    Go to sleep one hour earlier.

    Start eating a healthy balanced diet.

    Go to the gym at least 4 hours a week.

          No it doesn’t. Yes, it can work, for a rare minority, who are abusing their body. I do items 1,2 & 3 and still heavily relate to the picture.

            BS. Go to literally any doctor and say “I’m having trouble keeping energy at work” and the first thing they’ll prescribe is sleep, diet, and exercise. Why? Because it’s all the overwhelming majority of people need to prevent fatigue.

              They prescribe that because that’s the bare minimum necessary to not be fatigued. But most people don’t waste their time going to the doctor without already having tried those simple things.

      While we are talking about health, exercise and that stuff.

      Vitamin D helps against fatigue so give it a try, especially in the winter.

      Sleep hygiene. Practice it.

      Walk 10,000 steps a day at least.

      Open your damned windows and get oxygen in your home.

      Don’t eat between 2 hours before bed, and when you get up in the morning.

        Boy I wish someone would have shared this with me when I was working 2 jobs, struggling to afford rent, raising teenagers, and getting home at 11pm when I had to get up at 6:30am. If I would have just worked a little harder…

        I appreciate that you’re trying to be helpful, but it feels like telling a depressed person to just eat right and exercise and they’ll get over it.

          I should have stated that the advice won’t work for everyone. I’m sorry my comment came across as attacking, insensitive, or dismissive. I’ve had sleep issues in my life and have been infuriated by “just relax and go to sleep” advice (I’m too lazy/tired to do the SpongeBob sarcastic text)

          I hope you’re in a better place nowadays. My apologies again for the upset I caused.

            No worries 🙂. I am in a much better place these days, but as a 51yo woman my hormones have tanked and sleep is now a foreign concept. I exercise regularly, eat a reasonable diet, wind down and go to bed then get up at the same time 7 days a week, but that wasn’t enough. Melatonin alone leaves me feeling groggy, but I’ve found micro dosing THC prior to bed to be helpful. 2.5 mg an hour before bed then another 2.5 when I lay down buys me about 6 hrs of uninterrupted sleep before I fade in and out. It’s a huge improvement from waking every 90 minutes and struggling to fall back asleep.

              My wife is in perimenopause too, (we’re both 49) so I definitely understand what you’re going through. My poor, poor wife was really messed up until she managed to get some hormone replacement patches. Thankfully we live in a legal marijuana state so she’s able to get some relief from pain and anxiety.
