I have never been disciplined enough to give exercising in the morning an adequate trial. I do it occasionally. But doing it everyday would be very tough. I think you're right in that it would eventually get easier. But I've been told by some sleep experts that exercising at the peak of the day is actually the most beneficial for you in terms of feeling sleepier earlier. I don't know if this logic works for atypical depressives though. Perhaps exercising in the morning would make more sense. It's just so damn hard to do -- talk about motivation. Perhaps I can pull it off eventually.
Good luck with the morning routine. I'm optimistic that you'll see some good results. Let me know how it goes.
> Hi jrbecker,
> Thanks so much for the information! By the way, I read somewhere that exercise suppresses melatonin for about 12 or more hours. In the past, you've discussed your circadian phase shift, and I wonder whether you've ever tried exercising in the morning, every day for a few weeks? I find that the later I exercise, the later I stay awake at night. I'm going to try to go back to exercising in the morning and see whether that helps my delayed sleep phase.
