More sleep: Often we short change our body's need for sleep and it responds by trying to catch up on sleep when we're not doing anything stimulating or physically active. If you are drowsy at times that you need to be alert, get it checked out. Falling asleep at the wrong time, like driving a car, can be deadly.
