I ask because I can sleep 4.5 hours (3 REM cycles I'm guessing) and wake up and be fine(no obvious loss of energy/mental acuity), though I have to force myself out of bed(but don't we all?). On the other hand I can sleep 8 hours and easily go... (more)

If everything's working well, and you've got a set pattern of going to bed at the same time, then waking up at a fixed time and exposing yourself to bright light when you do, you'll find that you'll start to wake before the alarm clock. If... (more)

I know this isn't much of an answer, but probably something to talk to a doctor about. If you're having trouble waking up, there can be blood sugar issues that you don't want to mess with.

There are a lot of different factors so it could be a range of things- Does it gradually go away as the day goes on or is it a consistent feeling of fatigue- if it is could be adrenal fatigue.... which is worsened by sugar/stress/improper eating... (more)

Hi. For some weeks I've been following the guidelines about this. Sporting after waking up, and not eating carbs after (sometimes don't eating anything at all even for some hours). Something I wanted to ask is why the sport-after-waking-up thing,... (more)

Over the past 10 years I have developed into somewhat of a night owl. When starting Paleo I tried to remedy this by going to bed before midnight. I then realized that, the earlier I go to bed, the more sleep it seems I need, and when I wake up I... (more)

I am a total night person, but I have been trying to adjust my internal clock to sleep more/better. Saying "go to bed at a consistent time" doesn't help if you're not tired. I had to take a combined approach, but I'm finally seeing progress. My... (more)
