: I have no trouble getting to sleep, but I've been waking several times per night since I moved into my new place 3 months ago. No noises, no nothing, but I wake up as often as every 1 1/2 hours. I'm getting almost no REM sleep and it's affecting my job. If it's the new place, wouldn't that have worn off by now?

I have this exact same problem- I am a college student and can also fall asleep but cannot stay
asleep for more than 2 hrs without waking. I an also always wide awake at the crack of dawn.
I went to a doctor and all she said was to follow these things:

1) No caffiene after lunch
2) Only use your bed for sleeping
3) No naps
4) Relax before bed
5) Try to go to sleep at the same time every night and wake up at the same time also
6) If you are worried about something write it all down on paper to rid your mind of it
7) Try "thought stopping"- this is when your mind is so busy you can't stop thinking about things.
To do this you need to write all your thoughts down before you lie down. When you are in your
bed force all thoughts out of your mind(make a picture with that), then repeat to yourself if
necessary-I am calm and relaxed over and over.

I hope this helps-if you have any ideas for me email me at JimmyRay2@hotmail.com

Thanks
Gretchen
