Hi
I enjoy oversleeping as I feel it helps me escape. I know its healthy to have a balance and implement the five ways to well-being but sometimes I like to put on a meditation on YouTube and like to escape in it and always end up sleeping.

I work full time but really enjoy doing this when I am on leave as I also feel it's giving my body a rest as sleep is when we heal .

Just my opinion ... Although I'm starting on a health kick tomorrow and charging my Fitbit ready 🙂. I am comfort eating like a 🐷🐖🐽. And none of my clothes fit me, so my habits are changing. "A day at a time" hopefully.

Does the problem of oversleeping pass :confused:
Not for me it doesnt .I guess it is because sometimes I can go through nights without sleeping which makes me tired so i need to go and sleep to catch up.I did sleep through the entire weekend i think it is from depression cause that happens a lot,nothing to do or see.Even if i knit i get very bored later on.

I like many either sleep too much or not at all, I prefer to sleep too much obviously. This has happened a lot over time & seems to correct itself for a while but then it starts again. I too mediate and it’s seems to help I think.

Yes. It will.

Music helps me. Music is therapeutic. Listen to good, uplifting and encouraging music on youtube.

Also, do what you love doing or what you are good at. It will do good to you and make you happy.

I love music like the Carpenters,Petula Clark,Katy Perry.K.D.Lang among others, I do a lot of knitting and crocheting and I do most of that when I cannot sleep at night,right now I am doing a afghan for my daughter I am putting it away for Christmas.
