Here’s Why You Should Never Get Up To Pee In The Middle Of The Night
6 months ago
When you wake up in the middle of the night, your whole body tends to be very still, with all of the muscles relaxed.
It’s natural to start wiggling around to try to get some sensations going, but you should resist.
Your muscles are relaxed because it’s easier to sleep that way, and they don’t need to be active during the night.
When you start moving and rustling around, it “wakes up” your muscles and gets them active again.
You might have a hard time getting back to that first comfy spot, because now your muscles are all tensed up.
It’s better to stay totally still and avoid tensing up; you’ll float right back to sleep!
