Sleeping for more than 8hrs, is it not good for healthy?
I used to sleep around 10hrs per day. If I don't sleep the whole day I can't do any work.I feel sleepy all the time. If I try to sleep 6-7 hrs in the night I tend to sleep in the afternoon. I'm confused is it bad for health? How can I change it to healthier routine?
You might just need to get yourself into a new sleep cycle. For example make sure you go to bed and get up around the same time everyday, set a schedule for yourself. If you sleep 6 hours one night and then 10 the next and so on then you will generally feel tired and unrested. Also make sure to avoid caffeine, sugar and heavy meals right before you go to bed it can affect your sleep patterns. I think if you get yourself to a regular schedule it will help alot.
Do you exercise often? If not, then it's time to stretch and move! I've read some article before that exercising normalizes your metabolism... making your rest more efficient...
A lot of repairing of the body cells is done when we sleep... it's like defragmenting a computer... if our body defragmentation capability is slow, then we will need longer hours of sleep to feel completely rested...
If you are sleeping more than 8 hours per night, there maybe
some other health problems going on.
Those health problems may include ;
Hypertension,elevated glucose level or you are not really
sleeping well when you lay down to go to sleep.
Those symptoms also may be an indication of a sleep disorder.
You should consider seeing your primary physician for
a complete physical.
Go to bed at the same time and also, wake up at the same time. Turn off the TV about an hour before retiring and read a book or something relaxing. Also, avoid any stimulants, such as coffee, pop, etc. before going to bed. The use of an insomnia CD may also help in allowing you to get a more restful sleep. Hypnosis allows the body to enter into a deep relaxation that is not normally experienced. During this deep state of relaxation, the body has the opportunity to refuel, regenerate and return to health. In today's fast paced world, we don't take the time to allow our body's the recovering and restoring time that it needs. Learn self-hypnosis! Hope this helps!!
You may have an underlying reason why you need so much sleep. I would check with your doctor but honestly some people just need more sleep. I wouldn't be too concerned unless yo are depressed or have an underlying health condition. You may just work too hard.
Scientific studies have shown that people have to sleep between six to eight hours every day. Too little sleep is harmful. The same thing applies to too much sleep.

I suppose many people do this. Sometimes before I go to sleep I feel a little hungry so I eat a few biscuits or cookies. Is that bad, or will it cause weight gain? Maybe it's because I have higher than normal metabolism?
