    You may be getting too much sleep. Every person is different in how much sleep they need.

    Hello from another 20 year old student. It could have a lot to do with where you are in your circadian cycle when you wake up. If you've come out of deep sleep or REM sleep you will feel more groggy and disoriented, affecting you for the rest of the day. That happens to me all the time, I hate it. Try waking up at different times, after different lengths of sleep to see how many hours you need to wake up refreshed.

    Also, getting a good workout a couple hours before you go to bed will help you sleep better and wake up more refreshed.

    It is possible you have sleep apnea and are in an awaken state periodically during the night and don't even know it. Do you snore, because snoring causes this. Eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise, see your doctor or visit a sleep study.

    Too much sleep and lack of deep sleep can be the reasons for this. Try to sleep a little less and observe what happens and adopt some sleep strategies such as meditation and relaxation just before you sleep.

    while snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, it doesn't cause sleep apnea....still, if you waken tired from a long sleep, it is because that sleep was not a restful sleep and apnea is often a culprit. Suggest you seek a doctor and get a sleep study done to find out why you wake up tired.

    has anyone ever mentioned that you snore?

    Sometime sleep apnea will make you feel tired even after sufficient sleep.

    Also, is your bed comfortable? A bad mattress could have you tossing and turning all night without really waking up.

    Are you allergic to anything in your house, air fresheners, scented candles, mold, etc.

    Are you getting sick?

    Are you eating properly?

    b/c your body enters a dep sleep mode...a new report came out not too long ago that suggests that your body only needs like 6-7 hours to fully function and to be healthy

    Your body enjoys the sleep and does not want to aaken unlike when you do not sleep enough it has not had enought time to enjoy itself so it is not as 'attatched'
