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 🙂 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?
