"These are periods when you are sleeping less deeply. If you wake up in that period you'll feel bright and alert." Good advice! Experiment with that.
But a solution that solves more than this problem is:
-Never eat heavy meals 4-6 hours before sleeping, drink tea, water or juice only.
-Eat 2 times a day, & juice-fast at weekends (then you get a taste of the wonderful energy & decrease of sleep colorie-restriction can give you).
-Relax completly 3-5 times for 10 minutes each day, letting go of all worries!
Relax by focusing at the tension in your body part-by-part.
Do this after aerobic exercise, & you will feel the effects of exercise really good!
& further improvement is to do deep, complete diaphragm breathing before & after the exercise.
Don't drink coffee -- drink tea with lots of cayenne in it! It's good for your circulation both short & long term (I think, all I feel is that it's great short-term).
It's easy to end the coffee addiction if you take small doses throughout the day (to avoid headache by replacing it with tea).
