During the winter season, we are expected to continue at the same pace we did when there was more light and the weather was warmer. To help balance the shift of seasons, consider these 10 tips to help you create space to embrace rest and restoration during the winter months.
1. Maximize the light you have.
Open curtains, remove screens, clean windows, and trim back tree branches to let in more light. Find a bright location in your home where you can sit or lie down to soak in the sun's energy. Rearrange furniture in east- or south-facing rooms to maximize natural light. Embrace the natural light, however limited, to help start off the day on the right foot.
2. Reduce obligations that add stress to your life.
Be mindful of what things are necessary and fulfilling. Let go of those things that cause you to feel overextended.
