I am a firm believer in the 30day challenges/trials, whatever you would like to call it. For me it's 21days because I prefer the number and there is this saying "it takes 21 days to build a habit".
Condition yourself for 21 days - no matter what - to go to bed for a nap at a certain time. Set the alarm 60 minutes later and close your eyes and doze. You won't fall asleep the first couple of times but after some time you will. Then carefully try to get up earlier. Nothing extreme in the beginning, reduce it by 30 minutes or so and continue to nap. You have to listen to your body. There is a difference when it just bitches around because it isn't used to it and when it really complains because it needs something and doesn't get it.
