Are you a hibernator?

Tuesday December 15, 2015

I'm one of the many who have never written for Moodscope, but use the service. I've been on for years and wanted to write something, so here I am!

The holidays can be a really tough time of year for people. For me, I love this time of year, as long as I pay attention and become slower - when people are pushing their buggy into the back of me at the till, I just let them go ahead, rather than get annoyed, it isn't worth it.

I've always seen this time of year as a chance to become more like a bear and hibernate, but I learnt something interesting about bears just recently. When they hibernate, they don't sleep the whole time; they get up, move around and do all sorts of things. Just like me, I may go into my cave, but I'm still active in it. I'm either planning things for when the weather gets better, sitting by my goLite which helps my sad disorder or just relaxing because that's what this time of year is for me. I'd rather go with the seasons and stay inside a bit more, knowing that when the days start to get longer and brighter, I'll be well rested and have come up with some great ideas to do new things or continue some old things with new ideas.

Dec 21st is the shortest day of the year for us in the Northern hemisphere, well, it's only a few weeks away, so after that, the days get longer. My days of hibernating are not long... so best make the most of them while I can.
