Do you easily get sleepy?

This is my weak point. Even I have taken enough sleep, I still easily feel sleepy. Normally, I sleep for 7-8 hours which is very adequate for an adult I suppose. Usually I sleep before 12am and wake up around 6.30am the next morning. I think should be enough sleep for me. But I always feel sleepy after I reach home from work. Around 9pm, I will start to feel sleepy. Is there any problem with me? Am I lacking certain nutrient or what? Do you feel the same thing as what I am having now? Please do share,thanks.

Hi yenwie84. I do sleep very well thanks to my medication to help me cos of my moods and cos I was just not really able to sleep properly if more than 5-6 hours every night. I need more and so I got the new meds and then I was catching up on all that lost sleep time and then I am going back to normal time for sleeping. Catch ya later pretty_babe

Well, I do feel sleepy too sometimes even if I have enough sleep during the night. Specially when I am riding in a vehicle? it is really nice to sleep but I am not driving most often my husband drives I am always the passenger and I get sleepy in the car. I think, the food we eat also contributes our being active and not sleepy during the day. Possibly we lack nutrients that regulates our body to be active. But doing physical activity would eliminate being sleepy.

I sleep about 6-7 hours a day and the only time I'm overly sleepy is when the air at work is "Stuffy" and I feel like I'm lacking oxygen. I also get tired when I've been working hard outside in the garden or been more active than normal. Some people (like my sister) are always tired because they are low on iron. She was told to either take iron tablets or eat more meat.
