- It’s harder to get a good night’s sleep as we grow older. We might find ourselves in bed for hours, unable to drift off. Or, we might fall asleep right away, only to experience a period wakefulness in the middle of the night. Maybe we wake up at 4 a.m., and lie awake until dawn. Painful health conditions interfere with sound sleep. Of course, those middle-of-the-night bathroom trips can get us out of bed, interrupting sleep night after night. And even if we’re sleeping for the recommended 7 or 8 hours, we nonetheless might not feel rested the next day.
