    Hey Guys;

    Well, I have found on days where I don't normally have to get up in the morning (Weekends and every other Friday) I have been getting way excessive amount of sleep (often exceeding 11 hours, more often than not, 12).

    Is this just my body's way of trying to catch up on sleep lost in the week for waking up early for lectures or could there be an underlying health problem?

    EDIT:
    I have this naturally body alarm clock thing which pretty much wakes me up the minute I decide I wanna wake up the night before without the need for an alarm clock (say I wanna wake up at 05:20 am, I often will give or take 2 mins). So, on days I have lectures the day after, I often get around 6-7 hours of sleep a night.

    By the sounds of things it's more of a psychological thing such as your body doesn't have a reason to wake up, so you don't. Hence the natural body alarm clock you mention.

    OP, do you get enough sleep during the weekdays, do you feel tired?

    I would say that maybe just set an alarm for the weekends, for about 9-10 hours sleep, so you don't sleep excessively, then hopefully your body can readjust.

    I thought I was the only one like that.I haven't set an alarm clock in five years.before I go to sleep I look at the clock. I say I want to be up at 4:15 a.m. and I will wake up at 4:10 a.m.
