Ayurvedic Remedies for Excessive Sleep
For most of us, the problem is not getting enough sleep. However, for some it is too much sleep. Some people want to sleep 9, 10, or more hours every night. In spite of this, they still feel heavy and sleepy when they get up in the morning and show all signs of lack of sleep such as: yawn all day long, feel like taking a nap in the afternoon, etc.
Excessive sleep is caused by an aggravated Kapha. Kapha dosha is heavy and dull, and an excess of it in our system makes us feel slow and lazy.
The solution to excess sleep is simply to follow a Kapha- pacifying diet and daily routine.
