The sleep specialist has claimed that decreased concentration, headaches, fatigue and even obesity are some of the things happening in your body.
Olivia Arezolo of Sydney said, while you might wonder if spending more than nine hours sleeping regularly could make you leap from bed the next day, when in reality it can often mean the opposite.
“Studies show that long sleep is as problematic as short sleep – it can increase your risk of mortality by 30 percent,” Olivia told FEMAIL.
‘It is mainly derived from a group of cardiovascular diseases associated with heart disease, such as heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.’
Olivia detailed the five things happening in your body when you close your eyes for several hours, and follow a 10-step routine for a night’s sleep.
A sleep specialist claimed that concentration, headaches, fatigue, and even obesity are one of the few things that happen in your body when you sleep.

The first thing that can paradoxically happen is to realize fatigue the next day.
“Regularly can throw off our body’s natural circadian rhythms or our internal body clock,” Olivia said.
If you sleep for more than nine consecutive hours, you may feel nervous or almost jet-lagged and in need of another nap because your internal clock is out of sync:
Olivia reported, “Oveling limits serotonin production, a hormone that usually makes you feel alert and energetic.”
‘In the absence of light, the body produces melatonin – the hormone that makes you feel sleepy. When you are sleeping, it is likely to be dark.
‘Therefore, more darkness may cause more sleepiness the next day.’

The second thing to see if you are guilty of too much sleep is a headache.
Many people often suffer from headaches on weekends when they sleep and try to ‘catch up’ on sleep.
“Many individuals are chronologically disadvantaged,” Olivia said.
‘So if you are trying to modify your sleep pattern, you may find yourself needing to sleep more for a short period of sleep, which sleep you will remember for weeks, months or years is.’
The specialist warns against trying to do this to get it back on track, instead recommending re-setting your body clock.
“The normal adult needs seven to nine hours of sleep per night,” Olivia said.
If you are trying to find your sweet spot, go to bed around 10:00 a week without an alarm set and without drinking alcohol and then see when you wake up naturally.
Lack of concentration in work is another side effect of regularizing and adjusting your bedtime routine.
What is Olivia Arezzolo’s 10-step bedtime routine?
1. Create a sleep sanctuary: Remove any blue lights from iPhones and appliances and keep your bedroom for sleep and relaxation.
2. block blue light: Do not allow blue light in the bedroom and prohibit it from sleeping for two hours.
3. Set a good night alarm for your phone: Turn it off at this point so that you are completely refreshed.
4. Diffuse Lavender: Diffuse lavender in your pillow or room to promote relaxation.
5. Take a shower or bath in the evening: This helps to promote relaxation 45-60 minutes before bed.
6. Drinking Chamomile Tea: Do this an hour before bed to calm you down.
7. Take a magnesium supplement: It helps to relax the muscles.
8. Practice Gratitude: Think about what you are thankful for.
9. Try meditation: This can be useful to help you sleep.
10. Practice deep breathing: It makes sleeping easier.

3. lack of concentration
According to Olivia, researchers often find that men and women who get a regular seven-hour sleep every night perform better in cognitive tests, which fluctuate between regular overlapping and less sleep.
Sleeping regularly means you can feel nervous and struggle to concentrate without a strong dose of caffeine.
4. Low mood and depression
One of the more serious side effects of oversapping is low mood and even depression.
“Research shows a relationship between overlapping and depression,” Olivia said.
‘People who have been diagnosed with the condition give evidence that 40 percent is also considered hypersomnia (long sleep).’
Olivia stated that this may be accompanied by biochemical changes in the brain associated with the pleasure hormone serotonin.
“When you spend a lot of time in bed, you’re likely to reduce your physical activity levels that are important for the release of feel-good endorphins, serotonin and dopamine,” she said.
As far as possible, try to stick to a regular sleep schedule, as well as on weekends, when it may be tempting to spend more time in bed.
Finally, sleeping too much can cause you to gain weight and obesity.
Olivia said, “Research shows that long-term sleepers gain 1.58 kg more per year than regular sleepers.”
They are 21 percent more likely to develop obesity.
If you want to reset your bedtime routine, Olivia recommends stopping all blue lights from phones and iPads in the bedroom, drinking some chamomile tea before sliding between sheets and taking a hot bath before bed .
If you are looking for a supplement that can help, it also recommends magnesium or magnesium sprays on your stomach and pulse points.
