Why Are You Always Tired When You Wake Up?

Why Are You Always Tired When You Wake Up 5 Things You Might Have Not Considered

You may have completed your 8 to 10 hour sleep cycle, but there could be certain things that may be contributing towards that feeling of exhaustion once you open your eyes. We often forget taking into consideration how our quality of life and what we do on a daily basis can sometimes add towards the stress, weariness, and tiredness when we wake up or during the day. Noticing and making certain changes in the environment in which you sleep can significantly help in not only creating a better sleep routine, but it will also allow you to wake up in the morning feeling fresh and energized.

Tired When You Wake Up

Below are certain things that you may have not thought of that play a role in feeling tired when you wake up and can help you stay more aware.

You are spending a long time in bed!

Yes, many-a-times you may wake up and spend some amount of time laying idle in bed or pushing the Snooze button on the alarm and going back to shutting your eyes. You may feel that dozing off for a few minutes before your alarm rings again is allowing you to sleep longer, but studies in fact suggest that doing so can lead your brain into not being able to enter the proper deep sleeping stage. Instead, waking up for small amounts of time and going back to sleep leads the body to receiving only fragmented sleep. And then when you finally wake up, you may notice feeling extremely tired.

Drinking a great amount of caffeine the night before

Another factor that might cause you to wake up feeling tired is the amount of caffeine you may have ingested the night before. Caffeine is known to consist of elements that help a person stay alert and awake for some amount of time. That is why it delays or blocks those receptors in your brain that promote sleep. Having caffeine right before bed or a few hours prior can hinder the brain to enter the sleeping stage. Moreover, as a stimulant can even cause you to wake up multiple times during the night. This repetitive process of going in and out of sleep is another leading reason that makes you feel tired after waking up in the morning.

An extremely poor sleeping environment

Yes! Your quality of sleep is greatly dependent upon the environment you are sleeping in; whether it is that one bright light that has been left open in the room, the temperature being too hot or too cold, or even the condition of your mattress. Morning exhaustion, feeling of fatigue and aching body parts are a consequence of the grade of mattress you are sleeping on. Researchers provide some insight on how the age of the mattress may also hinder sleeping pattern. Another aspect that you must pay attention to is how mattresses house allergens such as dust mites or bed bugs which can lead to sneezing and coughing constantly throughout the night. This is extremely disrupting for those people who already have problems associated with asthma and allergies. Waking up after a long night of not being able to get proper rest also leads to tiredness.

Are you sharing a bed?

If your bed-partner has the habit of snoring throughout the night, chances are you might have to wake up constantly to get them to stop! Furthermore, sleeping in a loud environment is making you lose at least an hour of sleep each night which may cause discomfort and an interrupted sleep pattern. Additionally, if you own a pet, their movement and varying sleep pattern can also affect your own. Reducing the background noise, and removing obstacles that might cause disruption during the night can help significantly to be able to improve sleep quality and help you wake up feeling more active.

You may have a sleeping disorder

If you feel that your quality of sleep and the environment around you is not something that is leading you to wake up tired in the morning, then there are many underlying and medical conditions that might be the cause. Many conditions such as insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy are commonly diagnosed in people that complain regards feeling tired when waking up. At times symptoms may not be extreme but they can result in lack of proper sleep and disturbed sleep patterns, which ultimately affect the energy level of a person.

The bottom line is that waking up tired in the morning after a seemingly full night’s sleep is quite common than you think it may be. Bringing some changes to your routine or speaking to a professional can make some amount of difference in being able to improve the amount and quality of sleep that you are getting and not waking up tired.
