Why You Wake Up At 3 A.M.

It's Thursday night and you're falling asleep to The Office.

You haven't been getting much sleep lately and tonight is the night where you feel exhausted beyond belief.

After ten minutes, you doze off into a very deep sleep.

After a couple of dreams and one nightmare, you find yourself awake, looking around your darkened room wondering if the pile of clothes on your chair is an actual Demogorgon.

So, why do you wake up at 3 a.m.?

There may be a spiritual meaning that explains why you wake up at 3 a.m. each night or roughly around the same time.
