Melatonin...a natural product...helps many sleep. Me, too.

I popped over to read the Miracle Morning post – interesting. I am not a morning person but wish I was. Having got up at 5.30 yesterday to take my daughter to school (for a trip to France) I'm doubtful that I could sustain early rising!

I often wake up between 03:00 and 05:00. But I have no difficulty in getting to sleep (even after watching TV, using the computer, drinking coffee at CERN late at night etc.) My advice is just don't worry about it; yes you might wish life were different but certainly for those of us who have passed 50 interrupted sleep patterns become more and more likely. Worrying about it is counter productive. Of course if routines and ritual help then why not use them - I however do not.

Thanks so much for sharing my post - I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I like the idea of doing a little yoga before bed, and a bath is so relaxing. The pillow spray sounds rather nice too! I'm a pretty terrible sleeper, but I've definitely been finding putting away technology for an hour before bed is helping a lot. I'm so enjoying my morning routine that creating an evening routine and rituals is, I think, a fantastic idea too! xxx

I will try some of your remedies,I wonder why getting a good nights sleep is so difficult for so many people these days...

For those of us who are beginning to become old (ish) like myself, 55, it is an inevitable feature of ageing. For generations past if you were not in the upper echelons of society you probably worked such a long and arduous day that you were truly exhausted. I cannot quickly find evidence that suggests we are actually getting worse at sleeping once confounding factors are taken into account, though I can think of possible reasons, including vehicular noise, light pollution and (possibly) the distraction of a variety of digital media.

Although I now very rarely sleep without wakening in the middle of the night I find no evidence that this affects my ability during the following day.

I don't know if this would interest you knitting wise but there is a new KAL starting June 1st through this site. It is the Hydrangea KAL on the right of the sidebar.

Their two previous KALs produced beautiful shawls! Also, the Meadows yarn is so lovely.

Many thanks for the link, Kate! I'd love to join in as I've never taken part in a mystery KAL before, but I'd have to finish a couple of things first ... So many lovely patterns and yarns, so little time!
