During this time of year, I notice a general feeling of fatigue and decrease in motivation. Of course, these feelings could all be categorized under the title of a “depressed mood”, but the recurrent frequency and varied intensity tackled my curiosity.
I could either try to fight, combat or defeat these feelings, OR try something new and go with the flow, ride the wave and see what’s on the other side.
This year, I shall make room for the fatigue, give myself permission to sleep in some mornings, or head in earlier in the evenings making room for longer nights. Maybe I could listen to my body’s wisdom instead of ignoring it. This would make February a month to recharge: eat warm meals, rest, catch up on sleep, meditate occasionally.
February then becomes a month of wellness instead of the blues, because when the sun starts to shine and the breeze becomes warm and my skin is exposed to it once again, and the days get longer, I will once again feel better, as I do every year.
