That time around 4 am is known as “the hour of the wolf” in swedish. It’s the time of the night when the body’s activity is at its lowest. The melatonin levels are at its highest, body temperature and blood pressure reach their lowest levels and metabolism goes down.

Your psychological defenses are down, and the things you hide and fear might become very apparent.
“The Hour of the Wolf is the hour between night and dawn. It is the hour when most people die. It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest angst, when ghosts and demons are most powerful.” - from The Hour of the Wolf by Ingmar Bergman
