Is it normal to wake up from sleep for a short time during the night?

Actually, yes. You may think that a good night’s sleep means 8 solid hours of uninterrupted sleep, but that’s not really true.

Think of it this way: Your body cycles through all the different stages of sleep more than once while you’re sleeping. When you finish one cycle, it’s perfectly natural to wake up. You aren’t disrupting your sleep cycle and can fall asleep again, typically in less than 15 minutes. This isn’t the same as sleep fragmentation, which affects the quality of your sleep.

Sometimes worrying about this phenomenon causes more problems than the lack of sleep itself!
