Everyone has experienced periods of waking up in the middle of the night, but how many of us actually manage to fall asleep again? Unfortunately, a lot of people make some common mistakes without realizing it when it comes to going back to bed. In this article, we’ll share what you need to avoid and how you can successfully fall asleep after a middle-of-the-night wakeup.

Mistakes People Make When Waking Up

The most common scenario when you can’t fall asleep is constantly tossing from side to side or just lying there, waiting to hear that annoying alarm sound. Unfortunately, that’s not the right way to proceed. There are a few reasons why waking up at night and not being able to fall back asleep is a regular thing for some people.

If you’re experiencing such issues, this might be a sign you’re going through stress or pain. Another reason might be environmental factors such as outside noise, movements, or temperature. It’s also possible that you suffer from a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

How to Fall Asleep Again

The best thing you can do when waking up during the night is stay in bed and try to relax instead of constantly tossing and turning. Wait for about 10 to 15 minutes, and if this doesn’t help you get back to sleep, it’s time to roll out of bed. Go to a quiet room in your home and find a relaxing activity such as reading, meditating, or trying out breathing exercises. Return to bed once you start feeling sleepy again.

Follow the tips above, and you’ll definitely notice the difference.
