- Who wakes up through the night?
Regularly thanks to working shifts been awake since 4am for example. Whatever you do don’t start doing things especially forming a pattern like nipping for a drink or you’ll wake up out of habit.
Or especially post on facebook or twitter saying you have insomnia again and can’t sleep, put the bloody stimulus keeping you awake down then.Posted 4 years agothepuristSubscriber
Yep. If you go to bed about the same time each night then the chances are you’ll wake at the same time in the night. You have a natural sleep rhythm that goes through the various stages from light sleep to deep/almost comatose sleep and back, so you’re more likely to wake ad you get back to light sleep. As the night progresses your max depth of sleep also decreases which is why you can wake up a few times in the hours before proper waking. I find that knowing my own sleep pattern means I get less bothered about being awake. The bonus is that if you wake just after REM sleep you’re more likely to remember your dreams, and wonder what the hell is going on in there…Posted 4 years agobenzMember
I seem to have developed an annoying habit of waking up about 1.5hrs after falling asleep (normally very easily) then wandering to kitchen to gulp some milk and munch a biscuit before heading back to bed.
Normally get an ok amount of sleep just broken.
Any others have similar waking tendancies?Posted 4 years agonealgloverMember
Seriously, though, apparently until recently humans used to have two sleeps a night
I sleep from about 10:30PM to 2:00AM then go to work.
Then sleep from 12:00PM to 1:30PM and go to work again.
I fall asleep in minutes and never wake up (or even move) till the alarm goes off.
Works for me. I’m often tired, but that’s less to do with the amount/pattern of sleep and more to do with working 75 hours a week.Posted 4 years agosteve_b77Member
Yup, I can sometime sleep too much if I don’t wake up at night.
Mini-me and sometimes doing a couple of nights a week with days either side properly messes me up, last night for example I was knackered after a fast 75km road ride, off the back of nights and 5 hours kip but I couldn’t sleep properly 🙁Posted 4 years agosolarpoweredMember

Benz… I’m not sure how old you are but I find I have the same rubbish sleep pattern when I’m worrying about stuff! Never used to have it before he age of 26!
I’m much older now btw so be reassured…… The sleepless bit wares off!!! 😀peterfileMember
I spent about a year doing CBT after suffering at the hands of insomnia since my yoof.
I was told that sleeping straight through the night isn’t common/normal for most adults and that waking up occasionally is to be expected. Maybe they were just trying to make me feel a bit better though 🙂Posted 4 years agoCapt. KronosSubscriber
Fortunately my 2 year old sleeps superbly up until about 6:30am.
Unfortunately the 10 month old doesn’t.
Going off to a motorbike rally this weekend, so hopefully I will get more and better sleep than I have had in months whilst in a pool of my own… probably… vomit 😉Posted 4 years ago
