If you’re sleeping between 7 and 9 hours a night you’re almost certainly fine. Anything more than 10 hours might be worth a little more thought. Follow this link to read on sleeping too much in more detail.
There is some evidence that suggests sleeping too long can be bad for your health. However, if you’re healthy and go without too many daytime habits that disrupt sleep (caffeine, lack of daylight and useing screens late into the evening) you can rely on your body and brain to put you to sleep and wake you up at the right times for you.
Some people naturally sleep for long periods of time (up to 10 hours). These people, like those that need only a few hours of sleep, are in the extreme minority.
It is natural to wake up feeling groggy after a long sleep. However, if you stay groggy for longer periods of time (30 minutes) or if you fall asleep when you shouldn’t then talk to your doctor.
Sleeping too much is almost certainly not something to be worrying about for most people.
