    Default how do you not collapse from exhaustion?

    I've been going from about 7am-7pm since friday and I still have a whole list of things I need to get done in the next two days and I'm not even done with today and I'm exhausted. does it get easier with time?

    and I'm gonna be judged for feeling this way and being over stimulated

    My new work schedule is 7am-7pm. Plus I have to commute, so my alarm clock goes off at 4:45am. I've just had to learn to go to bed earlier the night before. Like it's 8:52pm right now.... so it's like bed time now. Drastic from my previous schedule where I could stay awake til 3am and sleep in until 10am or so. I also eat a lot of snacks now, and that seems to give me little energy boosts. And coffee is a must in those early morning hours. Yeah, it gets easier. But I'm always beat by the end of the day.

    Make sure you get plenty of sleep at night. A full 8 hours! And congrats on going back to school.

    You'll adapt to it and it will start to feel normal. In the meantime sleep well and take a solid hour at night to just wind down and relax if you can.

    That's what I want to know. I badly need sleep to function, but resist it anyway because the time I get at home belongs to me, and I don't want to let go of a minute with my own interests for something as neutral as sleep. In the end, I just don't sleep much.

    Yes I echo the 8-hrs of sleep per night (or however much you need). Not enough sleep colors everything else and just drags you down.

    Also, be creative with how you use your transit time, depending if you can read in a moving vehicle, or nap, or listen to a book on tape or whatnot... there are plenty of options so you don't feel like you're just stuck there for that time that you're travelling.

    I would do that but I'm too anxious about missing my stops that i wouldn't be able to concentrate.
