Being in perimenopause, I find I wake up about 3am often and then toss and turn and don't get back to sleep unfortunately until about 30 minutes before my alarm goes off and I have to get up to go to work. I know this unrest hinders my weight loss too and adds to stress, decreased energy levels, focus problems, etc. So I'm wondering who else has this problem and how they deal with it too.
I hate not sleeping! My wake up time is usually around 2 am. It used to be so bad I felt like I was going to crawl out of my skin. I would have to get up and move about I just could not lay there, there was no way. It's gotten a little better, but most of the time I do wake up. I have a nook so sometimes I just read, sometimes I can go back to sleep. Exercise helps, I also started taking an over the counter med called "I-Cool". My night sweats are usually not so bad now and it has helped with a few other issues.
