ADVICE: I Wake Up at 3 a.m. Every Night. How Do I Get Back to Sleep?
By Margaret Crandall
I used to be a champion sleeper. I’d be out like a light when my head hit the pillow, unconscious for at least seven hours. Not anymore! For the last several months, I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night — usually around 3 a.m. — and then I can’t get back to sleep. I’m exhausted, cranky, and way too busy for daytime naps. Oh, and sleeping pills scare the hell out of me. I’m desperate for sleep — can you help me?
