Hi, After a little help here.. I've always thought it was normal to wake up a few times a night, roll over, and quickly fall back to sleep. I've learnt that it's not! Last night was a classic example of this: I woke up, rolled... (more)

It could be any number of things. One thing that might help is to get an audio recorder, if you have an android phone, there should be one built in; set your phone next to your bed, and record it at the highest quality, then download it on... (more)

You'd think that to wakey wakey for eggs and bake-y would be reason enough, but I find myself physically incapable of waking early enough to get myself ready for the day, thus I always get up RIGHT before it's too late, and running out of the... (more)

Go to sleep at (let's just call it) 11 and wake up at 5:40 if you're waking up "late"? That's not even 7 hours, no wonder you can't wake up an hour before that.

Hi. For some weeks I've been following the guidelines about this. Sporting after waking up, and not eating carbs after (sometimes don't eating anything at all even for some hours). Something I wanted to ask is why the sport-after-waking-up thing,... (more)

I ask because I can sleep 4.5 hours (3 REM cycles I'm guessing) and wake up and be fine(no obvious loss of energy/mental acuity), though I have to force myself out of bed(but don't we all?). On the other hand I can sleep 8 hours and easily go... (more)

If everything's working well, and you've got a set pattern of going to bed at the same time, then waking up at a fixed time and exposing yourself to bright light when you do, you'll find that you'll start to wake before the alarm clock. If... (more)

For me, I figured out if I had anything with refined sugar in the evening (such as dessert after dinner), I had a hard time waking up in the morning (like hangover style). A little fruit doesn't seem to affect me the same though.

Over the past 10 years I have developed into somewhat of a night owl. When starting Paleo I tried to remedy this by going to bed before midnight. I then realized that, the earlier I go to bed, the more sleep it seems I need, and when I wake up I... (more)

Definitely a night owl, but felt vindicated a couple years back when a couple articles started circulating referenced a study at the Universit?? de L??ige in Belgium that night owls stayed alert for longer periods of time: Scientific American,... (more)

I know this isn't much of an answer, but probably something to talk to a doctor about. If you're having trouble waking up, there can be blood sugar issues that you don't want to mess with.
