I seem to recall Weston Price making the argument in Nutrition and Physical Degeneration that how well babies sleep at night is related to the mother's diet during pregnancy and while nursing. Once again, Paleo FTW.

Move the alarm clock and any other plugged-in items at least 6' away from your head. This includes the plug cord itself. No piece of anything running on A/C power within 6' of the head. This does not include the wall outlet itself (unless the issue does not improve after doing this first step).

Include your cell phone (whether charging or on, the only exception is off or not charging) in this group, as it is sending and receiving a signal whenever it is on.

Report back after trying this for several nights.

I wonder if going to bed so early (9am) has some affect. Personally I can't even attempt to lie down before 10pm. I do find if I go to bed real early I only need like 6 hours sleep and wake up alot.....otherwise I usually sleep soundly for 8-9 hours if I go to bed around 11pm.

I have also found that if my mind is working and thinking about stuff....I can't sleep well...always up looking at the clock....like a kid waiting for Xmas morning. Might want to keep a pen and pad of paper next to the bed and write down all thoughts or things to do the next day so you are not trying to go to sleep and remember stuff.

As for the electrical stuff I have heard about the whole EMF field thing. I have read that your head of the bed should also be away from outlets. Some people go so far as to hit the circuit breaker for the room they are sleeping in. Personally dont think I would go that far...but if you are experimenting I guess anything is possible.

Josh,
Next, for a couple nights, try turning your body 180 degrees in the bed (ie. have your head where your feet used to be). See if there are any changes from that.

I would agree that it is only a problem if you don't feel like you have been to sleep in the morning when you wake up to actually start your day. If you start noticing that you're not feeling refreshed anymore when you get up, maybe you should see a neurologist about doing a sleep study. That would be able to tell you if you have a sleep disorder or if they have anything you could do to help you not wake up so much throughout the night.
