      It must be something common to those of us north of the 49th parallel. I haven't sleped much in the last week or so. With any luck I will get to try Wayne02's cure tonight

            -- Broad Spectrum lighting... Yes, it matters a lot.. Ott lights or equivalent.

            -- Watch the Flour. lighting. It does wear.....

            Lift weights. You may not feel better, but - done right - you are too tired to complain.

              Try an OTT light, it is sun spectrum in colour and generally not too expensive unlike those "medical grade" lights.

                I get this now and then. My general solution is to try and spend as much weekend time outside summer AND winter regardless of weather, and make a special point during the fall and winter sunny days. Sounds too easy, but this was a suggestion by a researcher at Dartmouth Hitchcock. Been five years since that suggestion, and it seems to have worked.

                Geeze, I find that in the winter, I have to resort to the dark times doing "shop therapy".

                    I think I have improved my shop lighting by installing some GE Full Spectrum Flourescent tubes in many of the fixtures. These are quite expensive - at about $6 each - compared to normal 4 foot tubes -at about $1 each, but I bought 10 of them when Home Depot changed brands from GE to Philips, and dropped the price to about $3 each. I use one full spec tube per 2 tube fixture. It is pretty well lit when all fixtures on.

                      Years ago I had a rubber lined rock tumbler running just outside the bedroom door, worked great(white noise?), course I was single then.
