Of course you can override it with excitement or other kinds of stimuli but those efforts are futile and have great drawbacks, might as well go for amphetamines if you want to go that way.
Seriously? Amphetamines are just as good as Zumba or Netflix?
One is addicted to the pleasure of drowsiness, using it to cope with human state, one resorts to it when connected with the unpleasant. It is confirmed to release neurotransmitters connected with pleasure and satisfaction, one is probably also enjoying sleeping and lazy stretching. Longing for vecations - that is also craving, longing for otherwise existence... Zumba and netflix are just more addictions one cultivates, more or less to release the same chemicals. One could micro-dose Amphetamines and achieve the same effect of wakefulness and all of these addictions have drawbacks including amphetamines but it would save yone a lot of time and it is easier to achieve the effect of wakefulness, to that extent it is better. That being said i do not recommend it, i was making a point.
Give serotonin+drowsiness+sleep+dopamine+sleep+regulation a google search, science has obviously not figured it out, but all research will support the Sutta explaination of orgination of drowsiness. I do not say it is the only reason for lack of energy, there is a comperhensive list in the Sutta.
There are absolutely no conclusive studies linking D3 to alertness.
Before one blames the lack of sun for sleepiness, consider this;
