The following self-help measures may be useful:

  • Try to divide the day into sessions of rest and work.
  • Graded exercise may be useful. Try to set yourself a progressive increase in activity week by week.
  • Set realistic goals for yourself.
  • Make dietary changes: in particular, reduce your intake of alcohol and cut out drinks containing caffeine.
  • Try to reduce stress (see Relaxation exercises).
  • Join a support group so that you do not feel isolated.
