That's a hard question.  Diet modification is something to look into.  There's a lot of research suggesting your gut and your brain are in a direct relationship.  So I would recommend tapping into diet modification - what kinds of food you eat.  The diet has a big impact on energy, so perhaps some elimination of certain foods i would talk to a dietitian a nutritionist and get an opinion.

Naps are very common especially after trauma.  It's also important to see how many hours you sleep during the night.  Do you sleep too many or too few hours?  Exercise and meditation are also worth looking into.
