Throughout the centuries, poets have described a sense of sadness, loss and lethargy which can accompany the shortening days of fall and winter. Many cultures and religions have winter festivals associated with candles or fire. Many of us notice tiredness, a bit of weight gain, difficulty getting out of bed and bouts of “the blues” as fall turns to winter.
The winter months bring with them an unique opportunity for us to hibernate and reflect. Rest is imperative for healing and rejuvenation. Winter is the opportune time to get the “me” time you deserve. There are so many faculties at work within your system on an everyday basis. You work mentally. You work physically. You work spiritually. You work emotionally. With conscious rest, you ready yourself to be in optimum shape to fulfill your purpose: to live!
