There is nothing to do about winter, except to relax and take it slow.
Winter is a season without glamour. There are no bells or whistles.
Winter is a quiet season. There is less light. It’s cold. It’s dark.
When you really think about it — what is there even to like about Winter?
Actually there are some things. Winter gives us time to cool down. It is a time when we get to have a slower pace. Sometimes we are FORCED to slow down due to weather conditions. It’s winter wonderful to slow down and take it easy.
Think of it in terms of working out.
In your workout programs, you have a warm up, and intense period of time with lots of movement and then a cool down. Winter is the seasonal cool down. We have worked hard all year and at a very fast pace. In winter, we give ourselves permission to slow down, read a good book, listen to music or take in a good movie. All of these things are better than dealing with the cold, wintry weather outside.
It is just what we instinctively desire and need.
We need time to repair, rejuvenate and reset before starting off in a new direction.
So when you are done reading this short blog on what to do about winter, pour yourself a cup of something warm. Sit back, breathe and relax. There is NOTHING to do. You are doing it! You are giving yourself permission to slow down and relax.
To paraphrase some famous words — “The weather outside is frightful, but being with a good book and cozy covers — is winter delightful.
