On My Mind

A dreary day (month)

If possible, I’d prefer to just stay like this until springtime.

January is just so grey. The holidays are over, gone is the sparkle and the world looks kind of drab. 11 days in to 2017, I find myself wondering and find that the glow and anticipation of a new year has worn out.

I try to keep myself busy by reading, and moving, but somedays it is easier to just stay in bed a little longer, putting off making tea in exchange for the comfort of being under the covers a few minutes longer. It’s kind an odd time of year to try to start new and accomplish goals, if you’re in a colder climate. I love the seasons and don’t know if I’d like living somewhere that always stays the same (not to mention a place where bugs are able to grow bigger than my head), but sometimes I feel like I have a bit of seasonal affective disorder when I don’t see the sun for a few days in a row.

Tea definitely helps me get by. I try to find other things that bring me joy as well. I’m trying to practice hygge, but at the same time, I feel like I often overindulge in comfort foods πŸ™‚ I have a love-hate relationship with this time of year. It provides a good excuse not to do anything, but at the same time I feel like I should. I need to knit more, write more, just do so much more. So many goals but only so much time. I don’t know if I’ll ever meet them all but here’s to trying.

What keeps you going when the weather leaves you feeling lazy?
