Postby fanny » Thu, 02 Sep 2004 7:04 pm

hi anyone can help?? I always sleep at about 12am and would wake up at about 12pm the next day... about 12 hours of sleep.. but the problem is that I will feel tired in about 2 or 3 hours later... is this something bad??
I can sleep at almost any time of day even though I have slept for about 8 hours or more...

Ask your doctor for a prescription for Provigil (Modnafil). Keeps you awake but is not a stimulant so you can still go to sleep at night. Used extensively by pilots (and cheating athletes!)

I sleep about 4-5 hours a day everyday...

I guess its stress related.

Oh and before anyone asks I do feel tired :wink:

Do you dream a lot when you are sleeping? Or you keep waking up? One of my friend have the above problems and that's why she can get tried easily even she sleep for long periods of them. Do you exercise? Cos if you don't exercise you can get lethargic easily, maybe doing some exercise will help. Basically try having a healthier lifestyle. :D

I used to feel tired after a short while. but when i started to exercise, i do feel more alert and better already. Sometime you just got to make some time out of our busy schedule to do some exercise. If a bit is still better than nothing at all. If really busy, can try doing exercise in our daily lifes, like taking the stairs instead of the lift or walking the longer road to your home etc. Going window shopping is also a good idea, walking is also a nice form of exercise and you get to enjoy it. :lol:

Too much sleep can be just as bad as not enough, but most important is the quality of the sleep you get. 6 to 9 hours is the normal range, but there are many people who do fine on 4 hours. The key is mental and physical relaxation, which is missing in most people's lives because of hectic, unbalanced contemporary lifestyles. Factors which contribute to poor sleep include alcohol (interrupts normal sleep patterns and irritates the brain and nervous system), other dietary influences such as sugar, caffiene and other stimulating foods, lack of proper nutrients, poor breathing habits, poor mental habits and the inability to slow down and relax.
All of these can be dealt with through self-education and training, but one way to craft a balanced lifestyle is to start learning yoga from a qualified teacher who can guide you to a holistic approach including diet, excercise, breathing, and mental and physical relaxation. Even simply learning to meditate can help you sleep much better - try Vipassana meditation. It is particularly effective for a variety of troubles.
