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?

@ElicBxn no I haven't I know if I had a regular time of going to bed & getting up I wouldn't be so tired but I put WAY too much time here on the computer is one thing but I've since changed all that.

It happens to me sometimes. Especially now that I am 50 years old. There are days that I feel like I am too tired and just wanna lie down and rest.

@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.

@shamish no, I'm fine I do this every so often I'm almost 60 I hardly sit down for long I'm always on the go so I just get tired & it catches up to me I guess is all.

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.

@marlina ha ha ha really? that MIGHT just be the trick but it don't happen too often just every now & then which is odd we don't have a sleep lab so that won't work for me sorry.

@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 ??
