    Hard time staying asleep?

    Okay so recently over the past week or so I have been finding it harder and harder to stay asleep. I generally do not have a hard time falling asleep on most nights but I usually will wake up anywhere from 1-3 times a night, a few hours apart. It seems to be worse on days that I workout. The only supps I take are whey and a multi so I don't think its that, also before bed I drink 1-2 cups of milk along with 1/2 cup cottage cheese and some PB. So that whole milk idea on helping you sleep doesn't work for me.

    I generally don't have too hard of a time getting to sleep but its more so I wake up every few hours for some odd reason and then go back to bed after awhile. It could just be noise that wakes me(usually hasn't in the past) such as my parents going downstairs to check on my brother. For example the other night I went to bed at 11pm(generally wake up between 8-9am can't sleep later) and then woke up at 2:07am and then again at like 4-5am.

    Today I also felt tired when I woke up so thats a good indicator that I am waking up as I went to bed at like 11pm and woke up at 8:07am and was WAY too tired.

    I know sleep is important to build muscle so this makes me concerned. Any ideas and HELP how to fall asleep and STAY asleep and more importantly WHAT could be causing this? Only been happening recently and Ive been lifting weights for four weeks so idk..

    help?

    Personally, I would just play the wait-and-see game. I've had a string of waking up at odd times in the night before, but after a bit I will regain my thorough sleep.

    So go to bed when Im actually tired? Jeez for me that could make awhile idk why but also I CANNOT sleep later than 9am(generally 8:30am) so going to bed too late would still take the risk of waking up and then getting less sleep.

    Man I hate this, I tried to stay relaxed for the 40 minutes before but hey Im due for bed in a little over an hour so maybe Ill hop off the computer.

    Calcium competes with magnesium and usually displaces it in the body. This causes typical magnesium deficiencies and its effects to become even more exasperated.

    Ditch the milk and cheese, and go grab a magnesium supplement from a store, 1-2 grams and you should be out like a log.

    Do you snore? If so, it could be sleep apnea. Normally it effects over weight people, but not always. If you have health insurance you might want to get a sleep study.

    thanks guys yeah I feel asleep without the usual bedtime snack yet I still had a hard time sleeping and only got like 6 hours at the most, driving me insane. Should try that mg though.

    But shouldn't you have PB and all that before bed, or ditch it? Because I didn't eat my usual before bed and I still had a rough night.
