It happens to me too. In the spring as the daylight gets longer I get more energy and can work longer days. sunlight is revitalizing. I slug through winter.

Not this time of year - the cool fall weather actually energizes me but, the freezing cold winter weather - not so much! Winter weather makes me want to hit the hay a lot earlier than any other season!

Many people are impacted by shorter as well as longer days... some much more so than others.

There are many people are prescribed SUN (Light Therapies)

LINK to outside Article during the winter month's to offset both physical and psychological impacts of shorter days. They are told to purchase indoor artificial SUN sources and sit in front of them for minutes to hours a day during the winter.

Some people who have even more dramatic responses to shorter days are advised to relocate to southern latitudes to combat these issues.

Good luck

Fall is my favorite season for many reasons. I don't notice being more tired.

My suggestion, add a twenty-minute nap to your daily schedule.  One of my agents used to close door, fold his arms on his desk and put his head down for his afternoon nap.

I think for those of us above the 45th parallel we become accustomed to some very long summer days, compared to those in the lower lattitudes.  Now, with the fairly rapid shortening of the daylight hours, our internal "clock" tells us earlier in the day to wind down and get to bed!
