This time of year can be hard - our office is very busy with people dealing with the affects of seasonal affective depression. Is there anything you do to help get you through January? or do you love the month and not feel the affects of the winter weather?
Exercise can be so helpful. I am a person that loves to exercise with someone - my favorites are running with a friend and tandem cycling with Steve (too cold right now). This weather creates some added challenges with the crazy snow, slush, and icy terrain. Thanks to my amazing friend for her incredible navigation in this crazy weather. I get running and talking and sometimes forget all she has to do to keep us safe. She is awesome. I was asked again to share what my tether looks like: (Thanks, Shannon! who made this stury tether - it is just the right size!)
Connecting with people. A birthday dinner with my dear family. Love them. Can you see a yellow lab peeking between me and Steve?
Sleep. We need atleast 7 hours and it is one of the best things we do to restore our body.
I often visit with clients about finding a game plan and balance to lift our spirits - nurture in the five realms to keep us balanced: physical, social, emotional, spiritual and cognitive/mental.
What lifts your spirits?
