I'm such a sleepyhead lately!

I'm not kidding. It's hard to get up in the mornings. I work while my daughter is in preschool, but lately I'm always fighting the temptation to curl up in the recliner and take a nap instead. Sometimes when I sit with her after school and watch TV, I nod off. Granted it's children's television, but still--is it the weather? Or is it getting over the flu? Depression, maybe? Other than coffee, which I'm maxed out on, what can I do? I tried 5-Hour Energy but didn't feel any zap at all.

  • It's the cold for me, and less daylight hours. Not sleeping well. Too much caffeine can backfire too.
