Sleep. I know that's weird in our crowd, but it's true.

Also, when really tired, not make decisions.

Oh, god, I love sleeping when I'm tired. But I'm hoping people will have some ideas I can try at work :)

Damn, 'cause sleep was my main idea too. Although "stare blankly at my screen, then look for distraction on the internet" is also very popular when I'm supposed to be working.

Get on the couch with the blanket that our cats love, and AWAIT THE CUDDLES!

Put on some music via Pandora that I know will keep me moving through the day.

Drink coffee.
Go for walks.

Note that these can be combined if you go for an invigorating walk that culminates in the purchase of a caffeinated beverage.

Excellent use of multitasking!

And if you get a colleague to join you, you can even call it a meeting :)

I'll echo "sleep".

But if that's not an option -- and during the first six months or so of recovery I was tired all the time, which kinda made it not an option in a serious way -- I like to get very methodical about what I need to get done and what of that is most important, and just chug through it. I won't be into it, I won't enjoy it, I won't be creative, I won't be inspired... but at least I'll get it done.

Conversely, if it isn't important enough to merit that treatment, I need to rethink whether it's more important than sleep.

When I'm tired, I like to stay awake just to enjoy the sensations of tiredness.
