Beating Hypersomnia at the Office

We all hit that 2 p.m. wall from time to time –– your coffee wears off or that big lunch kicks in and you’re fighting the urge to nap. Now imagine that feeling all the time, regardless of your caffeine or food intake. Hypersomnia is a condition that results in excessive daytime sleepiness (or EDS). This means that almost regardless of what you are doing, such as working or driving, you may find it nearly impossible to avoid falling asleep.

Hypersomnia leads to excessive daytime sleepyness


This won’t just affect your work output. Hypersomnia can also wreak havoc on your critical thinking abilities, as well as your overall energy levels.


Many factors can contribute to hypersomnia, including:

  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep apnea
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Weight
  • Drug/alcohol consumption
  • A family history of hypersomnia
  • Depression
