Waking up in the middle of the night is a surefire way to disrupt the next day’s activities.
Often, waking in the night is triggered by a type of insomnia, says Cleveland Clinic. Underlying health problems, such as chronic pain or acid reflux, can trigger the condition.
To get back to sleep, Cleveland Clinic recommends:
- Stop watching the clock.
- Relax with some stretches.
- Get out of bed and move to another room.
If insomnia persists, seek medical attention.
