Many women experience sleep disturbances during menopause generally associated with night sweats; however you seem to have this under control. Your diet, exercise and general health seem optimal. Perhaps if you wake to go to the toilet you may have to consider how much you drink before bed-time. It is sometimes very informative to keep a chart and see if there is any correlation with fluid intake and disturbed sleep.
Also you might need to reflect on any anxieties or worries you have all of which can be amplified in the middle of the night when you are trying to settle back to sleep.
If you find it hard to fall back asleep, try a relaxation technique such as visualization, deep breathing, or meditation, which can be done without even getting out of bed. Remind yourself that although they’re not a replacement for sleep, rest a nd relaxation still help rejuvenate your body.Hypnotherapy can vbe helpful and there are sleep clinics if basics measure do not alleviate the problem. I wish you well.
