IG: I’m officially over winter, you guys🙅🏻‍♀️ I probably say this every February, so this comes as no surprise. I have a certain level of tolerance and patience for the cold and grey. But by this point in the year I’m done and ready for colour and warmth to come back into my life. Two years ago I skipped winter entirely. Last year I skipped the entire month of February☀️🌴. This year, I don’t think we’re getting away until the end of April😫 So now comes the strategies for coping with winter. Surrounding myself with plants helps. Making my house colorful helps. Blasting my fireplace helps. Managing my default to pound sugar for comfort helps. UV therapy once a week helps, a lot, especially with my genetic inability to maintain adequate Vitamin D levels. I’ve gotten back into painting and they’re hella colourful, that helps. Prioritizing sleep helps. Forcing myself to get outside helps. Maintaining my routine helps. Cooking and eating warming and colourful food helps, like this veggie stew, though my motivation to do so is definitely lower right now. But I’ll power through as best as possible and keep doing my best to fill my body with good things, knowing that spring is not THAT far away🙏🏼. Tell me, if you live in a northern climate, how do you rock the long periods of cold and grey?
