Consciousness problem


tannguyen.cse19 6 days

I have 8 hours straight sleep from 10PM to 6AM. Then breakfast and feel totally ready to jump to work at around 7AM. But when I start reading book (I am reading “Thinking Fast and Slow” now), I completely feel sleepy, just like the feeling when I go to school at 7AM. I don’t understand why? I have been that for 3 days.

However, these are the possible causes of waking up tired after a sleep. Generally. it is associated about the quality of sleep you get that night might not be good enough. It could be due to:

  • Blue light exposure from energy-efficient lighting and electronic screens suppresses the secretion of melatonin. It is a hormone that helps regulate your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
  • Poor sleep hygiene such as mattress problem, uncomfortable room temperature (too cold or too hot), loud noises
  • Too much caffeine* before sleep
  • Alcohol consumption would give sedatives effect but not a good sleep
  • Sleep problem such as sleep movement disorder, sleep apnea, insomnia, frequent awakening
