Getting up when you wake up..?

I often wake and feel wide awake, quite often to go for a piss. This may only be after 5 hours sleeps. I then go back to bed until my alarm rings 1-4 hours later and often feel much worse and struggle to get out of bed. Maybe it is psychological as I know I have to leave for work the second time I wake or maybe I'm 'over sleeping' or sleeping 'wrong'.
 
Has anyone read into sleep and why this happens? Is it better to just get up and kill time when you naturally wake up or do you just get a crash later in the day because of the overall lack of sleep?

    I get that too...if its a day off I know I can sleep in I dont set the alarm...wake naurally..but its to damn easy jsut to put my head back down and sleep in for a couple of more hours..usually reuslting in a mild headache for awhile, or just generally being more groggy/ head up the ass syndrome.

    I won't get into detail and bore everyone's arse off but it's to do with which stage of the sleep cycle you are woken during. You should go back to sleep because you will crash.

    I always wake up 5 mins or so before my alarm goes off. It's really strange. When I wake up then I feel really awake (like you say) and then if I fall back to sleep and the alarm clock wakes me up 5 mins later, i feel incredibly tired/groggy.

    Weird. Not sure why it happens. I usually just get up the first time and hop into the shower.

    Does anyone else find it really hard to sleep in? I get up at 8am every morning (monday-friday) for work and at weekends will never sleep in past 9am.

    the sleep cycle is 90 to 110 minutes long, if you wake up between cycles you'll feel fine, if you wake up during you will be groggy. you'll only wake up during a cycle if something wakes you up.

    does the need to take a sprinkle count as something waking you up - or do you mean something more like a loud noise or someone hitting you with something?
     
    i wake up after only a few hours sleep as well but always go back to bed, then i forget to set an alarm and oversleep! new strategy for sleep now is set my alarm for 10h after i go to bed and get up then at the latest

    What exactly is a cycle?...

     
    5 stages to each cycle, with each cycle lasting 90-120 mins, so you go through several cycles each night.

    This has happened to me most of my adult adult life.  I often go for a pee about 5 or 6 am and feel fresh as a daisy only to return to bed, get another 2 to 3 hours sleep and feel groggy as hell. Usually I have to force myself out bed. I try to do this no later than 8:30, since I work mostly from home I don't have a set schedule, but even that is a struggle. Often the grogginess stays with me all day and I end up thinking "WHY DIDN'T I STAY UP EARLIER WHEN I FELT FRESH?""!!

    there is an iphone app that works on this cycle, something along the lines of you setting the time you nedd to be up for and the alarm wakes you at the best point of your cycle nearest to the alarm time.
    Got it on my phone but never actually used it...
    Few members on here were saying they had used it a while ago.
    dunnow if it works but the ideas ok.

    when i come off a night shift i take very little sleep at the end of the last shift in order to be tired that same night and therefore im able to sleep at night and start getting my body clock turned back around for night time sleeping again.
    A guy i used to work with told me to base my sleep around 3 hourly amounts.
    I now take about 3 hrs sleep at the end of the last night shift and this does seem to be the right amount, anymore too much, any less...well just not enough , on 3 i feel like sh1t but it seems to be an amount that i can function on for the day and begin to get back into a night time sleep cycle.

    needing to piss doesn't count as your body will wake you to do that at the end of a cycle and alarm or other loud noise or someone waking you counts.

    I have no need for that app, I own three cats. Cats figure out the best time to wake you - when they get hungry - and the best way to do it - normally by meowing, clawing, biting, chasing and generally annoying the fcuk out of you - to guarantee that you feel like sh1t all day.
     
    The iCat, thats what you need.

    I naturally wake up at 5am every morning, even if i haven't gone to bed to the early hours...  It sucks cos if i get up, round about 1ish i start to feel the 'lull' and have to fight like hell to ride it out

    You do realise that microwaves admitted from a mobile have been proven to cause dna damage and cancer, don't think sleeping with the thing under your pillow would be a good idea!! :-)
