Heavy head, rests near.

The tired bed holds much weight.

Sad mornings always. 

Newton’s first law of motion states things in motion stay in motion. Fact. Another fact? Things in stillness remain in stillness—and sleep is no exception. You can be all kicking and writhing and squealing in your sleep, yet your mind is still. And the instant you wake up there is a period in which the momentum of your unconsciousness carries itself into the real world, and you are left all sad and groggy. 

This is called sleep inertia. 

So when you’re waking up on Tuesday morning, after going to bed just 3 hours ago, it makes sense that you’re not jumping up to seize the day. You’ve hardly started sleeping, and now you want to start moving? You didn’t even get the ball rolling.
