How do you fight the exhaustion that stays with you? I can have a wonderful sleep and the next morning be dragging.
Thanks.

I would love to know how to combat this. I can wake up, feel fine, do my appointments, but then around 1:30 I crash and get exhausted and I need to drink lots of coffee. If I do go to sleep, I'm asleep for about 6-8 hours.

I noticed a difference: when I take my 15 minute break at work outside instead of inside the office, the little bit of sun I get on my face makes me feel a lot better for the rest of the day. The weather has made it difficult for me to move around more because I have bad knees and they hurt more during the cold, but I it helps when I get up even 10 minutes earlier to do yoga stretches.

It is amazing what a difference a few minutes of sunshine and fresh air can make. When I was still working, I went outside with a co-worker when she took her smoke break even though I didn't smoke.

My Verilux light helps but it doesn't feel as refreshing as the real thing.

I'm doing blue light therapy first thing in morning. Also, I take a nap at 1:30 and set the timer on my phone to wake me within 25min. That gives me enough time to get to sleep, but not oversleep and suffer the side effects of sleep inertia. I try to do the nap every day so that my body is used to it. When I get the nap, I'm less fatigued and irritable in the afternoon. I have also found it helps to have a strict bedtime and wake up time, even if I have insomnia during the night. I cut out caffeine because it was aggravating my insomnia. I'm now able to sleep 6-7 hours at night, unbroken.
