  • creating a comfortable sleep environment, which is dark, cool, and quiet
  • sleeping on a comfortable mattress and pillow
  • not looking at phone and computer screens in the 2 hours before going to bed

Waking up tired now and then is not uncommon. Good sleep hygiene and making appropriate lifestyle changes can go a long way in ensuring a better quality and quantity of sleep.

However, some people may continue to wake up tired despite making the appropriate changes.

These people should see a doctor, especially if other symptoms are present. Tiredness upon waking can be a symptom of an underlying health condition that requires treatment.
