Waking up in the night is NORMAL!

Sleeping for 8 straight is NOT.

If you listen to sleep scientists, they will tell you that humans are wired to sleep in 3-4 hour chunks.

People used to literally go to bed "with the chickens" and wake up around 11 pm or so and do "stuff"...read, eat, , etc.

That was called the "list watch".

Then they would go back to sleep until dawn or shortly after.

So if you go to bed at 10 or 11 and wake at 3, it's NORMAL.

Get up, get a drink of water, use the bathroom, read a bit, whatever, then go on back to sleep and stop fretting about it.
