I always feel sleepy despite sleeping for eight to nine hours. I cannot concentrate on my studies, and my performance has been affected. My grades have gone down, and I am scared that my grades will decline my career. What should I do to stop myself from falling asleep frequently?
I read your query and can understand your concern.
It looks like it is affecting your daily routine and academic performance, which can be frustrating. Though there is a need for history for presenting problems like,
When did it start, and what is the frequency?
Are there any lifestyle changes or relationship issues?
I suggest you consult a sleep specialist and take a sleep questionnaire and test. Also, rule out psychological causes of hypersomnia by assessing for triggers, and stressors, as by-products of sleeping too much can lead to anxiety and depression. A follow-up session is necessary if the issues are persistent.
Also, meanwhile, follow simple sleep hygiene.
Wake up at a set time and go to bed at the same time every day.
Have a fresh and clean sleeping space.
Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine.
Eat healthy food and exercise well.
Exercise can stimulate hormones and trigger rest and digestion patterns.
I hope this helps.
Thank you and take care.
