We all probably find it hard to get out of the bed in the morning, sometimes waking up can be one of the hardest things. Dysania is most likely a form of chronic fatigue syndrome but I am sure we have all suffered from Dysania at one point in time. The condition isn’t formally recognized but if you or you know someone who is suffering from Dysania then you should look into if you are suffering from some sort of anxiety or depression. It can also not be related to any one of those just a matter of getting more motived for your day.
What is Dysania
Dysania is the state of finding it hard to get out of the bed in the morning. Dysania is also known as Clinomania, from the Greek clino (bed) and mania (addiction) which means you are literally an addicted to your bed. This might not be totally a bad thing, there is nothing better than waking up in a warm bubble after a good night’s sleep and procrastinating about getting out of the bed in the morning.
Dysania as a condition isn’t formally recognized but it is used to describe someone with extreme difficulty with getting out of the bed in the morning. Just because it isn’t formally recognized doesn’t mean that it’s not a condition or that is shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Dysania vs Tired
Well one my think that everyone is sluggish, tired, lethargic or even exhausted when you first get up in the morning, especially before the first cup of coffee. What really separates someone with Dysania and from actually being tired is that they might suffer from some form of anxiety making it extremely hard for them to get out of bed in the morning. If you are just waking up tired or frustrated then you probably are just like the rest of us and don’t suffer from Dysania but are just tired. When getting up is stressful and making you feel anxious and other strong emotions then you probably do suffer from Dysania. It is recommended if you do suffer from Dysania to consult a doctor to see if they can offer any coping strategy’s
