Reply to "mixed conditional?"

It can mean both things, as I explained in my post, depending on how "shouldn't" is interpreted.

If "shouldn't" is synonymous with "wouldn't," then (1) implies: Go to bed earlier and you won't feel so tired next time.

If "shouldn't" means "there's no reason or justification for you to (feel so tired)," then (1) means: If it is true that you went to bed earlier (than usual), then you shouldn't be so tired now.
