The end of January is a time of seeking comfort and coziness and resisting work and effort. Or at least that’s how it is for me!
It feels like a great time to get cozy, enjoy hot beverages, sleep as much as possible, and avoid working hard. Despite a belief that I ought to be productive all the time and always push forward in my business and my life in general, my body and mind are begging me for quiet and respite.
There is a natural cycle in life that flows from creativity, production, and great activity, assessment and gathering, and finally rest and recuperation. It’s OK to embrace the resting season fully.
It is also true that there are times when it is legitimately more difficult to coordinate efforts and do activities. When life is more unpredictable it naturally encourages us to step back and focus more inward. Snow and ice have a natural ability to slow us down and force us to slow down.
When we get upset, it highlights an area where we feel we aren’t getting what we need. Our cranky side has a lot of wisdom for us if we listen to its underlying message. When we give ourselves what we need, we more easily move into a flow where we have more to offer. This is why it is so important to allow ourselves periods of rest and nourishment, as well as periods of activity, accomplishments, and providing for others.Support the show
