Weird sleeping patterns

This has been happening for a while. It might have to do with the excitement of my new toys (this blog, etsy, my sister's wii fit, ...)
I've got this hour to hour and a half sleep-less period at about 5 or 6am.
By now I have just accepted it: I read, think, or learn how to massage (I do adore being massaged. i would be massaged 24 hours a day).
I also feel terribly hungry, but don't want my metabolism to go "cookie time!" at these ungodly hours.
I read somewhere some time ago (or maybe I dreamt it, but not at 6 am) that native Americans used to consider this pattern normal and included it into their rutine. Probably the article said what they used it for, but my selective memory just took the "you are not the only one" message rather than the "how very interesting and informative" one.
I leave you with one of my favourite massage videos...

What did you think?

    that happens to me sometimes, i never thought there was an actual reason for it... i always just assumed it was my body's way of driving me crazy... waking up and being unable to get back to sleep 2 hours before my alarm is due to go off, desperately wanting to make the most of the rest of the night/morning.

    sometimes i also get really tired mid-afternoon and ever since i heard that in mexico and other countries with warm climates they've incorporated this into their routines with an afternoon siesta i've been using it as an excuse to take naps whenever i can :)
