אני הולך כבר לישון


What is the meaning of the כבר in this sentence? I know כבר normally means already, but I don't quite get the meaning here.

Would someone have other examples of sentences where the כבר is used in this way, and how they are translated?

Thanks so much

    שלום לידיה,
    "אני הולך כבר לישון" זה כמו להגיד: אני הולך עכשיו לישון. בעוד זמן מאוד קצר אני מתכוון ללכת לישון.

    Hello, כבר there means "already/now/this moment": I will go to bed now. Other examples:

    .זה כבר מאוחר
    .אני מדבר כבר קצת עברית
    ?היא כבר קמה
