Sometimes I can't stay asleep. There are those that can't fall asleep- that used to be me. But now, it's more of a wake-in-the-middle-of-the-night sort of thing. I know why- when the adrenals are stressed (work, homeschool, mom, wife- anyone else?) the body will wake in the middle of the night to seek nourishment.
It can also be a blood sugar problem. If I am dealing with blood sugars that are too high, I'll wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
If I drink wine that evening, I'll wake up in the middle of the night.
I know all of these things. Sometimes I still ignore my own advice and do things that will ensure a poor night's sleep.
You might do the same.
