Oversleeping Health Risks : People who sleep more than nine hours per night are more likely to develop a host of mental & physical health problems. Here are some negative consequences of oversleeping. 

Oversleeping Health Risks: A good night's sleep is essential for the body and mind but oversleeping can put you at certain health risks. The amount of sleep you require is determined by your age and level of activity, as well as your overall health and lifestyle habits. Individuals who sleep more than nine hours per night are more likely to develop a host of mental & physical health problems.

Here are some negative consequences of oversleeping you must know:

Obesity

Research indicates those who regularly sleep 9 to 10 hours a night are more likely to experience excess weight gain and obesity.

Back pains

While sleep and rest are often associated with healing, oversleeping can exacerbate symptoms. Spending too much time in bed can aggravate back or shoulder pain.

Depression

Oversleeping is a major symptom of depression . Although insomnia is more commonly associated with depression than oversleeping, approximately 15% of people with mental illness sleep excessively.

Headaches

Headaches can be caused by getting too much sleep. Excessive sleep can lower serotonin levels that can lead to migraines or severe headaches.

Exhaustion

Research suggests people who sleep for more than nine hours have difficulty waking up. They also feel tired and lethargic during the day, indicating sleep deprivation.
