What It Means When You Keep Waking Up At Night
Many nights I toss and turn for hours in the night trying to fall back asleep as my fiancé lays there sound asleep. If you're like me at all, Bustle explains that there are a few things it could mean for us because we can't stay asleep at night.
- Insomnia could be one solution as waking up multiple times during the night is a form of insomnia brought on by stress. I recently just moved so that would make a lot of sense for me! This form of insomnia and the stress that goes along with it generally goes away when you adopt lifestyle changes like a good bedtime routine.
- Too much screen time before bed is definitely something that I am guilty of, and so many studies are revealing that being on your phone or watching television before bed can really hinder your sleep.
- Depression can also be a reason that you're having trouble sleeping. You would think that depression would cause you to sleep all the time, but that is not always the case.
If you start making changes to your routines and are not finding the changes to be working in your favor, please talk to your doctor. Sometimes just turning off your phone an hour before bed does the trick, but other times, it can be something more that needs a doctor's attention.
