Wake up multiple times during the night

I have never been a great sleeper but as I get older, I seem to wake up more often during the night. I will sleep for about 2 hours then I seem to wake up every hour after that and sometimes 2-3 times each hour. I only get about 6 hours sleep anyway and by the end of some days, I am exhausted.

Hi GSDlady and thank you for posting!

There are a number of things that could be causing you to wake during the night -- stress, late night electronic use and your mattress among others. I found this article on What's Waking You Up at Night , that has some helpful tips and insights from our sleep expert over on our Sleep Well blog.

I hope one of these methods works for you!
