Have you ever woken up after a few hours sleep and not been able to go back to sleep again? You probably either lay in bed tossing and turning, or woke up your partner, put the light on to read a book, or got up to get something to drink?
Now if you thought there was something wrong with you, then no – not so – apparently this is an established biological pattern that has existed for hundreds of years.
This month’s The Big Issue contains an exceptionally interesting article on sleep patterns, our biological cycle, and the effect of artificial light upon our sleep. In addition, there is a fascinating insight into the use of Tik by women – including those who are pregnant.
