I don't know what's wrong with me these days. I'm always so tired in the morning, even after sleeping in. It seems as if my body is still adjusting from unemployed life to hardworking life. If I don't set an alarmclock, I sleep between 9 and 10 hours, with the occasional peak at 12 hours! I drag myself out of bed, take a shower, feel a bit better, but hardly find the energy anymore to also drag my butt to the gym. And that's what stings most. I like the gym, but for the last two weeks Rick had to pull me along. If he works different hours and can't go while I can, I don't go. I should go today, I need to go today, but at the moment I'm too darned tired, even after sleeping 9 hours. Tonight is gonna be a late night at work (wedding party), so I know I won't be going tomorrow.

I thought this kind of tiredness only came in winter when it's cold and dark. I somehow developed it now that it's getting warmer and sunnier. Is anyone else familiar with this? Is there such a thing as sleeping too much? What can I do to get more energy?

Sleeping in is the problem. You have to sleep between 6 and a half to 7 hours. 7 and a half tops. If you go beyond that point, you'd feel the same as if you've slept too little. Mind that.

You might want to get your blood checked for an iron deficiency.

I actually read something about this recently. The trick is to getting up at the same time every day regardless of what time you get to bed. It might take a week (tops two for most people) to adjust, but you find yourself feeling awake and refreshed at that hour, regardless if you've only slept for 4 hours. Of course, the goal you actually want to hit is 7.5 hours (humans tend to 'sleep in increments' of 1.5 hours, so you feel better when you've slept in some multiple of it).

Bedankt voor de tips. Het gaat weer beter, dus ik laat de huisarts even voor wat het is. Ik denk dat ik mijn energie tijdelijk niet goed verdeelde. Veel sporten en dan alleen maar water drinken doet een flinke aanslag op je lichaam. Nu ik met eten daarmee rekening houd, gaat het een stuk beter. Mocht ik nu toch weer slaperig en lusteloos worden, dan zal ik je advies eens opvolgen. Mijn bloed wordt sowieso 4 keer per jaar geprikt bij bloeddonaties, maar ik geloof niet dat ze me dan op die dingen testen, toch?
