Always wake up this early

Causes when you wake up (too) early

Sleep disorders are mostly disorders in deep sleep that are caused by medication, alcohol or an improper diet. What to do if you wake up early

If you wake up too early in the morning and can't get back to sleep, it's only a problem if you think you haven't slept well yet, or you are awake and relaxed but don't know what to do early.

Those who often wake up early in the morning have usually gone to bed too early the evening before. I. E. The body and mind need less sleep than many would like to admit. Very often the early waking in the morning occurs in combination with problems falling asleep and staying asleep. In these cases, the same causes for early morning awakening apply as for difficulty falling asleep and difficulty sleeping through the night.

If, for example, you go to bed very early in the evening, i.e. you do not yet have the necessary bed weight, then you will not sleep well, you may wake up more often at night and wake up early in the morning. You will then by no means feel rested and well rested, but rather exhausted and bruised. Since we are almost only in a light sleep in the morning hours, our sleep is very prone to disturbance during this time. When the tenant flushes the toilet above us, a tram screeches around the bend or birds organize a concert in front of our window, then we are more likely to perceive these noises due to our light sleep and wake up more easily.

What kind of sleep disorder you suffer from and which sleep phases are disturbed (light, deep or dream sleep phase) can be determined in a sleep laboratory. There are sleep laboratories in clinics in many cities. You are going there for a night or two. During the night, your brain waves will be recorded and your sleep will be monitored. In this way you can reliably determine how your sleep is disturbed and possibly take targeted measures.

Addresses of recognized sleep laboratories can be found here and here. Sleep labs are also a good place to go if you have sleep apnea.
