Why am I more tired sleeping 6 hours than sleeping 3 hours?

You are going to bed at the wrong time, FOR YOU.

Remember you have a specific chronotype (early bird, night owl, etc), and if you wake up, at a time that is not consistent with your chronotype, it can make mornings miserable.

For example if you are a night owl and you are waking up at 6 am, even if you went to bed at 10 (giving you 8 hours to sleep), you will still feel terrible, because your brain still wants to produce melatonin, while you are trying to wake up!
