might have been a good thing as sometimes our bodies know best.

I too fell back asleep this morning. I am so thankful I woke up after 6 extra minutes since I do not use a snooze button.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I definitely noticed a difference in my awareness after I started to hit the snooze button less. I have it set for about 5 mins so I could hit it 3-4 times before actually getting up. This definitely made me laggy first thing in the morning. Recently, I've started not using it or only hitting it once. I'm definitely more awake those mornings even if I don't get out of bed right away (reading or w/e).

They do say it's better to set your alarm for as late as you can and then force yourself up (otherwise you restart the REM cycle [by hitting the snooze button] and you wind up more tired than if you'd just gotten up).

Go to bed earlier. Count sheep, watch TV, read a book—whatever makes you fall asleep. Then let your body wake up by itself and see how long it actually needs to sleep to function.

It could be your diet too. Depending on what I eat, that will make me sleepy and I won't be able to function for the rest of the day.

For napping (which I never do) I've been told to nap loosely hanging on to a set of car keys. When they drop and wake you up you'll have achieved the perfect mini-nap.

Good luck.

Why can't I get some added rest when I feel like it? Everytime I try and do this is, it is hard to wake up the second time and all day no matter what I cannot fully wake. I am thinking I will have trouble sleeping tonight too as that happens most times I take a nap also. Anyone here have this same problem?
