'Tis the season but I'm just not feeling it. I'd bought several lavender sachets when I was in Belgium and strung up one on my side of the bed and brought another to the office. They smell good at least but the therapeutic benefit has yet to kick in.
I have so much to be grateful for: my health, my marriage, my family (even though they drive me nuts - too boring to recount here), my friendships near and far, my job/career, my education...I can go on and on. But my attitude of gratitude is sorely missing.
Maybe it's seasonal affective disorder. Maybe it's my meds. Maybe it's something else. I don't know. But I'm tired of feeling tired for no good reason.

I agree with trying a little exercise. I used to do it in the morning just because it made me feel like I got something accomplished for the day, but any time you can fit in is good. A walk or some push-ups or sit-ups will get your blood flowing and hopefully chase away the blues.
If not, you'll at least have a sweaty, sexy sheen.
I walk pretty regularly (no car!) but any other structured exercise really tires me out. I've been checked out and I'm perfectly healthy except that I'm one of the few people on the planet who aren't energized after working out.
