When you have a good night sleep why do you feel worst the next day?

When you have a good night sleep why do you feel worst the next day? I’m not one for having much sleep, or not having long periods of sleep and I feel totally fine. Now sometimes I will have a really good night’s sleep then wake up feeling worst for the sleep I had. I make you think was it really worth having all that sleep and then feeling so tired the next day. It’s never made sense to me to why you do feel more tired after a good night’s sleep. Does this happen to you? Do you feel worst after having a good night sleep?

I truly don't think that is the case. A good nights sleep will make you feel goo the following day. When you have too much sleep your not going to feel all that great the next day. I tend to sleep very little or just enough so,I do very good for the next day. Like this morning I slept about 3 am and for 5 hours. I was very good today.

Yes I'm often like that, I like my bed but sometimes too much sleep can make you even more tired. Have a nice evening

Actually, I can't remember the last time I had a good night's sleep. Beds and I just don't get along.

It is probably the load of food you intake before you went to sleep. Sometimes, the nutrients or excess is ingested in higher amounts and the system has to find a way to get them out. That makes one feel dizy! It has happened to me!

@kevin1877uk Food gets into the blood and in the cells; if the excess is not expeled, it causes a heavy load and puts other organs to work when they supposed to be in iddleness. It is better to eat a very slight amount of food before going to bed.

@quantum2020 My last meal would or could be around 6-7 sometimes a little later but not too often. I don't go to sleep until 3/4/5am

I don't think it makes much difference. I always seem to wake up tired, but at night I'm wide awake. I really wish it was the other way around.

I know what you mean, same here too, more awake a night than I am in the day time.

Maybe it means you slept for too long that previous night. I usually find that if I sleep too long, I am ultra tired and groggy in the morning. But when I get less, but better quality sleep, I feel more awake. I think everyone has a different amount of hours necessary for their bodies. Mine is somewhere around 6.5-7 hours per night. Hope you feel better soon!

I usually feel fine after a good night's sleep, but in the past, whenever I took a short nap during the day, waking from that nap made me feel awful. I haven't taken a nap in years to avoid that awful feeling.

You sure that was a good night sleep. Probably i was in your dream chasing you and you were running away like hell that's why yo woke up feeling tired the next day? A good sleep for me would be continuous deep sleeping ever single night for 6-8 hours in one week. Why one week? The moment i don't get my full hour sleep, even though i get that the following day, it would still make me feel like i haven't had a good night sleep at all.

I think there is a thing with sleeping TOO deeply

I think otherwise. After a good night sleep, for me, is an active, happy, feeling light day :D

It only happens when I have flu or fever.
