It should be 'because'since it is followed by the reason for going to bed . To use 'so' we have to say I was tired fist.

I would say "because".

I would vote because here. But I won’t forget an archaic use of the word "so" to mean "if" or "on the condition that" as a conjunction.

I think it is because, since it indicates the reason why something happens.
