How can I get really refreshing sleep that makes me refreshed and charged up? I can get to sleep fine, but it's hardly ever satisfying.

I never feel refreshed and good after sleep. I get to sleep regularly and sleep through the night with a couple of toilet trips. I can wake up on time.
I've done Paul McKenna's sleep book and hypnosis
which goes through many of the tips, black out the room, only use the bed for sleeping. Fine it works well and I have good sleeping habits but don't feel great.
I've used a Pzizz
mp3 download to train myself to take naps with or without it which is an unexpected welcome skill.
I also use a white noise mp3
when I sleep which is great for blocking out noise.
All this sleep fu doesn't make it more refreshing. I have not often felt that I've had a great sleep. This only usually happens when I'm up all night for some reason, then pass out in the day. Then I feel great.
I do have worries at the moment. However this has been a more or less constant factor in life, so think it's something more pervasive.
