    Why the hell have I started waking up at 4am?

    Why? WTF? It's been going on for a while now. Wake up between 4 and 5. Sometimes I'll sleep longer, sometimes (rarely) I'll even wake up in the threes, but it seems like it's 3-4 days per week in the 4s or early 5s. Sometimes more. Anybody else have this shit going on? How do I fix it?

    Ok, go.

    I've been waking up at 3:30-4am for the past two weeks.

    Light sleeper and the birds outside the window are fucking loud.

    When I started having to get up at 4:00 in the mornings I was in my late 20s. Now if I can sleep past 6:00 it is cause for celebration.

    I suggest you explore the wonderful world of the afternoon power nap.

    sometime reading a book will put me to sleep, more physical work is more tiring so I sleep better

    more likely you will just learn to abide

    There is an insomnia thread you may want to look at. I am awake a couple of hours a night, usually between 2:30 and 4:30. And the afternoon nap really helps.

    Could be the A-G-E syndrome. Do you get up and pee or just lie there and go back to
    sleep?

    Welcome the world of biphasic sleep my friend.

    We essentially take 2 long naps a day.

    I got to sleep at 12:30am, wake up at 3, go lay on the couch until about 4, then sleep again until about 6-6:30.

    Try googling 2 sleeps apparently it was common

    turn on the light, read a book which alway puts me to sleep

    probably the worst thing to do is try and fix it with sleeping pills

    I find 30-50mg of CBD helps my fall back asleep after waking up in the middle of the night. Unfortunately for me 2-4am is when all my business thinking happens, it's a blessing and a curse.

    ^^^^Yup, yup, yup and yup, what they said (other than killing roosters). Either that or your brain is telling you to get prepped for 4:20. That's what happens to me so I go out on the patio and smoke one, then I come in and phart around on the forum until it puts me to sleep.

    I was gonna crack some wise ass shit about being old.
    But that was a great read. Thank you.

    Biphasic

    Having woken up too soon, I figure that’s the shit. But. Maybe embrace it as normal. Do something. And take that second nap afterwards. Fkna.

    From the article. Great time for banging.

    ďFor husbands and wives who managed to navigate the logistics of sharing a bed with others, it was also a convenient interval for physical intimacy Ė if they'd had a long day of manual labour, the first sleep took the edge off their exhaustion and the period afterwards was thought to be an excellent time to conceive copious numbers of children.

    Once people had been awake for a couple of hours, they'd usually head back to bed. This next step was considered a "morning" sleep and might last until dawn, or later. Just as today, when people finally woke up for good depended on what time they went to bed.Ē
