It’s 7:00 in the morning, and I’m in the office: showered, shaved, dressed, caffeinated. I was in bed by 9:30 last night. Then I woke up at 2:00. Then 4:00. Then 5:00. I finally just got out of bed at 6:00. I cannot go on like this. I’m too tired.
There are no loud noises in the night waking me up. I’m not drinking excessive caffeine, just one cup of coffee in the morning and one Diet Coke later in the day (usually just before or after lunch). I’m eating healthily. I’m exercising. I’m not on any new medications. Maybe it’s just the energy of the semester that’s keeping me wired.
I need some suggestions. What have you found helpful when you find yourself in this situation?
