59. I have a sleep "disorder". And while I've cut the going to sleep time down from 1.5 hours to average

which is 15 to 20 minutes, I still have issues with waking up at 3:30 or 4:00. Most sleep specialist will recommend NOT laying in bed. Get up and do something task oriented but boring. Sorting laundry, arranging spice racks... you know, repetitive but about as exciting as watching paint dry.

I used to lay in bed then get sleepy about the time the alarm was set to go off 7 or so. Now I can get up, putz around for an hour or so and start feeling tired. I can usually (not always) fall back to sleep.

We really aren't built to sleep all night. That wake up in the middle is actually fairly normal. And from an evolutionary/survival point of view a handy thing to get up and check for bears, cougars or velociraptors (yesterday was National Velociraptor Awareness day btw)

So, good advice upthread. Get up and watch paint dry. Just know that next time it happens, you won't be alone. Most likely I'll be awake with you.
