Hi Pearl. What you are describing is actually common. A lot of people experience this. I did, and found a way to make it better.

Historical accounts show that before the advent of electrical lighting, when people would spend much longer in bed (especially during winter), sleep would often be divided in the night. A first sleep of about 4 hours would be interrupted by an awakened period of one or more hours, followed by a second sleep of about 4 hours.

To help yourself sleep more solidly through the night, there is a simple drug-free solution to try. Just cut down on the amount of time you allow in bed.

So if for instance you normally allow 8 hours, try cutting that back to 7.5 hours and see what happens. If that doesn't help after a couple of weeks, try cutting back to 7 hours.

Give yourself a couple of weeks on your new consistent schedule before making changes. You'll soon discover your best sleep timing.

This technique is known as sleep restriction therapy, and it is part of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. For more info on this, you can try googling CBT adult sleep training methods or something similar.

Good luck.
