What do you do in the middle of the night?

If you get woke up in the middle of the night, what do you do? Do you go back to bed or do you have an activity you do? Tonight when I got up, I went through my closet looking for random objects. Still can't find the stuff. Then, well I got on the computer and wound up here. I hope to go back to bed. Wish me luck.

I do not wake up in the middle of the "night" unless I am not feeling good. I usually take medicine and try to rest regardless.

@rajindia53 I do wish meditation would work. My problem is my children waking me up. What's worse is the dog wakes me up to. I sleep 2-4 hours at a time.

Lucky you! I wish I could get some sleep. I try, but then someone or something wakes me up, usually just because.

I open my laptop and start watching some show till I start to drift in the sleepy-land again!! And isn't the sleep we get after such an interruption just beautiful???

At this point any sleep is a comfort. I don't know what to do to get to sleep once I wake up. Usually I can go back to sleep just out of exhaustion.

@Rationalwriter I try to find something that is calming for me that I won't get too interested in. Usually an old movie. If I can find black and white that's even better.

If I wake up in the middle of the night, it usually means that nature is calling. I really wish nature could wait until daylight.

That is too funny. I do agree. What is that about anyway. Your body takes that long to process the water so it can certainly wait a few more hours to flush itself. Besides, it's not like you are up in the middle of the night guzzling water.

@mommaj It's even more annoying when were camping and I have to get into pants and find shoes and a flash light.

@msiduri Oh that is too funny! I remember as a kid doing that. UGH. I grew up knowing one thing, always take toilet paper with you when you leave the house. And whatever you do, if you have to go when you are drunk, take your pants off. Luckily, I didn't have that experience.

I usually would try to go back to sleep. But if I cannot go back to sleep I might do somethings to try and get me tired again.

I completely understand that. I try to go back to sleep and usually can just because I am exhausted. I would love to know what you can do to go back to sleep.

@mommaj Well, I don't know if I could say what I do to get tired again. But, it works.
