I can't think of any other actual reason than the damn time change but I have been struggling with my mornings this last while.
During the "Summer", I would wake up fairly awake, if that makes sense. As in, by the time I was like "oh, ok, wake up time" or my alarm went off I was alert and like, well ok! But now? Lately? It's like I have to drag myself through soup, or mud, or something and I just can't seem to wake up.... un-groggy?
I mean, don't get me wrong, I am SO grateful for sleep. Like, so. I know how awful and upsetting it is when I'm not sleeping at all or getting those terrible half sleeps, so I'm incredibly grateful that I am sleeping and resting.
It's just weird that it feels like I'm suddenly taking hours to "wake up" when I was doing pretty well at it for ages and ages.
And really, as much as I whine about the time change it is the only major difference in my life in the last month... so....
Sigh. Maybe if it is due to the time change and light change, maybe that will mean that soon I'll adjust to it and be able to wake up when I wake up. You know?
But man oh man, this has sure been a groggy bunch of mornings. Gah.
