Hello,rios! Too much of anything is always bad.there is a minimum and maximum amount of sleep prescribed by the medical science.you must adhere to that.adult humans have the biological need to sleep at least 7/8 hours.sleep is a metabolic regulator and sleep disorder of any kind effects the metabolism.so you must regulate your sleeping habits for better health.thanx.

I get the same thing, and I absolutely hate it. Sometimes I can't help but just sleep in for hours, but when I get up I just feel so vile and unmotivated. I think our body just shuts down a bit and can't quite reboot.

In my opinion, the time that you spend in sleeping is important. However, i think the quality of the sleep is much more crucial in deciding whether you have really get a rest from it or not. If your brain still keep thinking about your studies, your working stuff, means that your brain is actually not resting while you are sleeping. In fact, you will feel more tired after you wake up.

since the day my son was born i cant no longer remember when was the last time i slept a lot. but it was okay for me. my wife is used already on having just a few hours of sleep but me i am still in the adjusting period. if you sleep to much our body really wants to sleep more i think that is natural.

If you have a lot of stress in your life, this could contribute to your feelings of sleeplessness. Try relaxing before you lay down to sleep and make sure you don't over sleep. By that I mean, try to get at least eight hours but less than say ten or eleven hours. It could be your bed too. Some people don't sleep good on a firm bed, where as others don't sleep good on a soft bed. I hope this helps and you are able to get some good rest.

I think most people feel the same way when oversleeping. 8 hours sleep should be good. I read somewhere that the best thing to do to schedule sleep. Try to sleep at the same time each day. I can't do it myself because I work nights and on weekends I sleep day and night.
