Winter doldrums

Most of the folks I know, including many of my blogging friends, seem to be voicing some version of this:

I’m feeling very stuck right now. Work, weather, season, what have you. I don’t know whether to get up earlier or later, go to bed earlier or later, walk more, work less, or what. I’ve got that “hamster on a wheel” feeling and nothing I do seems to kick me out of it.
Yepper, sounds familiar.

As usual this time of year, my even more surly alter-ego Walhydra says:

"It's just the old mammalian brain stem, noticing the short days, and telling us to put on a layer of fat and hibernate till spring."

I'm trying to skip the layer of fat part.
