Many people know that not getting enough sleep can be detrimental to their health, however, what many individuals do not understand is that there can always be too much of a good thing. While our body needs sleep to revitalize and replenish, sleeping too much (Hypersomnia) can actually be harmful to one's health. Interestingly enough, the same problems such as heart disease and diabetes which are associated with not getting enough sleep, are also associated with people who sleep too much. This is partially due to the fact that those who over sleep are limited in mobility and not getting the correct amount of exercise. Also, those who oversleep are prone to become more depressed and stressed out. Life and health is always about balance. A healthy adult should generally get between 7-9 hours of sleep. It varies depending on the person and the age of the individual. Other symptoms that are related to oversleeping may include the following:
In addition, hypersomnia, can be linked back to other serious medical conditions such as anxiety, depression, and other sleep disorders. Certain medications can also make you prone to more sleepiness. If you find that you are continuously taking naps throughout the day and still feeling restless, then talk to your doctor. This could be a sign of a more serious condition. However, before you are quick to panic, not everyone who sleeps excessively has a problem, but if you find that this particular condition is disrupting your everyday life, then maybe it is time to seek medical attention.
