Hostafan, if its any help, my nan always said that as she got older, she needed less sleep. 7 children and 18 grandchildren,and 5great granchildren before she died, meant she was always busy during the day and never had time for a nap. She would go to bed by 10, and be up at 4 . She would then get up and start doing something, often being in the garden when the milkman came.
My other grandmother, had one child, four granchildren, did as little as possible except delegation, napped every afternoon, and complained that she never slept a wink at night.
Stick with it, a regular routine is key.
