While it is easy to find information detailing the health concerns associated with too little sleep, what are the consequences of getting too much sleep? Oversleeping is associated with many of the same health concerns that have been linked with a lack of adequate rest. Sleeping too much puts you at risk for physical conditions such as obesity, headaches, diabetes, and heart disease. Too much sleep may also cause feelings of depression and listlessness, which may in turn affect your socioeconomic status. When you sleep too much, you feel more tired rather than more alert. You may put off social events or even work in favor of getting more sleep because you feel fatigued. While sleeping late every once in a while is not a concern, if you find yourself chronically oversleeping and still experiencing feelings of tiredness, visit a sleep specialist for an evaluation.
