    So I'm a well cool TSR-ian and I can't let my streetcred be damaged by this post, hence the anony.

    Anyway I used to be able to function off 6-7 hours of sleep quite well. More often than not it was 7 hours, being in bed by 11 and up just after 6 - usually for a run or the gym.

    But for the past month or so I wake up to my alarm with a headache and need more like 9-10 hours of sleep. This has an affect on my productivity and exercise, because I just feel demotivated if I'm still bed past 9am and it makes me feel down for the rest of the day.

    My workload hasn't really changed, so is there any reason I'm experiencing this and is there any advice as to how I could get back to my old schedule?

    Maybe sleep's just catching up with you. It happened to me last year (I was getting ~6 and suddenly started to need >8). Try to entertain your body and give it the sleep it needs.

    You reckon? Thing is I've always had that amount of sleep. 6-7 as long as I can remember. Just a bit odd that at 20 it has begun to catch up on me. You'd think now is the age that I'd be able to pull it off easily.

    I've no idea then, dude(ette) :/ Sorry! I mean I think it can happen. Things can change without reason. Are you sure nothing has changed in your work/schedule that's could cause any more exhaustion?

    Well now that I think of it, stress could have something to do with it.

    Stress is grossly underrated. It caused me so much exhaustion. I think in the case of stress, you need to both get more sleep and work on de-stressing during the day.
