetic most of the time.
Maybe you should get a couch installed in your bedroom.
Try employing your subconscious mind by giving yourself programming when you go to sleep. I have had success with this at telling myself to wake up at a specific time, feeling well-rested and having all of the energy I will need to easily and effortlessly meet the needs of my day. It is really amazing what can be accomplished by experimenting with these methods - your body, brain, mind will do what you ask them to do.
