do you ever find yourself too tired to do anything after you just got up? I do at times, not very often but at times I do, even after I've had my coffee. it's like I'm just drained & haven't done anything, can you tell me why? I get up early I sometimes go to bed early & sometimes late & never feel like this it's just every now & then I get this way & it makes me wonder if I'm just getting old or I'm not getting enough sleep or do I need more rest.

I generally feel that way a lot of the time and it is probably because of being sick.

@Marcyaz but I'm not sick wonder if it has anything to do with the weather being so hot right now? but it was early so I don't think so

@ridingbet I guess it's like my husband says "if you didn't need it you wouldn't have went back to bed" reading sometimes makes me tired but that's just when I read books not while I'm on here so what's up?

That cat's yawn made me yawn I feel like that a lot. I think it's because our brain is so busy even while we sleep that we wake tired.

@just4him when I go to sleep my mind goes right along with me I don't have nothing I'm thinking about I make sure it's blank I sure don't dream to keep my mind going so I don't know it's strange how we can look at someone or something yawn & we start doing it huh??

@sugartoes It's a natural reaction. You're lucky you don't have anything on your mind when you go to bed. I have to calm my mind down and think of something that will cause me to go to sleep. Working on a book does the trick every time.

It could be that you aren't actually sleeping well on those nights. Have you had a sleep study done?

@sugartoes Maybe that really happens to us, aging people. We are not getting any younger and our body is not as strong as before. We feel tired easily.

Exercise regularly . Happy hormones will be released and you will be energetic all the day. Maintain a schedule for sleep and waking up. Sleep before 10.00 and wake up at 6.00. You can observe the changes.

Whenever I feel tired to do something, I go over my phone and look for some motivational quotes. Those are good words for me to start to move. Sometimes, I just chat with my close friends and have a good laugh with them. There are times, I just watch tv for few hours and after that I will have energy again to work. I suggest you look for something that will give you the energy you need to regain your strength.

@sugartoes,May be you didn't have a sound sleep.I never feel tired after getting up.Tiredness engulfs me often when I come back after a long evening walk.Going for evening walk has been my routine in which I cover 5-7 kms,but sometimes I try to travel farther.

@sugartoes Often too much fatigue also becomes a reason for lack of sleep.You worked hard with injured leg and got completely exhausted.That's why you couldn't sleep.

@sugartoes Yeah I get like that a lot too. I don't no the reason as to why it's happening to you but the only things that come to mind are: *Restless sleep. *Bored. *Too much on the mind. *Stressed. *Not enough exercise. *Not enough iron / poor diet. And again, I don't know the reason and everything I just listed may not even be close to why it happens to you but it's all I can think of right now.

@gr8nana6 I found that even though we FEEL like we get enough sleep MOST the time our body tends to feel like it needs MORE that's why it's always GOOD to take a 2-3 hr nap like around noon before 3 pm

@BettyB ha ha ha yeah that's good but see I DO everyday with 8 dog's a husband & 2 places to keep up with to TRY & keep CLEAN as well as trying to get a craft shop going & get a cabin in order to make it my craft shop as well as my cave to live in plus trying to get the YARD in order on top of ALL that & then some. so it's not like I don't have NOTHING to do I have PLENTY that's why I get up at 6 am & don't go to bed till 12 am @ times not to mention try somewhere among ALL that & get the crafts ready.

You know what? When I feel that way, I put the song of Bruno Mars, the lazy song, where he says "Today I swear I am not doing anything, I just want to lay in my bed" I don't think it has anything to do with getting enough sleep, or getting old. It happens from time to time, that you wake up in the morning, and you are up to nothing. Just a lazy day. I might get worry if it happens again, again, and again, but if it's just now and then, well, in my opinion it's normal

@JohnRoberts well I have been under a little stress trying to set the cabin up for my craft shop so you may have something there & don't have the money to really do a whole lot to make life better that's why I thought by making a craft shop would help solve that problem for us ??
