In brief: Sleep hygeine

There can be many reasons for early arousal from sleep, including going to bed too early, problems with light exposure and levels of melatonin you secrete at night as well as aspects of depression that can cause early awakening.
Discuss with your doctor whether a formal sleep evaluation would help improve this problem.
