Troubles Staying Asleep

Patient : For about the last year I have been having serious troubles with sleeping. Getting to sleep isn't the problem, but staying asleep. Every night I will awake at 2 or 3am in the morning and not be able to return to sleep. I used to be able to just read a magazine to fall back asleep, but it no longer works; nothing seems to work. And I don't believe it is stress, as my mind is clear, and everything seems fine in my life. Whatever it is, my younger brother and gramdpa suffer from the same problem. I hope you have some answers
