If you are oversleeping, you can be feeling groggy, tired, and as if you had gotten no sleep at all. This can be from a lack of quality sleep or throwing your sleep cycle out of balance. When you try to compensate from lack of sleep, with too much sleep, it can lead to more issues such as diabetes, heart disease, or chronic headaches.
The proper amount of sleep varies by your age, lifestyle, and activity level. While it may seem to make sense that if you get 4 hours of sleep one night, 10 hours the next night will average out, but the body does not work this way. By not only not getting enough sleep, but varying the amount of sleep you get each night, you are throwing your circadian rhythm out of balance and ensuring a more listless, groggy, and tired version of yourself.
You may even be trying to get the right amount of sleep, but outlying factors such as depression, substance abuse, or sleep apnea are keeping you from the peaceful night you need. Having a sleep schedule that gets you less than 7-9 hours per night could lead to decreased brain functionality or an increased risk of heart problems over time.
Hypersomnia may be another medical condition which can wreak havoc on a sleep schedule. This condition compels frequent naps during the day, even when sleeping through the night, which can cause irritability, anxiety, and memory loss.
Whether it is due to medical conditions, lifestyle choices, or just a stressful daily routine, oversleeping is not the answer. Make sure you are getting the right amount of sleep by maintaining a set sleep routine to get the recommended 7-9 hours per night. Ensuring that you have a comfortable and relaxing place to sleep will also prevent tossing and turning throughout the night.
