If you get enough sleep, i.e. 7 to 9 hours and still feel tired in the morning it is important to consult a doctor. You could be suffering from any number of problems. I had exactly the same issue, and after blood tests it was found I was deficient in folic acid. Other people I know have been found to have sleep apnea(where you stop breathing for short ...

Then move to the next. Spot check on the exercises. Sleep when you are tired, eat lightly when you are hungry, drink plenty of water, Yoga or stretching before you sleep. ...
