    I've been getting a good amount of sleep every night, but the next day, I feel so tired that I might as well have had none. It's strange though because some days, I'll wake up feeling full of energy and others, I'll wake up feeling shattered. I often find myself having to sleep in the day just to have the energy to get work done in the evening. Anyone experience the same thing and have any recommendations?

    Do some exercise regularly (by this I don't mean some light hearted exercise, but something that'll get your heart rate up and making you sweat). Its proven to help fatigue.

    The other main thing mentioned by the other user is diet: eating more greens, small frequent meals (especially breakfast which is really important) will boost your energy. Eating specific food in the morning can also make you feel more awake and help you get through the day. Fuel your body with healthy protein, healthy fat, veggies or fruit regularly.

    In addition to above drink lots of water, and plan to sleep early everyday (at the same time). You could take a nap during the day, which is quite beneficial. If everything fails, see a doctor.

    How much is a "decent amount of sleep" to you? Teenagers (I'm assuming you're a teenager) need about 9 hours sleep ideally. It's more than adults cos you're doing a lot of growing and developing which needs more energy.
    Other than making sure you're getting enough sleep, eating and drinking well and avoiding things like caffeine I would suggest you pop in to see your GP. It's possible you have something like a vitamin deficiency which is meaning you don't have enough energy. It's simple to test for- just a blood test and should be easily treatable with diet changes or supplements so it's totally worth getting checked out to make sure.

    Hope that helps
