In a year plagued with stress and challenges, we need sound rest more than ever to function and lead productive lives. But this seemingly simple activity is problematic for millions of Americans. Why do we feel worse when we wake up, after a long sleep, than we did when we went to bed? It’s a complex story of individual physiology, lifestyle, health, and bad habits that exude in our patterns of behavior. It’s called ‘sleep inertia’ and it’s due to a lack of the brain and body, booting up in the morning. It’s a lack of oxygen in the muscles and brain, which makes you feel sleepy even after having a good 8-hour sleep. But, there are other causes too.
