dear all, you have to know that all permissible actions you are doing day long; like eating, sleeping, working, etc. all these actions you can change into acts of worship gaining thousands of "hasanat" good deeds but only if you intend through these actions to be closer to allah.
Prophet muhammad pbuh said:
"actions are but by intentions and every man shall have only that which he intended". narrated by al bukhari and muslim.
for example: the muslim sleeps early to be able to pray his night prayers or dawn prayers; so his sleep turns into worship, and so on regarding all other permissible actions in his daily life.
