    How do you feel when you wake up?

    Two years ago, I remember it as if it was yesterday, after a pretty regular night at college, I woke up the next morning (at 7:00, alarm was on for 7:30) feeling more refreshed than ever before. i had slept what, 6 hours? but there it was, I felt like god, literally like god. I could fly and zap things with my fingers and all sorts of other crazy stuff.. but anyway, lets get to the point.


    I don't think I am the only person experiencing this, but why oh why do I always inevitably wake up very tired in the morning? there have been (VERY FEW!) occasions in which I woke up, even without much sleep, immensely refreshed. I would like it to be that way every day.. is that possible? anyone know how to do it?

    Some days I feel tired, some days I feel refreshed. It definitely depends on the day.

    Try setting your alarm to different times or going to bed at different times to see how much sleep is optimum for you.

    I used to thrive on 6 hours, but now I'm up to 8 or close to it.

    How rested you feel also depends on how you slept, not just how long. I can remember a few years ago being exhausted all the time even though I was getting plenty of sleep. The problem was, I wasn't getting any rest.

    Think of how much better Ubuntu would be if 90% of the users were refreshed instead of tired!






    P.S. It's awesome anyway, though.

    Mostly refreshed for me.. sometimes tired for the first 30 minutes, once I'm up I feel good.

    I have one of those alarm clocks that can be set to radio, so I wake up to music. It's set to a classical station, good way to wake up... except yesterday.
    I was sleeping deeply, happy and relax, when all of a sudden the music of karmina starts blasting at me! omg! I thought it was the end of the world.

    Today I feel great though, I think my optimum is about 7:30 hours.

    Oh.. on average, if you look at the sleep pattern, you go through a full "set" every hour and a half. So it's a good thing to aim for 1.5 hour multiplier of sleep + 30 mins.

    6 hours + 30 mins is good
    7:30 hours + 30 mins is good
    etc.

    The 30 minutes extra is the time it takes you to fall asleep, if you only need 10 mins, then sleeping 6:10 or 7:40 *should* give you a very restful sleep. (in general)

    It's hard to wake up someone that is in the deep sleep stage, but if you do wake up during that time, chances are you'll feel really tired, heavy, and maybe in a bad mood.
