Do you generally wake up feeling “together” physically and mentally, or feeling lost, mussed up, grouchy, confused, or whatever? (Don’t answer if you don’t want to confess, LOL!)
If the latter, what do you do to get really awake? And what do you think makes this difference for people who wake up in one state or the other?
If I can make 8 hours sleep, then I wake ready to go.
If there has been less than 8 hours, then I’ll wake up somewhat more slowly, with more effort required to get systems up to speed (sometimes requiring caffeine).
