I have been oversleeping at night, and catnapping during the day a lot for the past two weeks. This of course has led to the viscious cycle of waking up tired…followed shortly thereafter by the strong urge to go right back to sleep (which I tend to give into). However, oversleeping is known to cause depression due to deviation from the normal rationing of serotonin that is regulated by a healthy sleep schedule. I take it that this accounts for the majority of the gloominess and lethargy I’ve been experiencing, not to mention the frequent headaches. Too much goddamn sleep.
The plan of action now is to go do some jumping jacks, stop eating this sesame chicken (eating causes sleepy), drink a pint of water, pop some multivitamins, pile a bunch of clothes and shit on top of my bed so I can’t get in it, and watch an intellectually stimulating movie.
Gotta break the cycle.
