What can I do to help myself get going in the morning (avoiding caffeine)? I wake at 5am and get 8-9 hrs of sleep per night.

Morning excercise: It is not clear what you mean by "get going". You may be suffering from depression. If you are mentally/emotionally not ready, but physically okay, try getting into a routine of aerobic excercise in the morning. Vigorous excercise is also therapeutic for depression, just in case.
